Abstract

The purpose of this research is to describe the articulation of Osing’s culture on three community radios in Banyuwangi. Understanding language as an identity medium is essential to analyzing underlying cultural dynamics and the crucial vital they play. The Government policy reshaped Osing's identity as an added value to drive regional economic growth. This impacted local, cultural practices. The government created the Osing culture as the primary character used to differentiate them from other cultural practices. Notwithstanding, this research argues that culture is not an entity that can be organized and represented in a monolithic form. Using qualitative methods, this study found that the Osing culture, especially the practice of its language, became a medium of discourse that intertwined with various other cultures. Furthermore, radio has become a space for cultural encounters and a site for cultural submissions that are continually changing and discovering social contexts. Keywords: Osing Languages, Osing Community Radio, Osing Representations

Abstract

Sidomukti Village, Kebomas District, Gresik Regency, East Java has been known as one of the centers of gold jewelry production which is run traditionally based on the Micro Small Medium Enterprise (MSME) industry. This study aims to describe how changes in the industrial structure were initiated by the gold jewelry craftsmen in Sidomukti as part of the adaptation strategy in facing the economic crisis. The crisis were the decline in the scale of the gold jewelry industry and income due to fluctuations in gold prices since the 1997/1998 monetary crisis. In calculation, the formula applied is the price of gold in the market depends on the exchange rate of the dollar against the rupiah. The lower and more stable the gold price in the market, the more conducive the gold jewelry industry climate. However, since the 1997/1998 monetary crisis, the price of gold in the market tends to rise and is unstable. Using a qualitative research method with a descriptive approach, this study explained the adaptation strategies carried out by the craftsmen in dealing with the crisis. The craftsmen change the structure of the putting out industry that has been going on so far, by modifying the production chain that previously pivoted to the skipper to be more flexible. Craftsmen no longer depend on the production cycle on orders from the skipper, but independently try to produce and market them independently. This study elaborates issues of MSME-based industrial sector resilience and adaptiveness from economic turbulence. Keywords: Adaptation Strategy, Gold Jewelry Industry, Industrial Structure, Putting Out

Abstract

This article discusses the formation of a ‘third space’ and the articulation of Hindu cultural identity in Sidoarjo, East Java. The hegemonic discourse generally places restrictions on the articulation of religion and related issues. Notwithstanding, minority groups have tried to maintain and represent their Hindu identity. This paper addresses this issue through ethnographic research, adopting a post-colonial perspective, drawing particularly on Homi K. Bhabha’s theory of the third space (space in between). The results showed that Hindus have interpreted and articulated their cultural space through identity negotiation. In the Sidoarjo regency, there are three primary categories of Hinduism: Hinduism from Sidoarjo; Hinduism from outside Sidoarjo; and Hinduism from Bali. Despite differences between them, Hindus have worked together to develop strategies to challenge the hegemonic discourse, developing a third spatial formation that is shaped by cultural codes, social networks, educational institutions, military structure, and ogoh-ogoh. As such, the Hindus third space is productive, dynamic, and negotiatiable. Keywords: Hindu Community, Postcolonial Identity, Third Space

Abstract

This article explores the concept of leisure time and its connections to trends in tourism. Examining the specific implications of tourist agendas on previously ‘rural’ villages, this study demonstrates how the tourist agenda has shaped leisure time and contributed to the transformation of places into more commercial, tourist hubs, aiming to maximize consumer attraction. Crucially, new economic features associated with the tourism trade have altered social relations and dynamics in rural areas. These changes can also be seen in Yogyakarta, especially villages in the Sleman area. This study uses qualitative methods to explore the economic changes experienced within the village associated with its formation as a tourist destination, drawing on observational and secondary data sets. Changes in economic patterns, generally, cannot be separated from the tourism trend. In this article, tourism trend refers to consumer market which emphasizing the modification of classical nuances which refers to the proliferation of restaurants and cafes in rural areas at Sleman. This study argues that the tourism trend in rural areas has not only changed their economic complexion but has also highlighted the character of the village as a space for urban community consumption. The economic shift from the expansion of the tourism sector is assumed to be able to contribute to development of rural areas. However, it is not necessarily possible to realize that sustainable regional development demand creativity to compete with the emergence of new entertainment venues. Keywords: Tourism Transformation, Village, Leisure, Space Consumption.

