In order to promote the diversity of Indonesian society, the Faculty of Psychology at Atma Jaya Catholic University of Indonesia held the International Conference on Psychology and Multiculturalism (ICPM) 2017. ICPM is an international conference on Psychology and Multiculturalism with special emphasis on the historic metropolitan city of Jakarta. The birth of modern cities in Indonesia occurred as a result of colonial government's policies in the context of consolidating economic, political and military power. The study of the trends and natural criteria of urbanization, since the pre-and post-colonial period up to the present era of globalization, should require our attention. Therefore the theme for this year’s conference is Urban Living and Multicultural Cities in Asia: From Colonial Past to Global Future.
