While Islamist forms of terrorism have received a great deal of attention from scholars, insider accounts by indigenous scholars are still under-represented. This Special Forum of the Asian Journal of Social Psychology brings together articles on religious terrorism and sacred violence in Indonesia, the world’s most populous Islamic state. They combine qualitative methods including interviews with terrorist members of KOMPAK and Jemaah Islamiyah (including the Bali Bombers) with quantitative methods using structural equation modeling to explain a national representative sample’s attitudes towards sacred violence.
