The sudden fall of the authoritarian New Order in May 1998 drastically
changed the landscape of Indonesian local politics. Newly found political
freedom as well as opportunities made available by decentralization
policies generated strong political and social movements in the regions.
Ethnic politics, the struggle for power allocation among ethnic groups,
is no longer considered as treacherous as it was under the New Order
and in fact has become increasingly visible at local levels.
