This special issue contains selected papers from the International research conference Social and Humaniora Research Symposium (SoRes) held in Bandung, Indonesia on 18th October 2022. This event was hosted by the Universitas Islam Bandung.
The conference brought together key educators, policy makers and civil society organisers to discuss cultural, structural, and practical issues from an Islamic perspective. By approaching innovation in social policy and practice through religious philosophy and teachings, the contributors to this collection seek to use Islamic cultural mores to frame and inform interdisciplinary responses to some of Indonesia's most pressing social issues.
This KnE Social Sciences special issue contains 139 peer-reviewed articles that explore various aspects of Indonesian society through an Islamic lens. From early-childhood education to entrepreneurship, law making to the power of new media, the scholars in this issue propose innovative solutions to existing problems and challenges, enabling policymakers to view policy through the eyes of their citizens and develop a society that caters to the needs of its people.
These articles will be of interest to academics, students, and professionals researching or working on contemporary changes and development in political, social, and religious studies, especially from Islamic Perspectives.
