The growing rate of CO2 emissions in developing countries, especially Malaysia, is becoming an area of concern for policy makers as well as researchers, because the need for analysing different predictors of CO2 emissions has become so prominent. In response to this emerging need, the current study examined the impact of urbanisation, inward foreign direct investment (IFDI), and trade openness on the CO2 emission levels in Malaysia. For this purpose,  data was collected about  urbanisation, IFDI, trade openness, and CO2 emissions of Malaysia for the last 30 years and a time series ARDL approach was adopted to assess the short-term and long-term relationships between variables. The unit root test, co-integration and ARDL modelling led the researcher to find that urbanisation, IFDI, and trade openness have significant positive effects on CO2 emissions in the long run however, there is no significant short-term impact of trade openness and IFDI on CO2 emissions in Malaysia. Therefore, it has been suggested through the findings of this study that urbanisation, IFDI, and trade openness are alarming for CO2 emissions in the long-run in Malaysia. These findings will contribute to theory and practice by setting guidelines for researchers and policymakers regarding the part played by urbanisation, IFDI, and trade openness in enhancing the CO2 emissions of the country.

The present study attempts to examine the role of online engagement and online interactivity in improving the marketing performance of the Indonesian oil and gas sector. Along with the direct relationships, the mediating role of brand attachment is also investigated. The primary data has been drawn from a sample size of 294. To examine the impact of incorporated variables on marketing performance, Confirmatory factors analysis and the Structural equation modelling approach is incorporated in the study. Several tests were applied including: descriptive analysis, KMO and Bartlett’s test, rotated component matrix, convergent and discriminant validity. The direct effects indicated that online engagement and online interactivity are the significant and positive drivers of marketing performance,  creating a significant impact on the improvement of marketing performance. Similarly, the indirect effects show that brand attachment acts as the significant mediator between online engagement and marketing performance. Also, brand attachment significantly mediated the relationship of online interactivity and marketing performance.  The study embraces several theoretical, practical and policy making implications for the marketing management practitioners and strategy developers to attain high levels of marketing performance and business expansion. Finally, various limitations have been given along with  recommendations for in-depth findings by  future researchers. Pages 37 to 56

Causality between Stock Market Development and Economic Growth: Evidence from Emerging Markets

Hadeel Yaseena, Asma’a Al-Amarnehb*, aThe University of Jordan, Amman, Jordan, bMiddle East University, Amman, Jordan, Email: ah.yaseen@ju.edu.jo,  b*aalamarneh@meu.edu.au  

The stock market is an indicator of an economy’s financial health and it indicates the mood of investors in a country. As such, stock market development is an important ingredient for GDP growth. This paper studies the causal relationship between stock market development and GDP growth rate of a small emerging market, namely Amman Stock Exchange (ASE) over the period 2000 - 2018. The results revealed that stock market development affects GDP growth with a unidirectional causality relationship between stock market development and GDP growth in the short run. In addition, we confirmed a bidirectional causality relationship between the interest rate spread and the GDP growth in the short run. Moreover, this paper sheds some light on one of the most important developments taking place in the equities market; that is the initiation of the Over-the-Counter Market in 2016. A causality relationship between ASE liquidity and the OTC-market liquidity was conducted. Our results stress that there is a bi-directional causality between the liquidity of ASE and the OTC-market liquidity. Pages 57 to 78

This study conducts on the pattern of English borrowing on the internet lexicon as the internet code used by university students in Medan, Indonesia. The data collection is purposely done during one semester (four months in every Monday and Thursday). The amount of the data is 53 lexicons. To recheck the reliability and validity of the data, 100 of first-year students of Political and Social Science Faculty, University of Islamic Sumatera Utara participated. The result shows that sounds of English borrowing lexicon convert into the typical Indonesian sounds. Consonant [t] at the end position of the stem in a cluster [nt] automatically dropped, like print > prin.  Sound [v] replaced by [f] in all of the distribution. The passive form of the borrowing follows the Indonesian passive pattern, indicated by prefix di-. The borrowing ones adapt the Indonesian prefix me- to convey transitive verb forms, with the allomorph /mem-, men, meղ/, like mem-prin ‘to print’. The nasal sounds emerge in allomorphs influenced by the initial sounds of the stems based on the point of articulation of the sounds confronted. Pages 79 to 93

Social networking is gaining prominence, and is increasingly being used in many businesses' daily operations, from start-ups to small, medium and large organisations. Very few empirical studies have been performed to assess the effect of the use of social media on organisational  performance and job performance. The purpose of this research is to explore the effect of social media characteristics on organisational  performance and job performance. The study  samples   were collected from 500 managers and supervisors of industrial companies which are listed in the ASE (Amman Stock Exchange). The PLS SEM analysis  proved that social media,  social media conversations, and social media connectedness have a positive and significant relationship with organisational performance. Whereas social media communities and social media openness have an insignificant relationship with organisational performance. The results regarding job performance indicate that openness, community and connectedness have a positive and significant relationship with job performance. Meanwhile social media conversation shows a negative relationship, where it does not significantly influence job performance. It was suggested that these industrial companies be managed to maintain and pay adequate attention to their social media platforms,  use them heavily to render customer support, and to promote and market their products and services so as to increase their performance.

The main purpose of this research is to enhance new knowledge for a better understanding of the most powerful dimensions of the m-commerce quality that influences consumer perception, developing theories based on existing and previous literature on m-commerce quality for online shopping purposes. This research concentrates more on the three-dimensions of the e-service quality framework that  better predict consumer behaviour on responding to SQ afforded by e-services. The outcome is assumed to increase awareness about the various country cultures in return for the diverse relevance of e-service quality characteristics. Data was collected after distribution of a survey to 386 staff and students at Jordan University (JU), customers were utilised to examine the study framework using SEM-PLS. The analysis outcomes revealed that two dimensions of information and system quality, namely content adequacy, and perceived website innovativeness respectively had a significant influence on customer perceived quality. Meanwhile, the dimension of service quality perceived risk has no significant effect related to customer perceived quality. Indeed, overall m-service quality is statistically associated significantly with customer behaviour. An additional investigation must take into consideration a diversity of product and service segments and/or other businesses to determine whether the measurement goes fairly well. In another business setting, the measurement may be required to be modified.  Research in the  future might also utilise various methodologies, for instance, interviews, focus groups, and observations.

Basel J. A. Alia, Mohammad Salem Oudatb, a,bAssistant Professor at Accounting and Finance Department, Applied Science University, Kingdom of Bahrain, Email: abasel.ali@asu.edu.bh,  basil8011@gmail.com

Risk management is on the rise every day in the banking industry due to the rising uncertain economic climate. Despite the growing role of banks in the country's growth, the governing bodies of these institutions face numerous risks. Risk management is perceived to be the secret to the success and failure of any financial institution. The study explores the effect of financial risk on the performance of listed banks in Bahrain and the relative value of the most popular types of risk. The research covers 11 of the 18 banks in Bahrain from 2014 to 2018. Based on the availability of data, data was collected from the Bahrain Stock Exchange Database. Alternatively, the most common metrics, ROA, was used for bank performance and risk measures. Four forms of financial risk have been used, namely capital risk, exchange rate risk, liquidity risk and operating risk. Regression analysis reveals that there is an insignificant relationship between bank performance, exchange rate risk, liquidity risk and operating risk. The findings also indicate an important positive relationship between bank performance and capital risk. In addition, the findings indicate that capital risk is the most significant form of risk. The research advises that attention be paid to operational risk, which is primarily related to uncertainty about the earnings of a financial company due to computer system failures, mistakes, abuse by staff, or risk of loss due to unforeseen operating expenses.

Azmanc, Septian Aji Permanad, a,bFaculty of Engineering Technolgy, Pagoh Campus, UTHM, 84600, Muar, Johor, Malaysia, cFaculty of Technical and Vocational Education, UPSI, 35900, Tanjung Malim, Perak, Malaysia, dUniversitas PGRI Yogyakarta, Indonesia, Email: b*mnazhari@ftv.upsi.edy.my

Post Occupancy Evaluation (POE) is an activity of the building evaluation process with a focus on quality, operational performance and satisfaction of the occupants. The POE is essential to evaluate completed and occupied buildings to identify weaknesses and potential for future improvement. To date, there have been various variations of POE instruments and tools for assessing occupied buildings, particularly POE for residential buildings such as POE for public housing, POE for low-cost housing and POE for student residential colleges. However, the POE instrument for assessing high-rise housing constructed using the industrialised building system (IBS) method has not explicitly developed. In this regard, this study aims to discuss the construction of an effective POE instrument to measure the quality and performance of high-rise housing built using the IBS method. For this purpose, the three-round of Delphi method adapted by involving 15 experts selected based on their background and experience related to IBS. The results of the third round of Delphi found that 33 out of all sub-constructs are dropped because of low mean scores (<4.2 in two rounds) while 75 sub-constructs identified as final items. The results of the Delphi study also found that all ten constructs are 1) Spatial; 2) Design and aesthetics; 3) Physical; 4) Building materials; 5) Quality of work; 6) Comfort and well-being; 7) Environment and health; 8) Maintenance; 9) Value and 10) Cost are the most significant construct for developing POE instruments. Therefore, an effective Post-Occupancy Evaluation instrument for measuring the quality, performance and value of a home built using the IBS method should include all of these ten component constructs.

Objectives: Early stages of chronic kidney disease may have no symptoms; therefore, the identification and treatment of these manifestations early possibly help in preventing a transition into kidney failure and subsequently prevent the risks of progression. This study aimed at exploring the experience of self-management conducted by patients with early stages of chronic kidney disease (CKD). A descriptive phenomenological qualitative design was used, which required the recruitment of fifteen participants, using a purposive sampling technique. Furthermore, the data collection instruments employed consisted of in-depth interviews, field notes, and tape recordings. In addition, interview guidelines were prepared based on the objectives of the research which were further translated into a number of questions, to explore the experiences of patients, and the Colaizzi method was applied in data analysis. The results characterised the decisions to perform self-management, dealing with a health condition and social support as important aspects. This study identified several themes in the experiences of patients with decreased kidney function, suggesting that patients distinguish factors that facilitate and inhibit self-management, acknowledging its characteristics and readiness.

This article studies e-learning possibilities and extra teaching skills needed to be developed in the industrial revolution 4.0 since online educational programs are made for easy use. It provides a brief review of ancient learning from the philosophical perspective of some countries. The authors believe that cognitive competence should be developed because the e-learning system is like eye-catching candy and digital era where almost everything is under fingertip in comparison with the past education system where students had to attend lessons. The research question is to test if e-learning environments develop students' cognitive competence. A goal of this study is to identify a method to implement e-learning environments well to develop students' cognitive competence and to achieve learning outcomes of students in higher education.

Ibnu Siswantoa*, Mingchang Wub, Chenju Koc, aUniversitas Negeri Yogyakarta, Indonesia, bNational Yunlin University of Science and Technology, Taiwan, ROC, cNational Taichung University of Science and Technology, Taiwan, ROC, Email: a*ibnusiswanto@uny.ac.id

Both imagination and affective creativity were identified to instigate individuals' creative thinking separately. However, the interaction effect of these factors may overwhelm their single-factor effects while simultaneously occurring. This study purports to validate the moderating effects of affective creativity on the influential power of imagination to creative thinking. Validated instruments were employed to examine the performance of 402 students in the National Yunlin University of Science and Technology (NYUST), Taiwan. Taking a moderation model analysis, this study revealed that students' affective creativity and imagination individually created a single-factor effect on their creative thinking; their interaction effect occurred and dominated the effects. The effective creativity moderated the impact of imagination on creative thinking: that is, students with average and higher levels of effective creativity would possess better creative thinking according to their imagination. Conversely, for the student with a low level of affective creativity, their imagination could not inspire creative thinking. These findings further clarified the factor effects on and influential approaches to youngsters' creative thinking development. Pages 371 to 389

A New Theory of Cybercrime: A Comparative Study between Jordanian and French Law

Alshible Mohamada, Abu Issa Hamzab, aAssociate Professor at Jadara University, Faculty of Law, bAssistant Professor at Applied Science University, Email: asoramohamad@yahoo.com,  bhamza_abuissa@msn.com

The theory of an attempt to commit a crime is one of the most important in criminal law. Traditionally, the legislator may adopt into the penal code a specific theory, when punishing the person who attempted to commit a crime. However, this approach may change in the face of cybercrime. This study deals with theories about attempts to commit cybercrime, by explaining provisions and penalties according to their types and conditions. It also compares Jordanian and French legislation, regarding such theories. The study concludes that there is somewhat of a difference between the two approaches. The Jordanian approach needs a comprehensive review, to provide an integrated framework for their legislators’ theory of attempt in cybercrime.Pages 405 to 423

Control over the Constitutionality of International Treaties (A comparative study)

Osama Ahmed Alnaimata, Khalid Khalaf Al-Droub, aAssociate Professor of Public Law Dean of the Faculty of Law, Philadelphia University, bAssistant Professor of Public Law Faculty of Law – Jadara University, Email: a*O_alnimat@philadelphia.edu.jo

International treaties are a source of Public International Law. Control over their constitutionality is of great importance. It is concerned with the protection of the supremacy of the constitution, and its priority over all other legal norms in the State, specifically its sanctity before international legislation. In addition, such control constitutes an impervious barrier to any encroachment on the sovereignty of a State, which may be prejudiced by certain international treaties, threaten its interests and prejudice its independence and sovereignty by some treaties it has concluded. Based on this, we will discuss constitutional control over international treaties, and highlight the positive or negative role of the Constitutional Council in France and the Constitutional Court in Jordan, and their role in protecting constitutional provisions. The main research problem lies in the supremacy of international treaties over the constitution and ordinary laws, and control of the extent of their constitutionality in maintaining constitutional supremacy.Pages 424 to 440

The Effects of Cultural Restraint on Social Media Motivation, Relationship Benefits, and Relationship Commitment among Young Adults in Jordan: A Conceptual Study

