Abstract

This introduction of the special issue on "Mass Violence and the End of the Dutch Colonial Empire in Indonesia" of the Journals of Genocide Studies has a twofold agenda. Firstly, it seeks to stimulate the debate about violence in colonial and decolonizing Indonesia among a wider, non-Dutch- (or Indonesian-) speaking audience. The English-speaking world could and should learn from this particular case of mass violence in (de)colonization. Secondly, it aims to direct the learning process in the other direction. It is the intention of the authors to interrogate the Dutch as well as the Indonesian debate with the concepts and categories developed by scholars working on the nexus between genocide and colonialism.
