This description of Hasanain Juaini's work was prepared when Hasanain Juaini was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2003.
Hasanain Juaini, a traditional Indonesian religious teacher and leader ([i]tuan guru), is reforming religious boarding schools ([i]pesantren) to provide a system of education emphasizing pluralism, tolerance, democracy, and opportunities for women. By implementing these concepts in concrete practices not only within the school but also with various groups in society through the management and networking of pesantren, Hasanain is helping to prevent potential conflicts among Indonesia's religiously-and ethnically-diverse population.