Islam Habis Mohammad Hatamleha, Izzal Asnira Zolkeplib, Jamilah HJ Ahmadc, a,b,cSchool of Communication, Universiti Sains Malaysia, 11800 Pulau Pinang, Malaysia, Email: aeslamx2011@gmail.com,  bizzalasnira@usm.my,  cjahmad.usm@gmail.com

Aim: This paper studies the effects of cultural restraint on social media motivation, relationship commitment, and relationship benefits among young adults in Jordan. Material and methods: This paper is based on a review of the literature and takes a conceptual approach. It suggests the framework for examining social media motivation, relationship benefits and trust among young Jordanian adults, while focusing on the moderating effects of cultural restraint on online relationship commitment. Findings: It was expected that the findings would build on the significance of integrating social media motivation, relationship benefits, cultural restraint, and online relationship commitment among young adults in Jordan, as social media appears to be the main element of dedication to online relationships. Implications: Due to Jordan’s social media engagement radically improving in recent years, it is urged that the impact of its motivation on relationship commitment is conducted, to prevent adverse effects. Young adults are the most important segment of society. Therefore, understanding the benefits and harms of their online relationship commitment to social media motivation is essential. Novelty: To date, no studies examine the effects of cultural restraint on social media motivation, relationship benefits, and relationship commitment among young adults in Jordan. Furthermore, this study will help university students understand their online relationship commitment, as to the benefits or harms of social media motivation.Pages 441 to 462

Legal Security and Administrative Judge: A Comparative Study between Jordanian and French Law

Osama Alnaimata, aDean of the Faculty of Law, Philadelphia University, Email: O_alnimat@philadelphia.edu.jo

This research sheds light on the principle of legal security as a contemporary legal concept.  It is an independent concept that includes many things, including the need to develop the quality of laws and administrative decisions and facilitate access to justice. In fact, the French experience is considered the pioneer in putting this principle into practice through the so-called principle of the necessity of facilitating access to the law. This research addresses the need for legal norms to be clear, understandable, not surprising to those involved and not subject to permanent change and alteration, whereas there is a minimum level of commitment to the principle of non-transformation of legal norms, taking into consideration not to fall into a deadly deadlock. This research also deals with the issue of legal security before the administrative judge in particular, where we find that this principle means the necessity of facilitating the procedures before the administrative judge and enforcing the provisions, especially in cases of an urgent nature. There is no doubt that there is a fundamental relationship between this principle and the principle of the ex post facto laws, which is one of the general principles. Pages 463 to 480

A Right to Fair Trial

Osama Alnaimata, aFaculty of Law, Philadelphia University, Email: aO_alnimat@philadelphia.edu.jo

This paper addresses the issue of the right to a fair trial. This right has become the standard of the Legal State. Numerous texts establish this concept, but fundamentally we find Article (6) of the European Convention on Human Rights, which provides for the right of every person to consider his case impartially and in public within a reasonable period of time. Access to justice is one of the pillars of this right: there is no respect for the individual if he is not able to bring cases before an honest judge who accepts his request and "strives" to accept his request. This is the responsibility of the state, the primary guarantor of access to justice. Our research addresses the basic judicial decisions that established this right, such as Golder's decision: The  court  should  be   impartial  and  independent,  and  judges should not be subject to any political or financial influences. We then address one of the issues of the right to a fair trial; the right of litigants to make judgments within a reasonable time. Equality must prevail between litigants on the one hand, and between litigants and the court on the other hand. This is called the equality in arms, that is, the litigants must have the same capabilities during the course of the procedures. This paper will also highlight the issue of application i.e.  how things work in practice. One might find that in a country like France, which is in the race in the field of law and legal democracy, so to speak, there are many problems and countless obstacles to applying the principle of the right to a fair trial, whether in the matter of access to justice, delay in issuing judgments or even equality in arms. This was confirmed by the rules of the Jordanian constitution and various legislations in force. Pages 481 to 497

The Legal Adjustment for COVID19 Transmission Crimes in Jordanian Law

Ali Jabbar Saliha, Alshible Mohamadb, aDean of the Faculty of Law. Jadara University – Jordan, bFaculty of Law. Jadara University – Jordan, Email: adr_alijabbar@yahoo.com, bsoramohamad@yahoo.com

The seriousness of the pandemic of Corona Virus (COVID19) lies in its rapid and ease of spread. Therefore, all international and national bodies and institutions at various levels have taken all possible measures to prevent their spread. From a criminal point of view, national legislation, whether in the Penal Code or the Public Health Law, often provides for the transmission of infection with a disease or an epidemic as a crime against public health. By examining the approach of the Jordanian legislator, it was found that as epidemic crimes stipulated in Public Health Law No. 47/2008, the penalties stipulated in this law are not commensurate with the seriousness of criminal acts, especially for intentional crimes. However, this law states that any more severe punishment can be applied in any other law. Here it can be said that the Penal Code is applicable upon these crimes, but it did not stipulate these crimes as they are in the Public Health Law. Therefore, the question arises about the extent to which the provisions of the crime of murder and harm in the Penal Code are applied to these crimes if their penalty is more severe than that stipulated in the Public Health Law. So, if the act constitutes a murder (according to the free mold) or the harm crime because the penalty is more severe than that stipulated in the Public Health Law, the Penal Code will be the applicable law, not the Public Health Law.

The form of protection provided by the state through the Law No. 13 of 2016 concerning Patent towards the Defense and Security Equipment (DSE) related to the state defence and security, explicitly and implicitly regulates the Government's role to execute its patent in Indonesia under the consideration of "related to the state defence and security" as defined in the Article 109 of the Patent law Paragraph 1 alphabet A. Since the implementation of patent by the government with respect to the state defence and security, the patent holder 'cannot' use its exclusive rights. Indonesia needs patent management hosted under the Ministry of Defense, as practised in China and South Korea, in order to keep the confidentiality of DSE as a patent object and to provide moral and economic protection towards the inventor of DSE as a patent, since the government has taken the ownership of DSE's patent.

Khaled Ahmed Abdel-Al Ibrahima, aAssistant Professor of Educational Psychology College of Education - Prince Sattam bin Abdulaziz University, Email: aka.ibrahim@psau.edu.sa

The study aims to reveal the effect of training on critical thinking skills in developing meta-comprehension judgments among middle school students in Al-Kharj Governorate, and to determine whether the effectiveness of training differs across the genders. To achieve these goals, the author designed a training program based on critical thinking skills consisting of a total of 30 activities. The sample consisted of 117 male and female students from the first class of a middle school at Al-Kharj governorate, whose ages ranged between 13-14 years. Two schools were randomly chosen, one male and one female. Two classes from each selected school were also chosen again randomly. One of the two classes in each school was chosen to be an experimental group, and the other was a control one.  The results showed that there are statistically significant differences between the mean of the responses of the experimental group and the control group in the meta-comprehension judgments based on individual experience and judgments based on performance expectations in favour of the experimental group. The results also indicated that the training program is highly effective in developing meta-comprehension judgments and that there are no statistically significant differences between the means of male and female responses in developing meta-comprehension judgments based on the experience of the individual. At the same time, there were differences between the means of male and female responses in developing meta-comprehension judgments, which is a statistical indication of judgments based on performance expectations for females.

Muhammad Nur Haniff Mohd Noora, Rokiah Kadirb, Suriyani Muhamadc, a,b,cFaculty of Business, Economics and Social Development, Universiti Malaysia Terengganu

Illegal logging has become an issue of global importance. Efforts to achieve sustainable forest management can be hindered by illegal logging activities. The negative impacts of illegal logging are significant on the environment, economy and forest-dependent communities. This conceptual paper examines the causes of illegal logging and identifies an appropriate policy response to overcome the issue. The paper is written based on extensive reviews of illegal logging-related articles published by global forestry organisations. The factors involved in illegal logging are examined with reference to motives, means and opportunities that can result in the occurrences of illegal logging. The findings identify factors relating to bureaucratic issues, demand for logs, corruption, violation of forestry law, and document falsification amongst the causes of the offences. The paper provides input in understanding how illegal logging takes place and how to control or reduce the problem through legislative and other approaches. Pages 608 to 620

Rina Astinia, Erwin Panigorob, a,bManagement Doctoral Program, Post Graduate, Mercubuana University, Jakarta, Email: arina_astini@mercubuana.ac.id,  berwin.agustian@student.mercubuana.ac.id

The trend of online advertising is increasingly in demand by business personnel, along with the growing development of internet technology this form of advertising provides wide opportunities for all users to interact with each other. The advancement of internet technology allows advertisers to design advertisements with unique features that can help attract consumers' visual attention, forcing consumers to see advertisements with the aim of influencing their psychological conditions such as attitudes and emotions. Advertisers monitor the behaviour of people and use their information to manage the information they obtain to target their advertisements accurately to potential customers with the method of advertisement impressions provided by daring channels. This phenomenon is called daring behaviour advertising (OBA). This study found a process that connects consumer awareness and knowledge about daring behaviour advertising with their attitude towards daring behaviour advertising, especially on YouTube ads, which shows that there is a feeling of annoyance from the consumer's side when exposed to these advertisements. The feeling of being disturbed does not change the image of the product to the consumer but has an impact on consumers' reluctance to recommend the product to others. Pages 636 to 648

For this objective, the data was collected from 450 middle managers by using s stratified sampling technique which yielded a 75 per cent response rate. The SEM analysis of the study has shown that internal integration (INI) and supplier integration (SUI) have a positive and significant integration along with the FP, while customer integration (CUI) does not have a significant relationship with the FP. The indirect effect findings have shown that internal control (INTC) significantly moderates the relationship of INI and SUI, whereas it does not significantly moderate the relationship of CUI and FP. These findings indicate that INTC is an essential variable because it significantly moderates most of the SCI indicators and FP. Therefore, this moderating effect is considered to a big contribution of this study that could become a new area of future research. Pages 711 to 733

This would ensure customer search and guarantee cost decrease and returns through the integration of confirmed costs and registration cosst and the cost of control and accounting revenue. Iin addition to the integration of the target costs and activities costs to plan and design products and analyse activities to ensure re-engineering value, cost development, analysis, assessment and correlation with contenders to arrive at cost and greatness of individual management strategies that define the value chain of products that the customer is satisfied with and will search for in the future. Therefore, we recommend that industrial companies should concentrate on execution quality to ensure the company's competitive advantage under competition strategies through the value chain achieved by the customer. Industrial companies should refresh the incorporation of cost of the board instruments to give creation prerequisites, item arranging and configuration, diminish costs, and assess items and contrast them with contenders.

Toto Rusmantoa*, Agitha Juniaty Pasallib, a,bDepartment of Accounting, Faculty of Economics and Communications, Bina Nusantara University, Indonesia, Email: a*trusmanto@binus.edu

The purpose of this study is to examine the effect of ownership structure, leverage, firm size and audit quality on earnings management. This study used the discretionary accruals of the Jones model in calculating earnings management. Fourteen companies in the consumer goods industry sector listed on the Indonesia Stock Exchange during 2013-2017 were used as samples in this study. The samples selected were based on certain criteria and the data analysis was done using the SPSS version 23 . Multiple regression testing is used to test the hypothesis such as the Classical Assumption Test (Normality Test, Multicollinearity Test, Heteroscedasticity Test, and Autocorrelation Test), Multiple Linear Regression Analysis and Hypothesis Test (t-Test, f-Test, and Determination Coefficient Test). The results of this study indicate that ownership structures (managerial ownership and institutional ownership) and leverage have no significant effect on earnings management. In contrast, firm size and audit quality have a significant effect on earnings management. Pages 795 to 808

Dynamics of Innovation in the Informal Settings

Oluseye Oladayo Jegedea, aDHET-NRF South African Research Chair in Entrepreneurship Education, College of Business and Economics, University of Johannesburg, South Africa, Email: aoluseyej@uj.ac.za

Using first-hand data collection from enterprises in the informal sector and their stakeholders, this study argues that enterprises in the informal sector are innovative however their innovation activities follow a different undercurrent. The study puts forward that indicators for capturing innovation activities as well as the actors involved in innovation activities are very different from those identified in the literature as informed by the Frascati and Oslo manuals used for capturing innovation and innovation activities. Also, the nature of the relationship among the actors and stakeholders in the innovation system follows a soft (informal) approach. These alternative patterns include learning by doing, using, interacting, imitating, producing and searching for business innovation. The study also advanced the importance of tacit knowledge acquired through on-the-job learning, the traditional apprenticeship system, indigenous knowledge system, amongst others. Finally, the study identified a high prevalence of innovation in the informal sector in Nigeria. Pages 809 to 828

Protecting the Marginal: Innovative Policy for Indonesia's Isolated Indigenous Communities

Moh. Dahlana*, Irwan Abdullahb, Sirajuddinc, M.Nasrond, Imam Mahdie, Intan Permata Sarif, Saepuding, a,c,d,e,f,gState Institute of Islamic Studies (IAIN) Bengkulu, Indonesia, bGadjah Mada University Yogyakarta, Indonesia, Email: a*dahlanbkl20@gmail.com

This study depicts the objective conditions of Indonesia's isolated communities, who live in precarity, poverty, and desolation. Their interests as indigenous people are ignored as their community is perceived as a security threat. At the same time, globalisation has incorporated them into the 'global village', subjecting them to the systems, policies, and influences of other countries. This has threatened the security and sovereignty of the state, as the blurring of geographic, social, and cultural boundaries has undermined nationalism. This study seeks to map the structural positioning of traditional communities and their potential to promote change through innovative policy. Humanist and welfare-oriented policies will transform indigenous communities from objects of development into beneficiaries. This article recommends the implementation of innovative people-oriented policies that position indigenous communities as policy subjects. In this manner, development will not only serve to improve communities' economic welfare but also to recognise the dignity and rights of indigenous communities. Pages 848 to 862

Entrepreneurship development is highly pivotal to economic growth. Therefore, higher education institutions are continuing to upgrade entrepreneurship education (EE), and entrepreneurship research has rapidly grown in recent years. However, open educational resources, such as open access academic publishers have not yet acknowledged EE could have an exclusive outlet for publication. Therefore, although rapidly growing in numbers, the scholars of EE are having only one Scopus indexed journal that is specifically focused in this domain. Therefore, based on these wide gaps, a bibliometric analysis has been done in the broader research domain of entrepreneurship to understand its growing importance. Accordingly, the implications are given to the publishers. Pages 863 to 879

Should the Modern Idea of Individual Autonomy Continue to Influence Understandings about the Goal of Education? A Critical Discussion with Reference to Paulo Freire’s Critical Pedagogy

Sherwan T. Ameena, aResearcher at Research Center Nawroz University, Kurdistan region, Duhok, Iraq

Lately there has been renewed interest in the idea of individual autonomy in this ever-changeable world. The modern societies that believe in pluralist and democratic life influence economic and social life by considering individual autonomy. This means giving freedom of choices to children and considering their abilities to choose and follow their conception of life that they hope to be suitable for themselves in ‘flourishing conditions’ Kant (1784). This perspective has not only been the view of liberal societies but many conservative societies as well. For societies that do not consider individual autonomy, it will be hard to continue towards their desire of reaching flourishing conditions. Dearden believes education is the key to ensure individuals gain individual autonomy. Thus, the modern idea of individual autonomy in the enlightenment time of Immanuel Kant until the present time influences several societies and especially education. A much-debated question is whether it should be applied in the education system. In this paper, I will argue that people can have autonomy yet additionally they need a critical realisation to request and alter exploitive conditions. I will discuss that a critical pedagogy as defined by Freire (1972) and modernised by Giroux (2004), is what is needed within modern education. I start by defining Freire’s (1972) proposal of critical pedagogy as a mean for social alteration and equality in education by giving an alternative to the ‘banking concept’ of education and will relate it to my professional context as an English speaker for other languages (ESOL) teacher from Iraq.

