Abstract

• Under the first Jokowi administration (2014-2019), “sharia economy” gained increased support from the state. Arguably, this will be more evident in Jokowi’s second term, as the new vice-president Amin Ma’ruf, has been an ardent advocate of the sharia economy over the last three decades.
• While the notion of sharia economy is dynamic and evolving, it has gained greater traction because the liberal and capitalistic nature of the present economic system is not acceptable to Islamists.
• The advocacy of sharia economy is partly driven by the desire for more economic and social justice for Muslims, but it also reflects the Islamists` growing political assertiveness. Sharia economy can create social segregation and discrimination against religious minority groups in Indonesia. Halal economy is one example.
• The state’s support for sharia economy demonstrates the new tendency of Islamisation in Indonesia to extend beyond cultural Islamisation to structural Islamisation.
