Building a New Political Structure in Post-authoritarian East Java: The New Role of Intellectuals

  • Airlangga Pribadi Kusman
Chapter

Abstract

This chapter describes about how local East Java networks that linked the intellectuals and political elites which were established since the New Order era emerged and worked to defend the entrenched dominant interest in the democracy era through the electoral politics arena. A particular attention is especially given to the role of intellectuals as political consultants in their engagement with the manipulation of the democratic process to the co-optation practices which were undergone by the dominant social forces to the social activists including academics and journalists to win the interests of factions among allied business-political alliances in the electoral political arena.