This research investigates counterterrorism and human rights violations in Nigeria. It examines the types and the contributing factors of human rights abuses, as a result of Boko Haram activities and the Nigerian counterterrorism initiatives undertaken by security agencies. Employing both secondary and primary data, this study adopts the qualitative research approach. Semi-structured interview questions were used on a total number of 29 informants, selected purposively. This study reveals evidence of human rights violations in the conduct of the Nigerian counterterrorism operatives, which also breaches the United Nation’s counterterrorism standards. The findings also show that the lack of human security conditions, corruption, inadequate training, and attitudes of the local communities have contributed to violations of human rights. This research postulates that to reduce human rights violations during counterterrorism activities, there is a need to incorporate non-military approaches and confident building measures to gain the support of the people.

The purpose of this study is the implementation of supervision as an important activity in the administration of education. Supervision is intended as a control activity for all educational activities to direct, supervise, foster and control the achievement of Islamic religious goals and objectives. So the quality of education can lead to a better direction. This type of qualitative research was a descriptive approach. Data collection methods used were observation, documentation and free (non-structured) interviews. The analysis technique in this study uses the analytic deduction approach according to Milles and Habermen's theory. The results of the study and the implementation of collegial supervision by supervisors has not been maximised because only one supervisor has had to face such vast field realities both in the area of guidance and the number of teachers that must be guided. However, according to teachers the supervision provided was very helpful to the teachers in developing their pedagogical competencies. Many school principals are stuttering with education technology and supervision systems so that the supervision process is still not maximised. The success of supervision carried out by supervisors and school principals has made the pedagogical competence of teachers good but it still needs to be improved. The ideal obstacles in implementing collegial supervision are categorised in two aspects, namely structure and culture. Pages 948 to 961

Identity Movements, Religious Organisations and Social Harmony in North Sumatra

Muryanto Amina*, Muhammad Arifin Nasutionb, a,bFaculty of Social and Political Sciences, Universitas Sumatra Utara, Medan, North Sumatra, 20155, Indonesia, Email: a*muryantoamin@usu.ac.id

This article aims to analyse the roles of religious organisations in political participation and the electoral patterns through a case study of two elections in North Sumatra; the 2018 Governor election and 2019 Presidential election. The authors approached the research qualitatively using critical network analysis to explain the values system and political motivations of religious organisations. Religious leaders influenced the level of religious activism and radicalism through various activities. Social harmony played an important role in preventing activism and radicalism, albeit in ways difficult to predict. The findings provide a deeper understanding of how the religious identity movement through religious organisations increased, while at the same time, the social interest in politics decreased. This study contributes to analysing the relationship between religious organisations' roles and the influence of social harmony on political participation, innovatively and systematically, and can be used as a reference in managing subsequent elections.

The purpose of this study is to target middle-aged Korean people aged 40 to 64 to categorise basic job competency and to identify the connection with vocational education, job-seeking skills, and career transition status. To this end, the data from Lee SooJeong et al., (2020), targetting middle-aged people aged 40 to 64 who had the will to find a job (change jobs) was used. The quota sampling method by profession, gender, and age was used and the data collection was conducted for a month in February 2020. The collected data was used for a total of 1,224 analyses through the data cleaning process. First, the basic job competency of middle-aged people in Korea has divided into three groups. Second, a total of 579 (47.3%) people belonged to the 'high-ranking group' of basic job competency. People perceived to be in good health in this case are incumbents, managers/experts, paid workers (regular workers), college graduates, or higher, living in a large city, and in middle-class economic conditions. Third, 496 (40.5%) people belonged to the ‘mid-ranking group’ of basic job competency. There were many paid workers (regular workers) in other professions and they were in low-class economic conditions with normal health conditions: they had the characteristics of the moderate degree between the high-ranking and low-ranking groups. Fourth, 149 (12.2%) people belonged to the ‘low-ranking group’ of basic job competency. There were many unemployed and temporary or daily workers, both economic and health conditions are low, and material status is also unstable, unlike other groups. Pages 1007 to 1022

Objective: To conduct a theoretical and literary review of the readiness for change at the individual and organisational level by identifying limitations in prior research that is not a stratified analysis of the perceptions of profit/loss as antecedents of the readiness for change. Design/Methodology/Approach: Based on a systematic review of the literature, this paper develops antecedents using four key elements: readiness for change, organisational, employee or individual, and limits only to the fields of business, management and accounting with the limited article search period in 2010-2019, we obtained 35 articles in accordance with readiness for change. Limitation/Scope: This literature review focusses on research on antecedents that affect readiness for change only at the individual and organisational level, because from the reviews conducted there was no group readiness found, namely the antecedent of individual/ collective character,  context (internal and external), process, and perceived benefit/harm. Benefits/Implications: A review is conducted to assist researchers on the readiness of changes in determining antecedents by identifying the variables to be selected. Besides, the review conducted can provide benefits for researchers to help provide decisions in researching by replicating existing variables or finding new variables. Novelty/Value: Provides a review for future researchers to consider the antecedents of readiness for change at the individual level and at the organisational level in the developing countries in ASIA, especially the perception of profit/loss as an antecedent for readiness for change.

The speech, as a physical structure of the encoded fabric, is launched, on a communicative intent, between its product and then swinging between its recipients in an endless interpretive game based on the phenomenological text. The text as a semiotic system is based on the relational of its formal elements as well as colour and its referral meanings with a generative approach based on the plurality of meaning that has become under the authority of language. The text has been edited in the arts of modernity and its aftermath to be captive to it. According to the communicative deliberations, those begin to address the relationship of both the producer, the textual text, and the reader together. The signs move within the framework of their users. The meaning gives up its historical centrality, as a foundational axis for building the text. The formative icon resolves its differential and coalition relations in the body of the rhetoric that must be in place, and gives the recipient the first initiative Interpretive model building semantic proposed by the artist, Fimars discourse to do with the impressionist receiver, which in turn interact with the proposed discourse of cultural orientation, as it is not the role of the plastic mark in reporting, but are effective communication, and toward a renewed Tdoual variable. Since surreal art is based on formal structures escaped from the dominance and centralisation of the mind, towards distinctiveness stemming from a feeling of ambiguity and existential anxiety, which removed the reality of the form towards irrationality and incomprehensibility, so this art was not without the circulation of my signs of its instinctive forms.Pages 1078 to 1094

The Effect of Quality Assessment of Knowledge Sharing Behaviour in Convention Attendees: The Mediating Role of Affective Commitment

Research in regard to knowledge sharing behaviour in convention attendees, as well as its efficiency, is currently limited. Despite that, knowledge sharing is utilised as a means of encouraging decision making and practice based on evidence as well as promoting the exchange of knowledge among researchers. Hence, for a deep comprehension of international convention attendees' knowledge sharing behaviour as well as related influencing factors, a conceptual research framework is proposed in this study. The basis of this framework is the theory of a planned behaviour model which includes social network, self-congruity, efficiency and personal branding in affective commitment in the direction of knowledge sharing behaviour. In 2018, a survey was carried out among the attendants of 8 international conventions in Malaysia, containing 275 samples. In addition, an empirical test was performed on the research model and hypothesised relationships. This was done via the structural equation modelling (SEM) approach which is supported by version 3.0 of the Smart PLS software. The findings of this study demonstrate that affective commitment acts as a mediator conceptualised in relationships among social network, self-congruity, efficiency, personal branding and knowledge sharing behaviour. Moreover, according to the results, the relationships between social network, self-congruity, efficiency and personal branding are impacted significantly and directly as well as particularly and indirectly by the mediating variable. Therefore, this study presents brilliant ideas and an improved comprehension in regard to the significance of encouraging international convention attendees to contribute further to practices concerning knowledge sharing behaviour.

Champasak: Dhammayuttika Nikaya and the Maintenance of Power of the Thai State (Buddhist Decade 2390-2450)

Kiattisak Bangpernga, aDepartment of Sociology and Anthropology Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, Mahasarakham University, Email: akiattisak.b@hotmail.com

This article is intended to analyse the time during Siam's reign in Champasak, when Siam exercised the colonial power to collect tributes and taxes, resulting in the local Lao’s burdens. This caused rebels to be formed under the culture of local Buddhists combined with indigenous beliefs. Siam therefore attempted to connect the local Lao and culture to the central power. One of the important policies was to send Thammayut monks to remove the local beliefs and to disseminate pure Buddhism, according to Thai Dhammayuttika Nikaya. Later, French colonies wanted to rule the Lao territory in the name of Indochina, resulting in that the monks of Dhammayuttika Nikaya were drawn to be part of the political mechanism, in order to cultivate loyalty in the Siamese elites and spread the Thai ideology. This aimed to separate Laos from the French’s claiming of legitimacy for a colonial rule. However, even if the Dhammayuttika Nikaya was accepted and supported by the Lao rulers, but it was not generally accepted by the local people, because it was the symbol of the power of Siam who oppressed them, and appeared to have ideological differences with their local culture. Dhammayuttika Nikaya, as a state mechanism, was not successful in maintaining the power of the Thai state. Pages 1158 to 1174

The resource pool is a model that helps to meet water needs in rice farming. Each production factor has incentives and risks based on the value of resources. The research objective is to value the production factors used on a rice farm. The research method used to achieve this includes a case study on a group of rice farmers around the edge of Tempe Lake. Financial analysis is also used as a basis for valuing the resources incorporated into rice farming. Farmers as owners of labour, capital and skills have a higher benefit and risk, followed by land owners and providers of irrigation services. Risks faced by landowners include the opportunity cost of land, rent and high land values. The risk for irrigation service providers is the total operational costs and the depreciation of equipment, which is equivalent to land rent. Break Event Point (BEP) productivity is inversely proportional to business risks and incentives. BEP for productivity is 1.8 for farmers, 2.37 for land owners, and 2.27 for irrigation service providers.

The aim of the current study is to examine the effect of supply chain finance (SCF) on the financial performance (FP) of the pharmaceutical industry of Indonesia. For this purpose, data was collected from 2009 to 2018 when the pharmaceutical industry has made a positive recovery after the global financial crisis. With the objective of examining the non-linear impact of SCF on the performance of the pharmaceutical industry of Indonesia, the model was analyses by employing the Pooled regression (POLS), fixed effects model (FEM) and random effects model (REM). Regression analysis is performed to address potential endogeneity, heteroskedasticity, and autocorrelation issues. The key findings of the study have shown that that SCF exerts a U-shaped non-linear impact on the performance, so the optimal threshold in the impact can be defined by the minimum of CCC*. In addition, the paper reveals that FP is significantly related to firm-specific variables like firm size (SIZE) and capital structure (CAP) and other macroeconomic (economic growth (EG)) determinants. In short, SCF does not frequently exert a positive impact on how its participants perform. Their restructuring occurred by the lowest threshold (CCC*) this makes this correlation under go considerably large changes. Therefore, this empirical evidence is essential in giving the management and scholars a comprehensive perspective on the relationship between SCF and FP. Pages 1203 to 1216

The Effectiveness of the MAIL (Math Assessment, Instruction, Learning) Cycle in Mathematics Achievement and Reflective Thinking among Intermediate Third Grade Students

A.S.D. Basim Mahammad Jasim Al- Dulaimya, aUniversity of Baghdad - College of Education for pure Science\ Ibn AlHaitham, Email: aDr.basim.math@gmail.com

The aim of the research is to identify the effectiveness of a modern teaching model based on constructivist learning represented in the course (evaluation, teaching and learning in mathematics) in increasing mathematical achievement and developing contemplative thinking skills for the selected group of intermediate third grade students. In order to achieve the research goals, the researcher used the experimental approach with two groups (experimental and control), by applying two tests in mathematical achievement before and after, as well as  using the meditative thinking scale for the same purpose. The research sample consisted of 60 students from the third intermediate grade, where the research sample was divided into two equal groups. The control group studied the subjects in the usual way, and the experimental group studied using the MAIL evaluation course. The experiment was applied in the second semester of the academic year 2018/2019. The researcher taught the two research groups. The experimental group was taught according to the six stages of the evaluation cycle, teaching and learning in mathematics MAIL (Preparation and participation-Deriving previous knowledge- Sounding and discovery-Development Concept and skill-transfer of concept and skill-self-evaluation and reflection), and the control group  studied according to the usual method. The achievement test and the meditative thinking scale were applied to the research groups before and after test. To test the validity of the assumptions, data was collected and then statistically analysed using appropriate statistical means, the most important of which are the arithmetic averages and the standard deviations of the two groups ’scores to determine the statistical differences between the two groups. The results of the research revealed the effectiveness of the MAIL evaluation and teaching course in increasing students' achievements in mathematics and raising their level of contemplative thinking compared to the usual way.  In light of the results of the research,  several recommendations are suggested, the most important of which is to highlight the course of evaluation, teaching and learning in mathematics (MAIL), and to increase awareness of it, as  according to the researcher’s knowledge,  it has not been applied in the Arab environment prior to this research. It would also be useful to apply the stages of the evaluation course, teaching and learning in mathematics MAIL in maths classes, as it combines several strategies for constructivist learning within all stages and through all school stages.

