This paper presented in the seminar examines the impact of Islamic holidays on daily violence in Indonesia. Data from the 2005-2014 National Violence Monitoring System are employed to create district-based panel data on violent incidents, and the fixed effect Poisson model is used to estimate the causal effect. The results consistently show that Islamic holidays significantly reduce the intensity of violence in Indonesia’s districts.
