This chapter looks at selected Muslim public intellectuals who have actively promoted cosmopolitan attitudes among Muslims in Southeast Asia. These public intellectuals are academics in universities and social commentators who write books and essays calling for cooperation between Muslims and non-Muslims in their countries. The chapter discusses the ideas of three prominent cosmopolitan Muslim public intellectuals: Chandra Muzaffar, Azyumardi Azra, and Hussin Mutalib. It focuses on three of the critical concepts that pervade their active writing and advocacy careers: Qur'anic justice, ‘Islam Nusantara’ (Southeast Asian Islam), and Islamic assertiveness — concepts which push the boundaries of thinking about Muslim cosmopolitanism in Southeast Asia.

Keywords:   public intellectuals, Chandra Muzaffar, Azyumardi Azra, Hussin Mutalib, cosmopolitan attitudes, Qur'anic justice, Islam Nusantara, Islamic assertiveness, Southeast Asian Islam
