Chapter Summary

This article demonstrates how Indonesian radio (radio news agencies, community radio and commercial talk-back radio) since the fall of Suharto has lived up to, contradicted, altered or abused the ideals of Habermas’s concept of the public sphere. It focuses on activities that can be roughly divided into the following three categories: 1. Activities that represent the ideals of a Habermasian public sphere; 2. Activities that include alternative “public” strategies; 3. Activities that are controversial with regard to the public interests they claim to defend. The “publicness” as expressed in Indonesian radio gives shape to specific manifestations and interrelations between cosmopolitanism and patriotism, which transcend the boundaries between society and the state, the commercial and the public, and the local and the national or the international.
