Abstract

Indonesia experienced communal ethnoreligious conflicts during the political transition from authoritarian era toward a democratic period in 1999 – 2005. After a decade of violent conflict, the Indonesian government has conducted peacebuilding programs in post-conflict societies in order to redevelop social trust and social solidarity among members of societies that contribute to the peace building process. This study attempts to identify post-conflict societies’ quality of social solidarity based on Fessler’ study. The study was conducted in Poso Regency, which is a post-religious conflict area. The study employs survey method and has interviewed 373 respondents. The data is analyzed by a descriptive statistic. The results show that Poso people have experienced the collapse of social solidarity due to violent religious conflicts. The majority of respondents feel as part of the community and are always open to open relationships with anyone regardless of ethnic or religious background. Poso young people have positive interpersonal relationships although they have experienced violent conflict, indicating that the Poso community has strong social solidarity.
