This chapter analyses the debates on the relative merits of claims to self-governance made in Indonesia based on peoplehood, place, and social norms. It considers the question of religious law and its place in a democratic society. It argues that the processes of convergence across normative systems discussed for Islam in Indonesia are characteristic of competing universalistic normative structures.

Keywords:   Indonesia, federalism, self-governance, normative pluralism, Islam