Financial performance is important for banks. Determinant financial performance remains a concern for bank management. This study examined how good corporate governance, independent boards, and company size can improve financial performance. This study also examined capital structure in the relationship framework. A total of 30 banks reporting on the Indonesian Stock Exchange were a sample, observed between 2015-2018. Path analysis tested the hypothesis. The test results show that good corporate governance does not affect financial performance, while independent boards and company size have a positive effect on financial performance. The capital structure also mediates the influence of independent board and bank size on financial performance. Further, this study provides empirical evidence that capital structure is directly proportional to bank financial performance in this digitalization era. The implication is banks must pay more attention to the supervising, independent board structure, to  improve the operational performance and financial performance of companies. An increase in the size of bank assets can increase financial performance, thereby increasing the bank's operational performance. Pages 1315 to 1326

One way to produce graduates with good quality is by increasing the quality of learning. The learning process must be able to produce the competencies required in the current era, which is needed for the business and the industrial world (DUDI). Particularly, Vocational High Schools are in high need of graduates who have a good level of critical thinking, creative thinking, communication, collaboration and confidence, as well as the capability to solve problems independently. Learning process in Vocational High Schools is expected to have used Higher Order Thinking Skill (HOTS) based learning since it can help train and stimulate student's abilities to solve the problems given in the learning process independently. Based on the field activity findings, which was done by taking a sample of 15 schools using a purposive sampling method. There have been several teachers who applied learning method but still experienced errors in applying the HOTS based learning evaluation process. The pre-test results showed that 49.30% of teachers still did poorly in the application of HOTS learning in the classroom. After the treatment, which was proper and correct HOTS based learning, the post-test result showed an improvement that was only 4.23% of teachers who still did poorly in the application of HOTS based learning. Through the significant changes during the training, the teacher began to understand the details of HOTS based learning evaluation system so that they can apply it in the teaching and learning process and produce graduates required by HOTS learning itself, which is to produce students or graduates who are capable of thinking creatively, innovatively and independently and can solve problems well.

Designing e-learning environments for quality professional education through excellence human resources is a challenge for education designers, as the continuing practice of simply moving courses online can be surprisingly disabling. We argue that as universities strive to educate for excellence in professional practice, design approaches for the e-learning components must be conceptualised in a broader view of a contemporary learning environment involving integrated virtual dimensions. Our paper aims to provide more flexible, immediate and evolving virtual experiences, and test the relationship between the excellence human resources and e-Learning at the Al-Mamoon University College.  The Education Studies Online project newsroom simulation project exemplified elements of the approach  recommended in addressing the challenges of quality professional education. We highlight the generative role of the education designer in adopting an integrative and strategic stance when creating such environments. Implications for the selection and use of various e-Learning resources and corporate e-learning systems becomes evident as we highlight the role of excellence human resources management for instructional industrialism allowing courses to “move online”. The analytical descriptive approach was adopted in analysing the research problem. The research was conducted on an available sample of 78 members. The research recommended a set of recommendations, from these, to increase the utilisation of available and effective excellence human resources that will make future changes in e-learning support.

In this paper, a materiality-based approach for analysing film narratives through costumes is examined. Indian film director Shyam Benegal's Hindi film Junoon (1979) is pursued crystallising costume as a significant feature for reading the movie. The article argues that costumes, on a symbolic level, work as agents. It thus focuses on the interdependence between costume and interpretations of the screenplay's main character. A theoretical notion of costumes and materiality are explored, and the idea is further developed in relation to stylistics constituted as emotions materialised in costume. As costumes are the main object for analysis, the discussion immediately centres on costumes made for the moment: for a specific narrative and aesthetic expression. In this study, we make a semiotic analysis of costumes and how they express the user's socio-cultural attributes. We demonstrate the phenomenal role that costume as a form of communication plays within the cultural and social society, specifically in period films. This paper makes use of semiotic theory and film analysis through qualitative methodology in order to analyse Junoon directed by Shyam Benegal. This form of analysis will allow costume a distinct voice in words dominated film. It reinforces costume as communication through motifs, lines, shape, colour, fabric and texture. This work has been able to create a semiotics distinction of costumes in films using the socio-cultural and conventional interpretations of colours, fabrics, styles and textures of clothes and accessories. It has attempted to understand how colours, fabrics and textures convey meaning in the film. We discover that costume aids us to form individual opinions about characters and at the same time reconstruct their socio-cultural realities. In this study, Junoon is read through a theoretical framework deeply rooted in theatrical and film costumes, and a comprehensive methodology that focuses on the application of Roland Barthes 5th Code i.e Cultural Code is evaluated as the intervening mediations between interpretation and meaning of colours, lines, fabrics, textures, and styles of costumes in Junoon is unravelled with historical reference.

Tuberculosis (TB) remains a health problem globally. Not one country is free from it. In 1993, the World Health Organisation declared TB a “Global Emergency”, because the situation is worsening particularly for 22 “high burden” countries. Directly Observed Treatment Short-course has proven effective at controlling TB, yet the societal TB burden is still high. There have been many improvements since 2003. However, there are still 9.5 million TB new cases, causing approximately 0.5% of deaths in the world (WHO, 2009). Additionally, around 75% of TB patients are of an economically productive age (in the age group 15-55). This research investigated factors affecting non-compliance as to medication in lung TB sufferers in the work area of Community Health Centre Timika, Mimika Regency in 2017. A cross-sectional study approach was used. The sample was 78 TB sufferers who followed medication at the centre. The data analysis used the statistic test of lambda correlation coefficients. Based on the characteristics of the respondents, the variable of the group at the age of 31-45 was 46.15%; the male percentage showed 52.56%. No-school graduation was 30.77%, whereas unemployment was 47.44%, and family income lower than the regional minimum wage was 91.1%. Bivariate analysis showed some factors affecting the non-compliance medication of lung tuberculosis sufferers. Those factors were related to treatment observers (p: 0.00), health talk (p:0.00), knowledge (p:0.00), attitude (p:0.00), action (p:0.00), distance from house to the community centre (p:0.00), transport availability (p:0.00), and travel expenses (p:0.00). Moreover, multivariate analysis showed that the most affecting factor was knowledge (significant value 0.02), and action (significant value 0.05). So, it can be concluded that the factors affecting non-compliance medication in lung tuberculosis suffers, were treatment observers, health talk, patients’ knowledge, patients’ actions, distance from patients’ house to the centre, transport availability, and travel expenses. The most affecting factors were knowledge and action. Suggestions are made for the lung TB program officers at the centre to do health talks, use a family approach to lung TB noncompliant patients, and to activate treatment observers.

Most  universities provide undergraduate students with capstone courses, in particular internships or industrial training courses, where the student links  theories with practice and experiences  working life i prior to  graduating. The Applied Science University - Bahrain (ASU) recognised the importance of internship courses at  an early stage, and all undergraduate programmes in ASU featured an internship course in their programme curricula.  After completing prerequisite courses, students at the Applied Science University -Bahrain (ASU) register for the internship program, which is considered one of the graduation requirements in any department. Then they are required to get connected with their supervisors until the final assessment. This study aims to design an information system that computerises the whole process and makes it more accessible. This system will provide advantages to students, their supervisors and other parties involved in the process. Qualitative data are collected by conducting many interviews with different parties to focus on the main requirements of the system. The research flows starts from requirements analysis then moves on to designing interfaces for implementation. The system is based on four major components, namely academic supervisor, intern students, head of the unit, and secretary. The information system contains many features that facilitate coordination to implement the internship program. This system is integrated with the database system that assists supervisors to monitor and manage the applications of their students. One of the key functions of this system is that it reduces  effort and wastage of time. Thus, in a general aspect, this system will benefit not only the students but also all those participating in this process. Pages 1496 to 1518

Amal Ali Alzahrani, Maha B. Bin Bakr, Educational Leadership & Policy Studies, College of Education, Imam Abdulrahman Bin Faisal University, P.O. Box 1982, Dammam, Saudi Arabia. Email: mbakr@iau.edu.sa

The aim of the research is to identify the role of school leaders in enhancing intellectual security among secondary school students, and the challenges that limit their contribution to enhancing intellectual security (IS), and to reveal the differences according to the variables: (gender, educational qualification, years of experience). The descriptive method was used in order to achieve the study’s objectives; the study population encompassed of all secondary school teachers (n=2032) in Dammam city, Saudi Arabia. A simple random sample of (n=323) was selected and a survey was distributed via e-mail, and the recovered responses were (n=275) representing (85%) response rate. The study findings concluded that the role of school leaders in enhancing the IS of secondary school students came to a “high” degree with (m=4.11) and (SD=0.87) for all study dimensions, where the “teacher” dimension” ranked first, followed by the “student activities” dimension, then the dimensions of “family” and “community” in the same rank. The findings also indicated that the challenges that affect the role of school leaders in enhancing the IS of students came to a “high” degree with (m=3.93) and (SD=0.71). Furthermore, the findings demonstrated that there were no statistically significant differences in the responses related to leaders’ role in enhancing IS (P>0.05), nor in the responses related to the challenges faced by these leaders(P>0.05), which attributed to the study variables (gender, educational qualification, and years of work experience. The study recommends that school leaders may consider developing a strong partnership with the local community to initiate and support various IS programs, and recommends periodical revisions to the curricula and teaching strategies to employ social media and other technological tools to secure the enhancement of IS.

University Faisalabad, 5Principal Law College, Institute of Southern Punjab, Multan, Pakistan. 6MBBS, PG, Jinnah Hospital Lahore

This qualitative research study explored the challenges of rehabilitation among patients with substance use disorder: Professional perspectives. The phenomenological method, inductive reasoning, an emic approach, a purposive sampling technique, and thematic analysis were used. Twenty in-depth semi-structured interviews were conducted with the professionals (psychiatrists, general physicians, psychologists, owners of the rehabilitation centres, lawyers, police officers, members of anti-narcotic drugs, educationists, policymakers, and researchers). Participants aged 35 to 50 years, with 5-10 years of professional experience. The thematic analysis showed rehabilitation is complex since drug abusers' relatives have not realized it takes time. They escalated this issue until it threatened families, society, and themselves. Families did not comprehend that this problem could be controlled (not cured) with proper follow-up and supportive family and social surroundings under expert supervision. Easy availability of drugs, affordability, insufficient resources to deal with the drug Mafia, unavailability of a clear constitution, faulty strategies of law enforcement agencies to deal with the drug Mafia, and indifferent attitude of the government and society can exacerbate problems. Surprisingly, drug rehabilitation centres have no affiliation mechanisms, and drug addicts run most drug rehabilitation centres. The lack of expert supervision of treatment in centers worsens the situation. The solution to this problem required a holistic approach to rehabilitate them, including active participation from the government, law enforcement agencies, and physical-mental health professionals. Social skill-based training workshops, awareness, interpersonal conflict resolution strategies, and good earning opportunities can help them to manage their problem. Implications of the study will add to knowledge in the scientific literature. Pages 1546 to 1562

The President’s Contribution to Dissolving Parliament in the Parliamentary System

Arkan Abbass Hamzaa, Yasir Otaiwi Abboodb, Hussein Jabbar Abed Alnaylic, a,cBabylon University-College of Law, bKarbala University-college of Law, Email: aarkan_khafaji@yahoo.com,  byasir.arri@yahoo.com,  ch.alnaeli@yahoo.com

It is possible to reconcile the position of the President of the Republic with the principle of the duality of the executive branch in the parliamentary system, if it is independent of the Council of Ministers. The Iraqi constitution took the dissolution of parliament, but in the form of a ministerial solution, while adhering to that by the House of Representatives vote on it, and this is contrary to the characteristics of the parliamentary system. The constitutional legislator in Iraq did not explain the reasons for dissolving the parliament, and this is a welcome approach. The Iraqi legislator did not restrict the dissolution of the parliament by not permitting the dissolution again for the same reason or other reasonable restrictions. The role of the President of the Republic in the stage of proposing the dissolution of the Parliament is dependent on the Prime Minister submitting a request for dissolution. The role of the President of the Republic in the stage of separation in dissolving the House of Representatives depends on the members of the House itself. The Iraqi constitution lacked adequate guarantees that compel the President of the Republic to call elections during the period prescribed in the constitution. Pages 24 to 35

This study discusses the interpretation of local government assets. This study aims to uncover the interpretation of local government assets in the actors’ perspective. Researchers use the interpretive paradigm with a phenomenological approach. This study was conducted in Kendari City with local financial management officials as research informants. The study results showed that assets were interpreted as welfare instruments, both individual, organisational and society welfare. The assets usage to improve the society welfare was more important than the individual and organisations’ welfare. It was indicated that the value of social welfare exceeds the personal interest. Efforts to realise the ideals of prosperity in assets’ usage were a reflection of leadership norms to always adhere to principles of prevailing legal norms and systems, and these all come from God teachings through religion and customs. This study was expected to contribute to enrich the concept of public sector assets, especially local government assets and can be utilised by local governments to develop a more effective and efficient asset management and reporting system.

Reaching out to parents is challenging, especially for teachers. However, dominance, oppression, control or negligence is the issue in the home-school connection activity. Through a two hour reflective practice, five English as a foreign language (EFL) teachers share the personal experiences they have encountered during a home-school connection activity. The framework of classroom critical discourse analysis (CCDA) and multimodal discourse analysis (MDA) are carried out to reveal: what EFL home-school connection looks like; the biggest challenge the teacher encounters; and how meaning is made around EFL home-school connection across semiotic modes of teachers’ reflection. This study found that: 1) every participant indicates a different way of reaching out to parents; 2) the biggest challenge for each participant is different from one another, meaning that it is personal and context-based; and 3) verbal and non-verbal text such as semiotic devices indicate how participants make meaning of the home-school connection activity, particularly when dealing with parents.

