2020 might be one of the most challenging years in decades. As the world was not only struggling with the COVID-19 pandemic, but also the rising bigotry, hate speech, and extremism. From suicide bombing in Quetta, Pakistan, the burning of Qur’an by far-right activists in Sweden, the Islamist terrorist stabbings in Nice, France to the recent mass shooting in Vienna, Austria, and another mass killing in the village of Koshebe, Nigeria, we have not seen any progress in the fight against hate speech, bigotry, terrorism, and extremism. In spite of that, international collective efforts have also been conducted by various actors and institutions in hope for a better future of inter-religious harmony. This year, another chance at improving what we have left last year will proceed.

Following the contraction at -5.32% in the second and -3.49% in the third quarter of 2020, Indonesia’s economy has fallen into recession. Nevertheless, World Bank and IMF came with positive news as they predicted Indonesian economy to expand between 4.8% – 6.1% next year. The arrival of vaccine in Indonesia also increases public confidence that Indonesia’s economy will soon recover. However, economic rebound still depends on various factors, including politics. What would Indonesian economic and political landscape looks like next year? When will our economic activities return to normalcy? What kind of policy breakthroughs are needed to spur reforms and transformations for a resilient recovery?
