Abstract

Development administration is primarily concerned with the various strategies to achieve accelerated national development, especially in developing countries. One major instrument for achieving national development objectives is the development plan. The development plan stipulates development goals and targets, various policies, programs and projects, and finances to achieve the objectives of national development. However, despite all these efforts in Nigeria, it seems the level of underdevelopment is still high considering the various obvious statistics and realities on the ground. The paper examines the efforts of the government at national planning over the years and the achievement made so far on SDGs. It identified the intricacies and dynamism involved over time in the achievement of SDGs and as well proffers solutions for better management. Secondary data was derived from books, journals, online publications, and government official reports in gathering information for the paper. Content ana lysis was adopted in analyzing the data collected. The study concludes that attempts at achieving the various targets of the SDGs were not successful due to certain inherent peculiarities in Nigeria. The high level of poverty, unemployment, inequality and insecurity, low infrastructural development, and poor social services like education, health services, housing, electricity, etc. are peculiar indicators of these failures. The paper suggests among others: the building of institutional capacity and fit for governance, the need to confront the structural impediments confronting attempts at achieving public policy through a constitutional review, emphasis on infrastructural development adequate for achieving national development and enhancing technological development, and capacity building through a viable and efficient educational sector.

Abstract

The European Union (EU) has a complete and standard legal system, which is always the object of research and evaluation to learn for many countries. The EU comprises countries with an appropriate personal income tax system to ensure human rights. To ensure equality and human rights, and development in every member state, the EU seeks to harmonise personal income tax law, an area primarily of national jurisdiction. This article aims to study and evaluate some basic regulations that the EU has issued to create compatibility of the personal income tax law of the member states, better ensure human rights and promote the development of the Union. Based on the experiences of the EU, the article analyses some implications for the harmonisation of personal income tax law within the ASEAN from the perspective of international private law.

Abstract

Racial discrimination and violence against minority communities are prohibited by law, and the protection of these minority groups is protected by the Constitution, national laws, and international laws or conventions ratified by Indonesia, such as ICCPR, and ICERD. Violence cases involving ethnic Papuans are a form of human rights violation that is often ignored by the state. This study will use the normative juridical approach method, by presenting and analyzing the validity of the provisions of the legislation. Socio-legal studies, in this study, will be conducted by conducting an analysis of social studies, the theory of multidisciplinary theory of social sciences, related to the phenomenon of racial discrimination against ethnic Papuans, such as Psychological science in looking at a guess, to discrimination; communication science; Theory of Social Integration and Disintegration; and Social Conflict Theory. The aim of this study was to examine law enforcement, using paradigms in the social sciences. In this study, it will be reviewed on the quality of law enforcement, the extent to which the rules are enforced, as well as the extent to which law enforcement, as well as the government, can fulfill the rights of citizens not to discriminate in it. This research shows that discrimination against the Papuan people is caused by racial discrimination in various aspects, economic, political, educational, law enforcement, etc. The application of anti-discrimination law must be based on the professionalism of law enforcement officers, so as not to cause new discrimination in law enforcement. This study recommends that the Government of Indonesia to further increase political will in the enforcement of anti-discrimination and violence laws in all cases, especially against Papuan ethnic groups. Maximum anti-discrimination law enforcement efforts are needed to realize human rights goals, namely the fulfillment, enforcement, and protection of human rights.

Abstract

In recent years, Vietnam has actively and vigorously developed and strengthened law enforcement and facilitated access to the law to protect human rights and legitimate interests. After formulating the Judicial Reform Strategy and implementing the law, the State has created favourable conditions for vulnerable groups to participate in Vietnam's political, social, economic, and cultural life. However, it still faces challenges in ensuring and facilitating access to the law and raising legal awareness. In particular, women, ethnic minorities, people with disabilities, and children are the most vulnerable groups. Therefore, this article focuses on the guarantee of the rights of vulnerable groups in the process of law-making in Vietnam today to unveil difficulties and limitations; on that basis, it makes proposals for ensuring the rights of vulnerable groups in the legislative process in the coming time. Keywords: Human Rights, Rights of Vulnerable Groups, Law-making

Abstract

Indonesia is one of the countries that are willing to accept the arrival of refugees to its territory. Although it has not yet ratified the 1951 Refugee Convention and the 1967 Protocol of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), Indonesia has issued Peraturan Presiden Nomor 125/2016 on international refugees. In addition, the Indonesian government, especially President Joko Widodo, issued various statements which mostly emphasized fulfilling rights and upholding humanity for refugees demonstrating Indonesia's commitment to carrying out the human values contained in the Preamble of Undang-Undang Dasar 1945 and Pancasila as a dominant discourse of Indonesia's strategic culture. However, the discourse seems to have shifted in the era after the COVID-19 pandemic which has also potentially changed the Indonesian government's treatment of refugees. The negative impacts in various sectors made Indonesia have to prioritize the safety of its citizens and potentially neglect the fulfillment of the rights of refugees. Indonesia's burden in handling refugees during the pandemic is exacerbated by the unresponsiveness of UNHCR and the International Organization for Migration (IOM) which should be responsible for handling refugees. This leaves groups of refugees in a vulnerable condition because they are neglected by the Indonesian government both at the central and regional levels. Therefore, this paper tries to analyze aspects behind the shift in the Indonesian government's policy regarding foreign refugees using strategic cultural discourse and provide advice to the Indonesian government for handling refugees in pandemic and/or after pandemic situations without forgetting the humanitarian aspect of refugees. Keywords: Humanity, Strategic Culture, COVID-19, Refugees, Indonesian Government
