This concluding chapter reiterates the volume's main argument that Muslim cosmopolitanism has provided Southeast Asians with the vision and vocabulary to come together, rather than to become increasingly divided, in the age of the networked society. In spite of the sensationalized reports from the ‘terrorist industry’ encroaching into the religious and cultural lives of Muslims, the chapter presents a more vibrant picture of mutual cooperation and peace between Muslims and non-Muslims, citing the instances analysed in the previous chapters to further expound on this argument. However, the chapter argues that there is still further work to be done in expanding the scope of studies of Muslim cosmopolitanism, and suggests further avenues for research.

Keywords:   Muslim cosmopolitanism, terrorism, Southeast Asians, further research, sensationalism, networked society, Muslims, non-Muslims
