Chapter Summary

This chapter examines the concepts that link political change at the national level and ethnic politics to support the main argument that the politics of the Dayaks of West Kalimantan have always been constrained by the nature of the regime. It then links ethnic identity formation and past marginalization with the particular nature of Dayak politics that are quite different from those of Malays, the other dominant ethnic group in the province. The chapter explores related theories of ethnic conflict as a framework for the sub-arguments that the massive conflict between the Dayaks and Madurese were non-political, although at the end they strengthened Dayak politics.

Keywords: Bornean Malays; Dayak politics; ethnic conflict; political marginalization; West Kalimantan
