While Islam-based Indonesian civil society organisations have been largely ambivalent about refugees historically, the Andaman Sea crisis of 2015 saw an outpouring of sympathy for refugees in Indonesia. In the wake of this event, many CSOs emerged to address the needs of Rohingya refugees both in Indonesia itself and in camps in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh. This paper will analyse their activities and effectiveness in the context of notions of Islamic solidarity.
