Biography

The Qur’an is the supreme authority in Islam. It is the fundamental and paramount source of the creed, rituals, ethics, and laws of the Islamic religion. It is the book that differentiates between right and wrong, so that nowadays, when the Muslim world is dealing such universal issues as globalization, the environment, combating terrorism and drugs, issues of medical ethics, feminism, evidence to support the various arguments is sought in the Qur’an. 

M.A.S. Abdul Haleem

I am a lecturer at the International Relations Study Program at the President University of Indonesia. I received my Ph.D. from the Graduate Program in International Studies (GPIS) of Old Dominion University (ODU), Norfolk, the USA under the Fulbright Scholar Program. My research interest focuses on two themes: a) of how communities respond to/reshape globalization, and b) environmental governance. Currently, I am researching the implementation of Spatial Development Initiatives (SDIs) or Landscape Governance in Indonesia. At President University I enjoy teaching a variety of courses in international political economy to undergraduate students both with traditional Face2Face instructional methods and online.

I earned my BA in Political Science from Gadjah Mada University, Indonesia in 2005 with a BA thesis on a neo-Gramscian analysis of the Zapatista movement in Mexico. I received my MA in International Relations from the University of Groningen, the Netherlands supported by the StuNed program in 2010. My MA thesis examines the role of China as a responsible stakeholder in the International Financial System.
