This is the first publication update aimed at highlighting the writings and studies that have been published either by the previous and present researchers of the Institute. There are three research chairs at the Institute of Borneo Studies, the Nusantara Chair, the Sino-Borneo Chair and also the Dayak chair. The Nusantara chair highlights the issues revolving around the Malay community in Borneo, including the history and cultural stratifiation of society. Publications by the Dayak chair also include tales of some Dayak tribes (Bidayuh, Penan and Iban), issues related to the border and tribal identity. Publications from the Sino-Borneo Chair highlighted in this PU. Next, from the Sino-Borneo chair we also focus on the background and characteristics of the Chinese Muslims, and also introduce a successful Chinese entrepreneur figure. Generally, publications featured aim to improve the understanding and knowledge of ethnic backgrounds that are on the island of Borneo. In the future, we hope to continue to highlight more publications around the islands of Borneo and its communities.
