- Indonesia in general may appear to the western eye watching through the western media as a wild country. Yet the Indonesian people are particularly peaceful, and the political and social situation in Indonesia has remained amazingly stable in view of the challenges met by the country and its people. Terror, by nature, may strike anywhere at any time. We believe that Jakarta is safe, and we feel that the best response to terrorism is to show our determination to continue working together as scientists of all origins, beliefs, and denominations.
iiWAS2007 carries no political message or symbol. It is organized in collaboration with and by consensus of local organizations and people.