Abstract

Gender discrimination is a pressing issue in gender research across the globe. While the Government of Nepal has taken several measures to address gender discrimination it remains prevalent at all levels of society. This paper examines the prevalence of gender discrimination in Nepal and its variability based on socio-demographic status. It employs micro-level data generated by Nepal National Governance Survey 2017/18 was used and analyzed through a logistic regression model. The results showed that the experience of gender-based discrimination varies based on socio-demographic factors including: gender, age, urban/rural, education, and economic status. Women’s experiences of discrimination or marginalization vary based on their intersectional identity. The deeply ingrained patriarchal gender ideology in Nepal, driven by traditional cultural values and practices, perpetuates discrimination along gender lines. Keywords: Discrimination, Gender, Patriarchal, Women, Nepal.

Abstract

You have the opportunity to decide whether or not a person gets caned, the only caveat is that they have committed a crime against you. What will you do? This essay explores the moral complexity of caning in Singapore through an exploration of corporal punishment, criminal justice, moral philosophy, and the Asian values debate; a dilemma that ultimately places concerns of society and the individual at odds. In doing so, the essay argues that the morality of caning changes on the basis of the ethical framework and modification of situation variables. Even so, the moral complexity of caning is not superficially evident. In order to thoroughly engage with all elements of this complexity, this essay begins by attempting to decipher the place of punishment within international human rights frameworks. From there, the essay explores the morality of punishment and its employ in colonial endeavors. This leads to a discussion of modernization, humanitarian ideologies, and control. By creating a framework for analyzing criminal justice in Singapore—including an outline of the intersections of criminal justice, development, and prosperity —this essay seeks to explore the balance between corporal punishment as a tool of prosperity and corporal punishment as a source of pain and degradation. When placed in consequentialist and virtue-based ethical frameworks caning in Singapore looks very different, forcing the moral actor to weigh societal concerns with concerns for individual pain, suffering, and liberties. Keywords: Caning, Morality, Society, Punishment.

Abstract

This article explores the concept of ‘living law’ from a spatio-temporal and emotional perspective. Understood as a dynamic and interactive process, living law shapes and reproduces the concepts of law, emotion, and landscape. Based on the semantic findings in decency-related court decisions, this article argues that sensing the living law is to be understood as seeing the physical legal landscape, believing emotional common sense, and anticipating guided by communitarian atmosphere. The daily (legal) experiences captured in case-law are, essentially, assemblages of various meanings and spaces tied up homogeneously in an ideologically manner. Through this examination, living law appears increasingly complex, unstable, and non-linear, especially in terms of its performativity. Law has the potential not only to facilitate social transformation but can negatively impact vulnerable groups. Keywords: Emotion, Landscape, Living Law, Performativity

Abstract

The concept of the welfare state upholds the existence of the legal system under the premise of legal certainty and the protection of basic human rights. Paragraph IV of the 1945 Constitution of the Republic of Indonesia emphasizes the existence of “state obligations” and “the government duty” to protect and serve all public interest. The normative basis of the Constitution was translated as the national principle to embody the public services. The Public Service Law Number 25 of 2009 is a formulation of legal certainty. However, the main problem that occurs in the public services is maladministration in bureaucracy. It is important to build interpretations of the authority attached to the bureaucratic system or on subjects who become government officials. By analyzing the Constitution, this article states that the government official dimensions must be considered as an interrelated issue, so that the articulate practice must be seen as inherent social conditions. Keywords: Responsibility, Government Officials, Maladministration.