The purpose of this study is to find factors that influence student entrepreneurial intention by examining variables in the Theory of Planned Behaviour (TPB) (Ajzen, 1991), that have been widely used in predicting behavioural intention namely: attitude toward behaviour; perceived behavioural control; and subjective norm; by placing gender as a moderating variable between subjective norm and behavioural intention. A total of 306 students from several departments within the Faculty of Economics-Jakarta State University were involved in filling out the questionnaire by performing convenient sampling techniques. The analysis was carried out using the Structural Equation Modelling (SEM) method with PLS v2.0 M3. The results indicate that attitude toward behaviour and perceived behavioural control significantly influence the entrepreneurial intention, while gender has a quasi-moderation role in a negative direction. It means that gender has the reducing effect of subjective norms on students' entrepreneurial intention. Pages 193 to 207

Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women. Women with breast cancer face many psychosocial and physical problems. In addition, such women have to deal with treatment problems, physical changes, feelings of loss and uncertainty, self-reconstruction, and changes in social interaction and support. This study aims to explore and identify their life experiences while undergoing chemotherapy. A phenomenological approach was used to explore the meaning of life with breast cancer for women undergoing chemotherapy at Surabaya, Indonesia. The patient's feelings and life experience with breast cancer were explored by using in-depth interviews with 30 women between 26 and 65 years. The results of this study reveal that the diagnosis of breast cancer produces various emotional responses. Participants explained their experience of living with breast cancer as losing something important, lack of self-confidence, living with fear, emotional dizziness and the need to be supported in the negative aspects of breast cancer and helping to explore new aspects of life as a positive aspect of this event. These findings have the potential to lessen health disparities in increasing utilisation of psychosocial treatments by Indonesian women with breast cancer.Pages 249 to 262

The Role of Value Stream Costing in Reducing Product Costs: An Empirical Study

Laith Mahdi Azeeza, Nidhal Mohammed Ridha Mohsinb*, a,bAccounting Department, Faculty of Administration and Economics, Mustansiriyah University, Baghdad, Iraq, Email: b*nadalkalaf@uomustansiriyah.edu.iq

Economic units have begun to realise an important fact. Traditional cost accounting systems may not be consistent with the administrative tools and techniques produced by lean thinking, a concept that economic units are trying to apply. This research explains the theoretical foundations of value stream technology, and the most prominent lean accounting techniques. It distinguishes activities that add value from those that do not, to exclude the latter. It is hypothesised that the application of value stream technology reduces costs, and enhances the perceived value of the customer. This study shows that the value stream cost approach deals with a specific number of value streams, unlike traditional cost systems that deal with a large number of products. Consequently, the volume of planning, preparing, measuring and controlling costs is less than the value of current costs.Pages 291 to 304

Sari Khalidya Putria, Azhar Maksumb*, a,bUniversitas Sumatera Utara, Medan, Indonesia, Email: b*azhar@usu.ac.id

The objective of the research was to analyse the impact of Good Corporate Governance (GCG) (institutional ownership, independent commissioners, audit committees), profitability, financial leverage, and firm size on firm value, with earnings management as a moderating variable. Data are collected from the financial statements of manufacturing companies listed in ISSI in the period of 2014-2018. The result showed that, GCG (institutional ownership, independent commissioners, audit committee), profitability, financial leverage, and firm size significantly influenced firm value. Institutional ownership did not have any influence on firm value. Audit committees negatively influenced firm value. Independent commissioners, profitability, financial leverage, and firm size positively influenced firm value. Earnings management as a moderating variable could not moderate the correlation of GCG (institutional ownership, independent commissioners, audit committee), profitability, financial leverage, and firm size on firm value.Pages 305 to 324

Informing Wetland Management: An Economic Valuation of Tam Giang - Cau Hai Lagoon, Vietnam

Hong Chuong Phama, Ha Thanh Leb, Mau Dung Nguyenc, a,bNational Economics University, Hanoi, Vietnam, cHanoi Agriculture University, Hanoi, Vietnam, Email: achuongph@neu.edu.vn,  bthanhlh@neu.edu.vn,  cmaudung@vnua.edu.vn

Natural wetlands are ecosystems. They provide numerous goods and services for the local population inside a wetland or its periphery, and for communities in the wider landscape. Commonly the intrinsic and economic values of goods and services provided by wetlands are insufficiently considered in planning and decisions on socio-economic or sectoral development, to guide the conservation and wise use of wetland resources. This paper estimates the total economic value (TEV) of ecosystem services provided by the Tam Giang-Cau Hai (TG-CH) wetland lagoon in Vietnam, at US$77.291 mill. The estimate is based on various methods, for specific ecosystem services. Two wetland management options, including: (i) “Business as Usual” and (ii) Establishment of wetland conservation area (WCA) are formulated, to conduct a quantified benefit analysis. The option of establishing a TG-CH WCA is able to bring the significantly higher TEV (around US$178 mill.) than the “Business as Usual” over a 20-year time horizon 2016-2035. Our findings add to the empirical evidence suggesting that wetland conservation is not only good ecologically, but also viable economic policy. The study’s results reinforce the significant economic value of wetland, and seek to support decision-making on wetland management strategies selection. Pages 325 to 344

The Rise of the Mediation Method in Wealth Management

Nur Khalidah Dahlana, Ruzian Markomb, Rozlinda Mohamed Fadzilc, a,b,cFaculty of Law, The National University of Malaysia,

Alternative Dispute Resolution, or ADR, is a process for resolving conflicts - one that respects the dignity of individuals while creating mutually satisfying solutions. ADR uses communication skills, collaboration, negotiation, and mediation to produce an agreement that meets the interests of the parties involved. Alternative disputes resolution method has appeared to be more in line with Islamic precepts that consist of consultation (shura), mediation and conciliation (Sulh), as well as arbitration. When participating in Alternative Dispute Resolution, parties maintain the right to seek agreement and settlement. Mediation enjoys consistently high satisfaction rates by participants. In Malaysia, the organisation bodies for mediation are the Malaysian Mediation Centre, Securities Industry Dispute Resolution Centre (SIDREC) and the Ombudsman Financial Service (OFS). All these centres are focusing on banking and financial instruments.  There is an indication that ADR options can lead to more efficient use of resources by the courts, saving time and money for litigants, and reducing levels of subsequent litigation. This paper will focus on some of the organisation bodies that practice mediation which and have been successfully undertaken in the past. Thse practices are examples of those that can also be similarly applied in the future. Pages 530 to 544

This study aims to explore the impact of modern technological innovations in the field of oil on the levels of global production and consumption of oil through the use of a descriptive and analytical approach. The results show that oil technologies led to a real revolution in changing the course of events during the past few years, especially in the field of production and consumption of oil squarely on the throne of energy, through increasing oil reserves, using three-dimensional exploration techniques (D3 and D4) that reduced the failure rate in drilling wells up to limits (8/10). In addition, it helped to find other oil basins, as well as in the discovery of oil reserves in the Atlantic Ocean and the coasts of Mexico, Brazil and West Africa, such as the Republic of Guinea and others, as well as reservoirs in deep waters. The technology is merited with increasing production from existing fields, through the development of drilling and production techniques, and enhanced production that added new energy estimated at two thirds (2/3) of the primary production capacity of the well, and the technologies helped in the production of unconventional oils, such as shale oil, shale oil and bottoms oil oceans. In addition, technology also is greatly credited with reducing oil consumption, by improving the efficiency of engines in energy production and reducing the level of fuel consumption, as it brought the car to run at 57.1 kilometres / gallon.

The Effect of Marketing Deception on Consumer Purchasing Decisions -An Analytical Study of the Opinions of a Sample of Baghdad University Students

Alaa Nabeel Al-Healia, aMarket Research and Consumer Protection Center, University of Baghdad, Iraq.

The study aims to discover the effect of  marketing deception practised by mobile phone companies in after-sales services, whether they are providing guarantee services, after-sales service price, promotion or distribution regarding the decision for  consumer purchase. A descriptive analytical method has been selected. Data was collected through a questionnaire that was distributed electronically to  random individual samples, represented by graduate students in both the Institute of Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology for Post-graduate studies  and the Higher Institute for Financial and Accounting Studies / University of Baghdad. The sample size consisted of (60) students while the data analysis showed that there is a correlation between  marketing deception of  after-sales service and  consumer purchasing decision. Marketing deception related to  price significantly affects  consumer purchase decisions, however  marketing deception in service, promotion and distribution does not significantly affect  consumer sparks decision. This result is due to the nature of  consumer culture, the studied sample and the extent of their understanding of the questions. Amongst the most important recommendations of the study is the necessity of working to activate the role of the Consumer Protection Association to monitor the market in the after-sales services sector by conducting awareness campaigns for consumers of their rights to enhance their ability to test the quality of services provided to them and impose penalties on marketing companies that demonstrate the practice of marketing deception in order to reduce unethical practices.

A Study on Foreign Direct Investment Flows in Vietnam

Van Su Haa*, Thu Thuy Nguyenb, aAssociate Professor, Faculty of Economics & Law, Thuongmai University, Vietnam, bAssociate Professor, Faculty of Financial & Banking, Thuongmai University, Vietnam, Email: a*hvsdhtm@tmu.edu.vn,  bthuy.nt@tmu.edu.vn

Integration is forecasted to have a substantial impact on not only import and export activities but also on the ability to attract foreign direct investment (FDI) into Vietnam. Our regression results show that trade openness has a positive impact on Vietnam’s inward FDI (an increase of 1.0% in trade liberalisation can result in an increase of 0.23% in FDI inflows to Vietnam). Notably, our simulation results reveal that the CPTPP will increase the growth rate of FDI into Vietnam from 2.0% -2.4%/ year compared to the base scenario. However, the degree of impact will vary over time. Between 2019 and 2025, FDI inflows will tend to increase faster than in the following period 2026-2035. This shows that CPTPP will have a faster and stronger impact in the first 6 years (2019-2025) (with a steeper impact curve) when the agreement officially takes effect for Vietnam. Then the impact will decrease gradually in the following years. Pages 682 to 700

This article discusses the role of Batam Island during the period of Indonesia-Malaysia Confrontation (1964-1966), which in Indonesia was propagandised under the slogan “Ganyang Malaysia” (“Crush Malaysia”). The discussion focuses on why Batam Island was chosen as the command centre of the volunteer army in its mission to “Crush Malaysia”. The study shows that Batam Island’s strategic location was the main reason for its selection as the volunteer army’s base. The choice was also based on the island’s proximity to Sambu Island as the command centre of the KKO (the Indonesian Marine Corps). The two islands were prepared as the starting point of a planned attack against Singapore, then still part of the Federation of Malaysia. For Indonesia, Singapore was the most crucial part of the confrontation, and as part of the plan was to to sabotage it, Indonesia chose Batam Island as the volunteer army’s base due to its proximity to Singapore.

Information technology risk management (ITRM) is being enforced by regulators on strategic and complex organisations such as financial institutions. This research paper investigates risk management problems uncovered while doing case study analysis with selected organisations. This study revealed that factors most impacted by organisation size are tools, interdependence and expertise of the three lines of defence. The findings imply that risk management tools need development to fit with the interdependent working of the three lines of defence structure. Also, people in the organisation need training to improve risk management expertise and to drive the three lines of defence to work effectively. Size of an organisation also impacts ITRM practice. Furthermore, the results of this research reveal problems different from previous ITRM research as most of the prior research suggested improving ITRM processes and models. The theoretical contribution of this research is the framework of principles and practice fit focusing on process structuring. Pages 744 to 760

This paper focuses on the implementation of Indonesia's free and active foreign policy in Southeast Asia, during the presidency of Suharto. It looks at a wide range of study cases from 1967-1998 that reflect how Indonesia’ free and active policy has shaped most of its interaction in the Southeast Asian region during the Cold War. The research adopts analytical-descriptive research methodology in interpreting Suharto’s policies in responding to the Southeast Asian political landscape. The paper concludes that the success of Indonesia’s free and active foreign policy in Southeast Asia during Suharto’s rule is based on (1) historical aspects of Indonesian kingdom dominance in Southeast Asia, (2) the political culture of Javanese ethnicity, (3) increasing military support that strengthened the regime’s power, and (4) aligned policies with dominant domestic institutions in Indonesia.

Promoting Good Governance in Labour Relations, among Thailand’s Public Higher Education Institutions

Aree Phasansinthuwonga, Chokchai Suttawetb, a,bFaculty of Social Science & Humanities, Mahidol University, Thailand, Email: aaphasansinthuwong@gmail.com,  bcsuttawet@gmail.com 

This paper studies good governance in human resource management of public higher education institutions in Thailand. It then suggests developing the labour relations system. Qualitative data were collected from in-depth interviews with 58 informants, and a focus group discussion with seven participants. Questionnaires collected quantitative data from 83 public higher education institutions. The results revealed 1) a patronage system used in every process of human resource administration in universities, and 2) human resource administration, especially as to university employees, is based on each university’s regulations. This paper suggests that guidelines for promoting good governance in such matters consist of two key mechanisms. They are a joint consultation system, by establishing a joint consultation committee of the university staff, and management representatives with roles comparable to those of a trade union in a company’s consultation body. The State should review labour relations laws, to ensure the rights of all university employees and other workers. Measures should be announced that integrate labour relations at organisational and national levels. The universities should practically promote the roles of lecturers and staff council as a workers’ democratic organisation, to negotiate and consult with management. Pages 974 to 990

The Development of Public Policy and Administration on Social Security in ASEAN: A Case Study of Social Insurance for Thai Migrant Workers

Wilailak Yoosamrana, Chokchai Suttawetb, a,bFaculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, Mahidol University, Thailand,

This research was aimed at studying the development of public policy and social security administration, including the study of operational conditions and problems of protecting social insurance benefits for Thai migrant workers working abroad (Singapore, Malaysia and Brunei) along with developing schemes and guidelines on protecting social insurance benefits for such migrants. This study was a mixed-method research that employed concurrent procedures using a qualitatively-driven core component coupled with the simultaneous QUAL+quan method. Qualitative data were collected using in-depth interviews with 55 key informants and focus groups with 30 Thai migrant workers in Singapore, Malaysia and Brunei. Quantitative data were collected from 275 Thai migrant workers working in those three countries by using questionnaires. The results revealed that development of social security protection policy and administration for migrant workers in ASEAN had no clear measures for cooperation between ASEAN member countries. In the meantime, work conditions and problems of the social insurance protection for Thai migrant workers were found to have numerous limitations, especially on the topic of benefits, which were usually short-term benefits, including obstacles imposed by different countries. This created inferior treatments for Thai migrant workers as compared to the country own citizens. Regarding protection schemes and social security benefit protection guidelines for Thai migrant workers who work abroad, unilateral measures of Thailand or the country of origin had the highest suitability and likelihood of implementation, followed by bilateral measures of countries in dispute and multilateral measures in the name of ASEAN.

