This is the story of how democracy became entrenched in the world's largest Muslim-majority country. Indonesia was threatened by a possibility of deadlock over a new constitution and by violence between Islamic and secular groups. It managed to overcome these divisions by adopting an unconventional, gradual course of constitutional amendment that made consensus possible. The Indonesians also adopted political institutions that preserved their political pluralism and provided incentives for politicians to behave moderately. As a result, Indonesia has managed to hold multiple elections and to transfer power peacefully.
