Abstract
The East Timor referendum that happened in 1999 has changed many things in the lives of the people of the island of Timor. Previously, this island only consisted of one country, but now it is divided into two countries. This has led to changes in the lives of Timorese people, especially those who were previously lived in East Timor but later decided to move and choose to be Indonesian citizens. The views of those who were once Timorese citizens towards citizenship and nationalism are certainly different from those who have never experienced the separation of the country. In a few people who are on the border, have crossed the border, and see their place of birth as a different country, there are certainly a number of interesting things that can be explored. The concept of nationalism was actually born in the modern era since the formation of a political institution called the state. This study tries to see how the perception of IKIP Budi Utomo students ex-East Timor towards nationalism and the concept of citizenship in themselves. The research method used is qualitative. The informants in this research were chosen specifically as IKIP Budi Utomo students who have been born in East Timor and lived there for several years. Data collection is done through interviews and observations. From this research, it is known that these students prefer to become Indonesian citizens because of the access to the education they receive, family, and better security.