Research shows that radical innovation is more likely to come from smaller companies such as ‘startups’. Startup is drawing a lot of attention given the growth potential for both entrepreneurs and investors. One of the most challenging aspects in this venture is the investability readiness level of the startup as it is difficult to assess the usual financial aspect such as cash flow in the initial loss-making company with no or limited financial data. The authors developed an Investability Prospect Score (IPS) based on a similar approach from Altman’s Z-score by using a Multiple Discriminant Analysis (MDA) method. Responses to questionnaires from a cross sectional online survey were then used to identify factors such as industry structure, product readiness, founders’ background and management structure, financial robustness and risk management towards investment readiness in Indonesia and the early stage digital startups ecosystem. The contribution aspect of this article is to provide a structured approach in identifying the readiness status of startup for investment. This could also be used as additional determinants towards a valuation model such as real options which is deemed to be more suitable in dealing with the flexibility and uncertain nature of digital startups.

The Violation of the Principle of Equality in the Iraqi Penal Code

Mazin Khalaf Nasera, aDepartment of public law - Criminal Law Al-Mustansiriyah University- College of Law- Iraq, Email: aDr.mazin.khalaf@gmail.com

The concept of criminal equality is highly associated with the development of criminal law function; it has acquired a new concept that goes in line with the diversity of methods and objectives of criminal law. Equality is no more referring to only that kind of solid equality which is limited to criminalisation and punishment, but its content has expanded to include, in addition to punishment, social qualification by seeking to achieve best methods of reforming and qualifying the convicted in order to redress him, which leads us to think that not achieving equality in some cases is, in fact, the achievement of its real equality. The legislator made it sure to set many guarantees that achieve equality in criminal law, but there are cases that depart from the equality principle in criminal law which the legislator did not interfere in or fix. This raises the questions about the reasons why he corrects some cases of equality violation in order to achieve specific considerations that can be justified in specific cases and cannot in others. Violation of the principle of equality in some cases can be intentionally acceptable for the legislator to achieve particular purposes, and it can happen unintentionally, which would be unacceptable in other cases.

Vulnerability of Stock Returns and the effects of Covid-19: An Event Study from the Energy Sector of USA

Hafiz Waqas Kamrana, Muhammad Atif Nawazb, Muhammad Rizwan Ullahc, aAssistant Professor, Faculty of Business Administration, Iqra University, Karachi, Pakistan, bSenior Lecturer, Department of Economics, The Islamia University of Bahawalpur, Pakistan, cLyallpur Business School, Government College University, Faisalabad, Pakistan, Email: ahafiz.waqas@iqra.edu.pk,  batif.nawaz.baloch@gmail.com,  cmrizwanullah77@gmail.com

The outbreak of COVID-19 creates serious distress for the world economy due to an increasing economic, financial and health related response to the pandemic. The purpose of this paper is to examine the reaction of the energy sector in the USA toward the outbreak of COVID-19, which reportedly began on 20th January, 2020 (event day). This study uses a sample of 33 listed firms from the energy sector of USA during the period of January 2019 to March 2020, with daily observations. The reaction of the stock return is observed through event study methodology while calculating the cumulative average abnormal return (CAAR). The study findings show that out of 33 sampled firms, only five significantly reacted against the outbreak of COVID-19 on the event day, whereas for the first event window (-3,3) the stock return (CAAR) for the ten energy firms is found to be statistically significant (in normality assumption), providing that only 30.30% sample firms are reacting against this pandemic. The results of this research would be of reasonable support to industry experts, investors and other stakeholders while making some strategic decisions on the basis of disease outbreaks and trends in stocks return, specifically in the energy sector. As an extension to this research, expanding the regional boundaries, sample period, and adding those firm-related variables which may serve as risk mitigating factors against disease epidemics and stock return relationship would provide a good output.

Public Attitudes towards News Processing of Events and Events of Basra Governorate in Iraqi Satellite Channels

Mohsen Glob Alkanania, Alaa Jasab Ajeel Al-Abd Alaalib, a University of Baghdad, bMiddle Technical University / College of Applied Arts,

The crisis of the demonstrations in the province of Basra, which began on 8/7/2018, was one of the most prominent events that preoccupied the Iraqi media in general, and satellite channels in particular, as this event was the focus of media attention, despite the divergence of views on it. As part of their efforts to interact with this event, satellite channels worked to provide a variety of press treatments that dealt with its various aspects. The follow-up of news by satellite channels processing this event noted that it was represented in three levels: the first level of adoption, promotion and amplification of the event; the second with the event, impartially, and; the third level is ignored and passed by. This research attempts to find out the public's attitudes toward this news processing provided by Iraqi satellite channels for this event and crisis. The importance of this research is attached to the increasing attention to this crisis. The research aims to monitor and analyse the exposure of the sample to the media messages in all its forms and contents, which were broadcast by the Iraqi satellite channels concerning the crisis, and to monitor and analyse the direction of sample count. We look for the news processing of the Iraqi satellite channels for the Basra demonstrations. This research is based on correlational research and uses the analytical survey method. The researchers designed a three-dimensional measure consisting of gradients. The researchers used the statistical methods of repetitions, simple percentages, relative weight, arithmetic mean, standard deviation and the Pearson correlation coefficient. The relationship between the educational level of the researchers and the sample towards the treatment of Iraqi satellite channels for this crisis was reached.  Findings reveal the existence of a weak positive relationship between the intensity of the subject's exposure to the news processing channels (the cognitive effect) and (emotional impact) and a very strong positive relationship between the intensity of exposure of the subject to the treatment of the news of demonstrations and events of Basra by Iraqi satellite channels and between the sample trends towards this crisis (the behavioural impact).

The Jokowi Government launched the Village Fund program in 2014. The village fund aims to equalise village development and improve the welfare of village communities. Although in terms of the amount of funds distributed the fund increases every year, research shows that the use of village funds has not been effective. This paper analyses regulatory gaps on village funds, believed to be one of the sources causing ineffectiveness in the implementation of village funds. The type of research used is evaluative research. This paper found that there are several problems faced by existing regulations, namely: contradictory provisions among regulations regarding the village fund, regulations are scattered and easy to change, and the shift of paradigm toward the expected use of the village fund. At the end of this paper, several recommendations are given to improve the existing village fund regulations. Pages 1191 to 1207

Assertion and Negation: Restrictions on the occurrence of the post-verbal Enclitic –š in Jordanian Arabic

Imran Alrashdana, Essa Salemb, Mohd Nour Al Salemc, a,b,cThe University of Jordan, Email: ai.alrashdan@ju.edu.jo,  bes.salem@ju.edu.jo,  cmo.alsalem@ju.edu.jo

This paper accounts for the complementary distribution found in Jordanian Arabic between the post-verbal negative enclitic –š and elements from two categories: (i) expressions used, prima facie, in oaths such as wħyaatabooy 'by my father' and (ii) Negative Sensitive Items (NSIs), particularly when they occur in a preverbal position. The study shows that these elements from the two categories have one characteristic in common, i.e. assertivity. The use of either category asserts the positive or negative value of the accompanying proposition. We argue that such assertive operators are similar in function to the post-verbal negative enclitic–š which is also assumed to have an assertive function. The account of the complementary distribution of either category with –š is that both compete for the same position (at LF), namely Assertive Projection (AssP). Pages 1208 to 1235

This study aimed to understand the pire teu culture in the native society of dai mau enga nanga in Aewora, Ende Regency. The study was qualitative and data were collected through observation and in-depth interviews with snowball sampling to obtain appropriate informants. Pire teu (abstinence/taboo from rats) is one of the cultures in native society of mau enga nanga which becomes one of the rituals prior to the growing season and started with the jengi soko ceremony (burning green weeds) and pire teu. Pire teu is conducted in 3 consecutive days, the first day is called pire teu (abstinence from the whole body of rat), the second day is called pire ngii teu (abstinence from rat teeth), and the third day is called pire tai teu (abstinence from rat droppings). The customary sanctions imposed to those who violate the rules of the first day pire teu are adjusted to the religions and beliefs, for Catholics, the fine for the first day violation is two (2) pigs weighing two people who carried it (bei rua), while for Muslims, it is goats weighing two people who carried it (bei rua). The second and third penalties for the offender, who is catholic, is one pig weighing one person who carried it (sabei) and for a muslim one goat weighing one person who carried it (sabei). The bill of pire teu is not only about restraint, prohibition, and sanctions imposed by violators, but it also has religious-magical value and spirituality in maintaining close relationships between humans, their environment and Almighty God, and the fear of the community that they will get the damage if violating the rules, either failure in harvesting crops, crops damaged by rats, or even death.

Improving company performance is the top priority of every executive. Before digitalisation and globalisation, the increase in assets and financial performance were counted as top indicators of  company performance. However, innovation as well as understanding and meeting customer performance are considered top priority for companies today. This era has been named as the period of transformative marketing. In transformative marketing, companies are required to transform themselves with changes in the business landscape. These changes are dependent on employees. Only  highly motivated and entrepreneurial  employees can help  companies in this transformation. The transformation is not routine  and  employees cannot be formally pushed to participate. Transformation needs the highest level of employee involvement  . Therefore, this study uses a multidisciplinary approach suggesting a framework for improvement of company performance in the era of transformative marketing. The study concludes that  transformative marketing and entrepreneurial behaviour of employees can result in better company performance. Future researchers are recommended to use this framework and validate it across various cultures.  Pages 1337 to 1353

In light of the rapid changes and successive developments that have accompanied the modern era, the business environment has faced many challenges, including growing intensity of competition.  Iraqi industrial economic units suffer from numerous  problems, the most important of which are high costs and low quality of  products as well as increase in the duration  of design, manufacturing, assembly and marketing in addition to  lack of adequate flexibility  in response to the needs and desires of customers. Despite these problems, there are several administrative and cost techniques that will help solve these challenges. The most important of these techniques is value analysis and concurrent engineering. Value analysis focuses on improving project or product performance and analysing the start of its components down to its functions in order to exclude jobs that do not add value from the customer's perspective. Competitive advantage either refers to characterising the economic unit to any item unique to competitors in the market, and it can be achieved if you follow this unit to any strategy aimed at achieving a competitive advantage. Concurrent engineering technique focuses on conducting simultaneous product design in addition to synchronisation in the manufacturing and assembly operations in order to achieve savings in design, manufacturing and associated costs. Competitive advantage refers to characterising the company to any item unique to competitors. Pages 1371 to 1388

The paper discusses a dichotomy that some scholars consider as a concept, and they lay the limitations for it, while others consider it as a problem that should be solved through setting up certain differences between truth and fact, and how they will be understood in texts. The paper aims to tackle these two concepts by analysing them pragmatically, since it will refer to the context of semantic meanings relating to the conditions of use in the text, the psychological dimension of the author, and the effect of the text on the receiver, which makes the poetic text the field of application. This paper is an attempt to discuss the stages of realising these concepts in an Arabic mind and how the cognitive awareness develops. The research includes three readings: the first is the concept of truth and fact and the differences between them. The second reading is the cognitive realisation of an Arabic mind, and the third one is the poetic gift and the effect of culture on it. Pages 1389 to 1396

This summary looks at the interim bank which, according to the provisions of the Iraqi bank 94 for the year 2004, was the most important means of rehabilitating the faltering private banks. This kind of reserve now has its own medicine, which differs from the other banks stipulated by the Iraqi banks in terms of the establishment and in terms of Sunset. What concerns us in our study of the subject is the expiry of the bank in progress, as the bank in question ends normally by either carrying out its tasks, which is rehabilitating the troubled private bank and returning it to normal, or finalising the expiry of the specified period under the law. It is set to be three years in any case. The other way to finish the bank is to close the progress bank, based on the impossibility of implementation, where in some cases the administrators of the interim bank consider that it is impossible for them to carry out the duty assigned to them, which is to rehabilitate the troubled private bank, as well as to end it by a decision of the Minister of Finance at any stage of rehabilitation. We will therefore address this research on the expiry of the interim bank and reach several conclusions and proposals. Pages 1397 to 1406

Differences in Religious Understanding and Social Integration

Ahmad Sarbinia, aUniversitas Islam Negeri, Sunan Gunung Djati Bandung, Indonesia, Email: aahmadsarbini@uinsgd.ac.id

The complexity of different religious understanding in society, especially among the Islamic community, is considered as an undeniable reality. This complexity has influenced their social relationship, including their social integration. This research is intended to describe and formulate empirical evidence about the dynamic reality of social relationships in one society which is various in religious ideology espoused. This study utilised the explorative-comparative method because the primary goal of this study is to get an objective and actual description of the research variables. Then, the variables were compared and contrasted with clear differences and similarities as well as the characteristics of religious understanding, response to different religious understanding, and social integration reflected in types of interactions of each group of participants. This integration is reflected in their forms of social relationship, especially in communication, humanitarian cooperation and social solidarity, love and affection, and tolerance in social life. Functionally, the phenomenon of different religious understanding in society had a positive relationship with social integration. The study contributes to providing a model of social integration that can be used as a guideline for social life where society has a different religious understanding background to develop harmony in society.

