Abstract: This working paper presents two interesting examples of ‘practices of pluralism’ in Indonesia. Both authors work in the NGO sector and participate in the Regional Team of the Promoting Pluralism Knowledge program in Indonesia. Both describe their engagement with the challenges they meet when trying to effectively promote pluralism in local communities. Farid Wajidi suggests somewhat ironically that the pro-pluralism movement in Indonesia can learn a lot from the varied strategies that fundamentalist organizations adopt when they try to reach their target groups. Darmiyanti Muchtar believes that community based assessment is a crucial element in advocacy work on pluralism at grass root level.
