Indonesia: The Changing Front in the War on Terror

Location: The Heritage Foundation's Allison Auditorium

During the past seven years, Indonesia has transitioned from a dictatorship to a democracy while serving as a haven for one of Al Qaeda's most deadly affiliates, Jemaah Islamiya.

Indonesia, the world's most populous Muslim nation, is a pivotal country in Southeast Asia not only for the promotion of democracy and moderate Islam, but also for winning the War on Terror.

Please join us as Senator Bond and our expert panelists discuss Indonesia's important role in the region.
