Indonesian citizens in @ction
It becomes clear that the emergence of information technology, particularly the Internet, has given new impetus for the birth, or more precisely the reinvention, of civil society. This research shows how various civic engagements impact the shaping (i.e. construction and structuration) of the civil society in Indonesia, and more importantly, social change. It contributes to the overall debate on the use of social media and civil society organizations in Indonesia in particular and global at large.