The Diasporic Home of the Displaced Youth in Susan Abulhawa’s ‘Mornings in Jenin’

Riham Alhadhouda, Deema Ammarib*, a,bUniversity of Jordan, Email: b*deemaammari@yahoo.co.uk

This paper explores the question of a diasporic home as pertaining to the younger members of diaspora; why the displaced youth’s perception of home diverges from that of the older generation, and what understandings of various home experiences in the diaspora lead the displaced youth to. To address these questions the experiences of different generations projected in Susan Abulhawa’s ‘Mornings in Jenin’, with specific focus on Amal the protagonist’s journey, will bring to light a new scope for post-colonial studies. The paper investigates the main dimensions that play vital roles in deciding the younger displaced subject’s degree of attachment to or detachment from both people and places. It concludes that one’s belonging depends solely on the circumstantial journey within the wider frame of diaspora, which leads the young diasporic family member to question the projected image of home and construct their own subjective one. A feminist dimension will be added, thus fixating the study particularly on dislocated women, and how their resilience becomes their urgency to create, from within their bodies, authentic perceptions that transcend the geographic allocation of a home.

The study investigated the effect of training and development (T&D) on the turnover intention of faculty members in public sector universities in Pakistan. A questionnaire was administered for collecting data from 306 from university teachers. Confirmatory factor analysis, using structural equation modeling (SEM), was applied to validate the relationships among the variables.The findings showed that T&D are vital for improving the knowledge, skills, and abilities of the academic staff, and equally reducing staff turnover intentions. Moreover, the research highlighted that all the three dimensions of T&D- professed availability of training, motivation to learn from training, and professed benefits of training were statistically significant with turnover intention, hence confirming the findings of the earlier studies on the topic.  Moreover, the findings confirm social exchange theory. The implications of the study for stakeholders have been given. Higher Education Commission (HEC) of Pakistan has provided T&D programs to the faculty at universities for improving the KSAs of faculty members; however, the amount of research available to know the views of faculty members regarding T&D programs is equal to naught. Therefore, little is known about the nature of T&D programs directly from the viewpoint of the faculty members. Pages 1487 to 1510

Prototypical Features and Practices of Romanised Arabic in Computer-mediated Communication

Essa Salema, aUniversity of Jordan Department of English Language and Literature, Email: aes.salem@ju.edu.jo

Advancements in computer-mediated communication (CMC) tools have had a great impact on the language used in interactions via these tools. This study explores recurrent features and patterns used by Jordanians on Facebook and WhatsApp in their Romanised Arabic interactions. To this end, a corpus of 200 Facebook posts/comments (collected from 36 randomly-selected informants representing different age groups, gender, and socio-economic backgrounds), transcripts of interactions in three WhatsApp groups, and dyadic WhatsApp text messages was compiled. The analysis was intended to find patterns in the use of language on the two social media platforms and required the occurrence of the same feature in both genres to be regarded as recurrent. The results reveal that there are two innovative recurrent practices related to Romanised Arabic (RA): transliteration of RA characters, and stereotypical code-switching (CS) practices that aim at establishing an online social identity. The findings also show that RA representation has three aspects: orthographic, linguistic and paralinguistic. The study provides insights into understanding how technological tools have changed language use in virtual communications. Pages 39 to 57

The Right of Self-determination by the Free Papua Movement through International Law Analysis

Adelia Putri Zulkarnaina, Arie Afriansyahb, a,bFaculty of Law, Universitas Indonesia,  Email: azulkarnainadelia@gmail.combarie.afriansyah@ui.ac.id

This paper calls the question of the right of self-determination under International Law. The issue of self-determination in Indonesia was re-triggered in December 2018, when the Free Papua Movement shot the employees of PT Istaka Karya, and 16 out of 28 people died in that tragedy. The Free Papua Movement, also known as OPM, is the first group to have echoed the independence for Papua since 1965. The Papua, known as West Papua by international society, has been a never-ending debate among scholars. The purpose of this study is to find the concept of self-determination, and peoples who are entitled to that right. The research method used is normative legal research and uses a historical approach and a doctrinal approach. The result shows that the concept of the right of self-determination is related to the context of decolonisation, which reveals the type of self-determination – not limited to external self-determination, but internal as well. Such context is not present in the Papua circumstances, whatsoever. Pages 58 to 73

This article seeks to identify the North American contributions to the foresight framed in studies on scenarios and the Delphi method. For this purpose two search equations were made in the Scopus database, with the keywords “foresight,  “Delphi Method” and “Scenarios.  In order to find papers on Delphi applications and scenarios, based on the results obtained, an in-depth analysis was carried out on the documents of authors from the United States and Canada. In the search equation one, focused on scenarios, 66 papers were found, and 50 papers in the search equation focused on the Delphi method. From these 116 papers, 20 were studies conducted by authors from North America. Among the most important results, the contributions against methods and techniques used for Delphi such as Delphi policy, focus groups and WEB Tool for Delphi in real-time are highlighted. In scenarios, they made contributions in serious games, game cards, imaginative narratives, and sensitivity analysis. It was also found that North America, in the sample analysed, has collaborated with 17 percent of the total of papers for scenarios, and in Delphi, 14 percent. In scenarios that take into consideration the top five countries, North America contributes 30 percent – a figure higher than the 20 percent of France, which is considered the country of origin of the scenarios. Whereas with Delphi in the top four countries, North America is the region that contributes the most, with 25 percent, equal with Japan.  Pages 74 to 95

Face-to-Face and E-Learning: Lessons Learned from the Forced Shift to E-Learning during the COVID-19 Outbreak

Diena Dwidienawatia*,Sri Bramatoro Abdinagorob, David Tjahjanac, Dyah Gandasarid, Munawarohe, a,bBinus Business School, Bina Nusantara University, Indonesia, cUniversitas Multimedia Nusantara, Indonesia, dPolbangtan Bogor, Indonesia, eSwiss German University, Indonesia, Email: a*diena.tjiptadi@gmail.com

The COVID-19 pandemic outbreak is not only affecting human health, it is also affecting other aspects of human life. In the education sector, the recommendation of health authorities in many countries has forced the education sector to find an alternative to face-to-face delivery methods.  In this critical situation, the smooth and easy alternative to face-to-face education is distance learning. Distance learning or e-learning has increasingly gained popularity in higher education. Even though e-learning is a hot topic, e-learning is still more of a supplement to education in normal conditions. During the COVID-19 outbreak in Indonesia, almost all universities in Indonesia are delivering lectures through e-learning. This is a good opportunity to find out student's perceptions of e-learning.  This study aimed to see what students like and dislike about e-learning and what their preferences are after experiencing un-intentioned e-learning. A qualitative study using questionnaires as an instrument was conducted with University Students at 4 campuses in Greater Jakarta, Indonesia.  They were asked to answer questions about their e-learning experiences, what they like, and what they dislike.  One hundred and fifty-three questionnaires were analysed. The findings of the study showed that things that students like about e-learning were the flexiblity; that it can be done anywhere; is easy, less time consuming and relaxing. The things that they dislike were an unstable internet connection; unclear lecture delivery; less interaction with lecturers and friends; and the inability to ask a question in detail or to have a discussion. Most students still preferred face-to-face learning compared to e-learning. This study contributes to e-learning literature.  This study also contributes to e-learning practice. Pages 119 to 134

A. Rina Herawatia, Dian Indriyanib, a,bSTIA Lan Jakarta, Indonesia, Email: aaugustin.rina@gmail.combdian.indriyani@stialan.ac.id

Indonesia has faced global economic issues which impact its national situation. These include issues as to human development, the environment and natural resources, peace and security, and global governance. This paper proposes a governance model to answer the global governance challenge, one which is suitable for Indonesia. It develops and evaluates a governance model that fits recent situations. Several aspects are analysed in this study; e.g. public participation, transparency, responsiveness, consensus-orientation, equity and inclusiveness, effectiveness and efficiency, and accountability. Through a qualitative approach, the study tried to understand the aspects of global governance which occurred in Indonesia. The participants were representative samples from a higher education background, local government, NGOs, and private parties. Several approaches were compared, to manage globalisation issues. They ranged from neoliberal, Marxist / anti-globalisation, to agency-centred approaches. They were reformulated to understand better the conceptualisation of global governance, and how it shaped society-state relations in the democratic system. The study found that Indonesia has implemented global governance imperfectly. Pages 148 to 165

A Better Approach to Internalising Nationalism in Higher Education

Farida Hanuma, Suyatab, Lalu Sumardic, a,bGraduate School, Yogyakarta State University, Indonesia, cFaculty of Teacher Training and Education, University of Mataram, Mataram, Indonesia, Email: afarida_hanum@uny.ac.idclalu.unram@gmail.com

Many ways have been pursued by universities to instil student nationalism, but not all methods are effective. This research aims for a better approach. A mixed-method type of explanatory sequential research is used. The steps are: Firstly, collecting qualitative data through interviews, FGDs, and documentation techniques, and then analysing it using interactive models. Secondly, collecting quantitative data using a questionnaire and analysing it using ANOVA. The findings of this study indicate there are two approaches to internalising nationalism in higher education, namely; the partial approach and the integral approach. The integral approach is more effective than the partial approach. Therefore, universities are encouraged to use an integral approach in developing student nationalism. Pages 182 to 197

Supply chain risks (SCRs) are a critical managerial issue. Their recurrence is elevated, with extreme ramifications for the existence and survival of the firm and its supply chain. This study focuses on how different SCRs influence supply chain resilience (SCRES) and ultimately supply chain performance (SCP). A quantitative methodology was chosen, with 182 respondents from large scale manufacturing organisations in Pakistan. The results show that, except for customer-oriented risk exposure, all risk types significantly influence SCR, while SCRES has a massive influence on SCP. Further, SCRES significantly mediates all other risk factors towards SCP. The results also pointed to the importance of investing and having certain resilient capabilities which enable firms to improve capability in anticipating, responding and recovering, at times of disruptions, and facilitating the enhancement of SCP.

This study investigated Indonesian EFL (English as Foreign Language) teachers’ issues, and challenges to professional development (PD), particularly as related to language proficiency. One critical proficiency in teaching English is teachers’ language. It holds a key role in facilitating learning. PD is essential for supporting teachers’ goals and responsibility in learning and working towards fulfilment as professional English teachers. This qualitative study used an in-depth interview as the main data collection instrument. The study participants were six professional EFL teachers, with five to 30 years of English teaching. The participants were found to view professional development for language proficiency as important. It is part of their life-long or career-long learning, influenced by the pedagogical environment and individual language proficiency awareness. The study also revealed some issues and challenges regarding PD for language proficiency, such as language proficiency, were rarely offered by the government. Teachers had to autonomously and individually join and participate in such events. The article recommends that Indonesian EFL teachers must have self-awareness of the importance of improving their language proficiency, by participating in PD for language proficiency, despite the issues and challenges they might encounter. They have to make use of any chances to help them keep their professionalism high, by becoming good EFL teachers. Pages 239 to 256

Recent studies on resilience showed that organisational capacity to build resilience in facing the changes depends on an organisation’s ability to integrate the cores practices and procedures through its employees’ contribution. Employees’ resilience becomes a very important matter because employees are the agents of change. This study is a literature review on employee resilience empirical research that discuss variables in the organisation related to employee resilience, roles and measurements used. There are 48 variables found in the literature which show how important the role of employee resilience is in the organisation. These variables are then mapped into 9 groups and their role in employee resilience. Further, the study indicates what variables have been rigorously investigated and which have not. Next, the concept of employee resilience is discussed, both as personal capacity and developed resources acting as antecedent, mediator, moderator and outcome. 14 scale measurements on employee resilience are also mapped with quantitative approaches conducted by the previous studies, in the context of work and non-work. Those measurements are then adopted in the context of working, be it as a whole, in part or in a shorter version than the previous ones. Finally, results of the study could be used as to rationalise and consider further studies related to employee resilience in the future. Pages 257 to 279

The Reconceptualisation of Turkish Identity:  Foreign Policy between Grand Strategy and Pragmatism between 2002 and 2019

Ayman Saleh Al-Barasneha, aPrince Al Hussein Bin Abdullah II School of International Studies,  University of Jordan, Email: aa.albarasneh@ju.edu.jo

Since the AKP ascendancy to power in 2002, Turkey’s foreign policy has been reshaped emphasising a new set of foreign policy tenets. The APK elite has been working assiduously to accentuate Turkey’s geostrategic significance and historical depths to play a more influential regional role based on the mantra of zero problems via pursuing soft power tools and economic interdependencies. This paper provides an in-depth analysis of  Turkish foreign policy and how it interacts with national identity. Moreover, it explains the changing environment in the Middle East and how it impacts on the attitudes and identity of Turkish foreign policy. The study borrows some insights from realist theory to understand the states’ motivations and inspects role theory which provides useful interpretation about changes in participants’ behaviour in foreign policy. This paper argue that domestic politics in Turkey and the changing environment in the Middle East, as shown by Arab uprisings, have turned the Turkish emphasis from soft power to hard instruments built on using military capabilities. Simultaneously, the AKP leadership’s active involvement in the Middle East does not signal a dramatic shift in Turkey’s state identity. Rather, Turkey remains part of  western identity and alliance.

