Continuity Through Guided Mobility
This chapter looks at the evidence that determine the force of guidance in mobility that culminates the conditions under which sociocultural changes and religious orientations happen in the course of Indonesians' transnational mobility to the Arabian Peninsula. It reviews the aspects of guided mobility, the reciprocal demand–supply logic of guidance, the profitability of guiding, and the prospect of capitalizing on mobile experiences. It also determines the effects that migration and pilgrimage have on social change in Indonesia. The chapter complements studies that show how the conservative turn in Indonesia is highly complex, regionally diverse, and has underlying local social tensions. It speculates the functioning of features of mobility that are not perceived as restraints and enhance sociocultural continuity rather than change.
