Abstract

In these excerpts of interviews, four young cultural activists offer their vision of an inclusive, tolerant, and cross-cultural Jakarta. They discuss the marginalization of the Betawians, who are considered to be the native inhabitants of the city, the escalation of identity politics, and power struggles in the globalized metropolitan.
