Abstract: Indonesia¿s war on terrorism has been successful as shown by the ability of its elite terrorism task force - Densus 88 and the police - to gather intelligence, conduct successful arrests and crippling the terrorist network. With a recidivism rate lingering above 10%, Indonesia¿s deradicalisation efforts do not share the same success. Can deradicalisation work in Indonesia? This thesis will argue that disengagement is the best strategy to prevent future violence committed by Islamist terrorists and cultural contextualisation is the most critical factor in Indonesia¿s deradicalisation strategy. The main concern of this paper is the worrying rate of recidivism among released terrorist convicts and the management of the deradicalisation programme. The radical ideology should be aptly contextualised in tandem with the cultural environment in which the terrorist is operating. Several policy recommendations are offered in the concluding chapter of the thesis.
