Tolerant City Index: Singkawang Highest, Tanjung Balai Lowest

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Human rights advocacy group Setara Institute has revealed its study that ranked cities based on its tolerance level through its third tolerant city index (IKT) that involved 94 Indonesian cities. 

“The city with the highest IKT is Singkawang in West Kalimantan, which scores a final result of 6,513 points,” said Setara Institute chairman Hendardi today.

According to Hendardi, Singkawang has successfully promoted tolerance by adopting its regional mid-term development plans (RPJMD) and other legal products. Meanwhile, the city with the lowest tolerance level is Tanjung Balai, North Sumatra.

The 10 most tolerant cities in order are Singkawang (6,513), Salatiga (5,447), Pematang Siantar (6,280), Manado (6,030), Ambon (5,960), Bekasi (5,890), Kupang (5,857), Tomohon (5,833), Binjai (5,830) and Surabaya (5,823).

Meanwhile, the least tolerant cities besides Tanjung Balai are Banda Aceh, Jakarta, Cilegon, Padang, Depok, Bogor, Makassar, Medan and Sabang.

Hendardi said the IKT scoring system aimed at promoting cities that uphold tolerance with the hopes that it would prompt other cities to better their tolerance level.

The determining elements of the tolerance index are practices involving religious freedom, gender equality and social inclusion that are guaranteed and protected by the Law (UU). In addition, elements regarding city administrations' actions toward tolerance are also taken into account.
