This study explores the activities of the Indonesian nationalist student organisation in the Netherlands, the Perhimpoenan Indonesia, in the capitals of Europe in the interwar period. These activities connect the history of Indonesian nationalism and anticolonialism to the history of anticolonial and anti-imperial movements in Europe. This dissertation argues that the emergence of large and powerful movement in the Dutch Indies in this period should be understood in an international context of anticolonial movements and struggles.