The purpose of this research is to identify and explore various procurement activities for electricity companies in supply chain management and suggest their models. The study discusses the opinions of researchers regarding procurement processes in various countries that are currently warm where they’re more applicable and helps supply chain practitioners assess various procurement activities before it is too late to revise decisions regarding their use in electricity companies. The model was developed based on a systematic mapping study of articles related to procurement, and was examined by semi-structured interviews with state-owned electricity companies that carry out procurement activities. The findings suggest that Procurement Strategy is very important for electricity companies to meet their electricity needs. Proper, fast and efficient procurement will provide a large profit impact for Companies in order to support economic growth. This study is limited by the availability of applied cases. Therefore, it cannot be considered a case study, but rather a literature review followed by a number of interviews. However, it produced a model that forms the basis for further exploratory studies with more empirical data. Pages 469 to 482

Creativity is an important factor when it comes down to engineering designs.  Creativity and engineering complement each other to provide useful yet eye-opening solutions to everyday problems.  Recent research  has indicated that creativity, which happens to be one of the vital skills for  engineers in the 21st century that can be taught and learnt, has reduced significantly over the years. Thus, there is a need for engineering educators to address this  issue by introducing creative thinking as a skill to be acquired by the current generation of engineering undergraduates.  This research paper presents the outcome of a research conducted to improve and enhance the creativity level of local engineering undergraduates at a private institution of higher learning through a Creative Thinking Module that features a number  of creative thinking tools such as Brain sketching, Concept Maps and Morphological Analysis. The Torrance Test of Creative Thinking Figural Forms was applied to measure the creativity level of respondents  in a local Private University. Results indicate that the Reliability of  Creative Thinking Skills Module  is acceptable. Pages 512 to 524

This paper reports the outcome of a study of Malaysian design undergraduates regarding their attitude towards socio-ethical issues in the creative design  industry. The study was carried out in two Universities (University A and University B) in Malaysia, involving 120 design undergraduates. A survey was administered whereby a questionnaire was distributed amongst  respondents to elicit their level of agreement  concerning each statement in the questionnaire. The results of the data analyses show that the attitude of Malaysian design undergraduates  towards socio-ethical issues is low except  for respondents from University A, who have a positive attitude towards environmental and sustainable development issues. This study suggests that a design ethics education model should be introduced in the curriculum of creative industry programs in Malaysian higher education institutions since  no such model or subject is available in the examined institutions.

The digital/electronic document management system (DDMS/EDMS) is a green movement. The implementation of DDMS is absent in some Malaysian public universities especially when focusing on teaching records for auditing purposes. The objective of the present study is to rectify this gap through unfolding the nature, attitude, and acceptance of Malaysian educators towards teaching portfolio (TP) reporting using DDMS. The problem here is the readiness in work shift, along with the technical and facilities supports from the institutions. An adapted questionnaire was distributed to random Malaysian tertiary educators. Descriptive statistics and correlation analysis were used in the analysis process. Findings suggest that the implementation of an electronic version of TP is feasible for Malaysian tertiary educators with more positive than negative impacts. The present study is, therefore concluded with an innovative working model of this digital/electronic teaching portfolio (e-TP) and a users’ scope of e-TP. Pages 680 to 701

Indonesian public administration has undergone a long history since 1945. Many efforts have been committed to enhancing their quality and capacity in the form of policy, institution, or idea. Based on the literature review, this article describes the historical development of Indonesian public administration, which can be seen as a journey of administrative reform. The development is divided into six phases: rationalisation, development administration, administrative improvement, administrative reform, administrative adjustment, and bureaucratic reform. Each stage is characterised by distinctive basic concerns and driven by a specific goal. Along the continuum of Indonesian public administration's history, some basic ideas and similar institutions were created, recreated, and modified. However, the dream to reach the ideal public administration has not been achieved yet. Corruption, bad management, and lack of service-oriented mentality still become the main problems that need to be confronted in the future. In the journey to enter a new historical phase, it is believed that the reform needs to be continued. Pages 723 to 740

Teachers’ Knowledge of Phonological Awareness Levels: A Case of Jordanian EFL Teachers’ Perception

Mohammad Husam Alhumsia*, Anas Ahmad Awwadb, aSaudi Electronic University, Saudi Arabia, bIsra University, Jordan, Email: a*m.husamalhumsi@gmail.combanas.awwad@iu.edu.jo

Phonological awareness is perceived as one of the key building blocks of the development of emerging reading skill. To date, little is known about how phonological awareness instructions can be implemented effectively in EFL classrooms. In Jordan, studies revealed that young readers struggle with English reading development, which represents a challenge to EFL teachers.  Therefore, this study aims at investigating the perception of Jordanian EFL teachers of the knowledge of phonological awareness levels at emerging readers’ stage and identifying the factors that affect teachers’ perception. A cross-sectional questionnaire was used and distributed to a sample of 73 participants at primary private schools in Jordan. Descriptive statistics, independent sample paired t-test and one-way ANOVA were used to analyse the data. The findings revealed a misinterpretation regarding the concepts of phonological awareness and phonics among EFL teachers. The results further revealed that EFL teachers’ perception of phonological awareness was not mediated by their academic qualifications, teaching experience, gender, or age. The findings will be interpreted and discussed, and their pedagogical implications will be finally highlighted. Pages 814 to 832

Marketing can be the heart of a business. E-WOM among its users can be a persuasive tool to encourage users to make purchases especially with social media support, which has become a part of daily life. The purpose of this study is to develop a comprehensive model to investigate the effect of social media marketing and e-WOM on consumer purchase intentions by integrating the elaboration likelihood model (ELM), and the theory of reasoned action (TRA). The analysis technique used is Partial Least Square (PLS). The research findings show that all variables have a direct and significant influence. However, their attachment to E-WOM did not mediate positively and significantly the effect of their attachment to social media marketing on purchase intentions. This means that the intention to make a purchase will be stronger because it is driven by a stronger marketing engagement through social media that serves as a reference for teenagers. This means that their attachment to E-WOM in this study does not have a role as a mediating variable. The results of the analysis are expected to be considered by producers and marketers, to be able to face further competition and can be used as an alternative business development strategy. In fact, for the government, this research is expected to be an input in policy making that drives the pace of economic growth in Bali. Pages 913 to 930

Common mistakes in official communications are among the most important problems that face us in our institutional societies. The present has invaded with its scientific and practical life, but we must employ them to serve our Arabic language, which is the language of the Holy Quran, to be a lifeline seeking to preserve that language on the one hand, and to overcome the difficulties experienced by the employee on the other hand. Thus, this research came to reduce those mistakes that have spread – and noticeably in our official speeches – by creating a program that can diagnose the grammatical, spelling, and linguistic error in those speeches, and then correct them, whether the correction is with one word, a sentence or the full text.

Saleh Alarifia, aAssistant Professor/Management Information Systems, Taif University Taif, Saudi Arabia, Email: as.hamed@tu.edu.sa

DOI: 10.53333/IJICC2013/131178

Strategic management and its factors are among the most important factors affecting the efficiency of business and increasing its competitive advantage among others. One of the most important components of this is the Business Intelligence System (BI). Concern in this regard has always been confined only to the views of senior managers, both in choosing the technology that helps the business to implement its strategic plan and put it in the scope of actual implementation in what works for the benefit and development of the business or regarding the (BI) system and its impact. This neglect of the perspectives of middle managers is the basis for this research, as it should be highlighted unlike researches that have been done before. The main purpose of this study is to evaluate BI systems as viewed by mid-level managers. Finally, this study concluded that from a medium-level perspective, a comprehensive strategic plan model can be made. This study also demonstrated the effectiveness of BI systems in improving the performance of business strategic management. After collecting and analysing data, the researcher found that there is a relationship between organisational alignment and business activities, and a relationship between organisational alignment and the efficiency of the CPM process. However, the researcher did not find possible ways to influence the organisational alignment itself. Pages 987 to 1002

The Living Law in Indonesian Penal Code: A Combination of Legal Certainty and Justice

Hanafi Amrania, aLecturer at Criminal Law Department, Faculty of Law Universitas Islam Indonesia, Yogyakarta, Indonesia, Email: ah.amrani@uii.ac.id

This article considers the question of whether the concept of living law, which is not written, can be accommodated in Indonesian criminal law with the type of written law based on the principle of legality. Many people assume that living law contradicts legality because both have different goals; justice for the former and legal certainty for the latter. I argue that the concept of living law in the Indonesian Penal Code is not at all contrary to legality, but rather combines legal certainty and justice in the Indonesian legal system. They are studied based on aspects of legal substance, legal structure and a legal culture that places living law and criminal law in the right proportion in society. Pages 1030 to 1044

Social and political considerations alone are inadequate to be the basis for pluralist attitudes so as to build relationships between religious communities because conflicts between religious communities still occur. This pluralist attitude needs a theological foundation to be made reliable. The purpose of this study is to explore the thoughts of religious leaders in Malang on the scriptural basis of religious pluralism, the methods of thinking used and the forms of activities applied. The analysis method uses the interview as the source of primary data. Document analysis was also carried out. Twelve religious leaders were the subjects, representing six religions in Malang: Islam, Catholicism, Protestantism, Hinduism, Buddhism and Confucianism. The results of the study showed that the thoughts of religious leaders were divided into two: pluralist and inclusive. There are four models of their thinking methods: privatisation, filtering, hermeneutics and proportionality. The thought of religious pluralism were applied in two forms: doctrine and social activities. The findings of this study are twofold: first, correcting Webber's theory of the relationship of beliefs and deeds; second, a new method called "Patterns of Pluralism Interpretation". Based on this, the research suggests that pluralist verses continue to be socialised and more interfaith social activities have been carried out. Pages 1063 to 1078

This study examines the impact of enterprise resource planning (ERP) technology on retailer satisfaction through internal logistics integration and manufacturing integration. This research was conducted with 135 manufacturers domiciled in East Java, Indonesia. Data collection was carried out using a questionnaire and analysis was performed using SmartPLS. The results showed that ERP technology influence logistics integration. However, ERP technology does not affect manufacturing integration. ERP affects retailer satisfaction. Logistics integration influences manufacturing integration. Logistics integration influences retailer satisfaction. Manufacturing integration affects retailer satisfaction. One of the interesting findings is proof that internal logistics integration mediates the influence of ERP implementation on the retailer. However, manufacturing integration did not mediate the influence of ERP technology on retailer satisfaction. Hence, the ERP technology adopted by a manufacturer affects retailer satisfaction through direct and indirect effects. The results of this study provide an insight for industry practitioners that implement ERP,  an excellent benefit for the company. Pages 1090 to 1104

This article investigates the relationship between corporate social responsibility (CSR) and organisational performance (OP) based on stakeholders' perceptions in small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Adopting a cross-sectional design, a sample of 280 responses was collected using the cluster sampling method. The Partial Least Squares Structural Equation Modelling (PLS-SEM) approach was used to examine collected data. The results showed that eight out of eleven relationships, including customer (on non-financial performance), supplier, community and environment significantly affect OP, except for employee and customer (on financial performance). The overall model indicated a weak positive relationship between CSR and OP. This implies that socially responsible activities as regards supplier, community and environment can improve organisational performance, but not CSR pertaining to customers (on non-financial performance) and employees.

Involving English Teachers in National English Language Policies in the GCC

Hajar Mahfoodha, Shadiya al-Hashmib, aLecturer, University of Bahrain, bAssistant Professor, University of Bahrain,  Email: ahajarm@gmail.com, hakadhem@uob.edu.bh,  bShadia_alhashmi@yahoo.com,  salhashmi@uob.edu.bh

English language teachers in the Cooperation Council for the Arab States of the Gulf (GCC) countries strive to adjust national educational objectives to their classrooms, particularly in Bahrain and the UAE. Most teachers appropriate curricula based on short-term goals entailing a compromise of national policies. Such appropriations stem from different levels of students in the classroom and national policies. Many English language teachers are highly critical of national English language policies, while others argue that such policies are unrealistic because they do not involve English language teachers. This situation results in a gap between national English language policies in theory and implementation in pedagogical practices. This paper proposes that education decision-makers of both Bahrain and the UAE can constructively involve teachers in developing national English language policies that cope with global trends of ELT pedagogy. Involving native Arab teachers in developing education policies is essential to counter current local economic conditions and marketplace challenges, standardise a national policy and preserve the native culture in a globalised world.

This study explored the concerns of student-teachers regarding challenges and strategies in classroom management. It was part of a larger scope of a study concerning the dilemmas that student-teachers faced during teaching practicum. This study used a sequential explanatory mixed method design consisting of two phases: phase one was a quantitative method and the second phase was a qualitative method. The quantitative data were collected using questionnaires and the qualitative data were collected by means of interviews and reflection journals about their experiences in coping with the students’ discipline and compliance. The findings of this study prompt a discussion about the importance of providing the student-teachers with classroom management skills in teacher education, before the teaching practicum. It also highlights the issue of classroom management which involves the shift of focus from managing only the behaviour to both managing the behaviour and learning. Pages 1185 to 1202

An ex post facto method has been used by selecting 24 samples for each cell. The reliability of environmental leadership was .792, the locus of control was .86 and green concrete was .89. The data was analysed by a two-way ANOVA. Research results revealed that there was Green concrete with significant differences between those employers who have employee environmental leadership transformational compared to employee environmental leadership transactional. Moreover, there was a significant interaction between environmental leadership and the locus of control on the application of Green concrete. It could be concluded that the management who perceived environmental leadership as transactional was not always more effective when compared to employee environmental leadership. When it comes to affecting ‘greener’ employment, it depends on mostly internal or external locus of control. Pages 1217 to 1231

It has been 19 years since education autonomy in Indonesia with the aim to improve the quality of education was instigated; however, the results have not been in line with the expectations of the community and the government. This is due, in part, to the principal's job as the education supervisor, which,  given the fact that the supervisor's ability is not in accordance with the expertise of the teachers being supervised, is not maximised. To make the most of the principal’s function as an education supervisor, principals are ready and willing to delegate their duties and responsibilities as well as give autonomy to the coordinators, senior teachers, and teachers who are the experts in their respective field of study. The research design of this study is a quantitative approach using descriptive methods. The results showed: (1) the delegation of tasks, responsibilities and autonomy given to teachers can improve, and develop the behaviour and ability of teachers in creating quality learning systems in schools. (2) The role of teachers as education supervisors in improving the quality of their colleagues is integrated in collegial supervision, and (3) collegial supervision is an effort made by peers in improving and developing teaching and learning in schools, so that quality education is achieved.

This article specifies the close, dominant relationship between renovation, society and literature development. In the Viet Nam renovation period of exchange and integration with the world, there have been many changes. Renovation policies have brought great achievements for Vietnamese society, economy and culture. Renovation in all areas is the basis and the premise for Vietnamese literature renovation. Affirming the renovation of theoretical thinking, literary renovation is indispensable. Vietnamese literature in the early 21st century, with the achievements of literature in the renovation period, has shown the spirit of democracy, freedom of expression, and deep integration into world literature in the context of globalisation. This occurred as a consequence of underlying political factors, socio-cultural situations, the reality of literature and theories, and research and criticism in Vietnam. Using a survey method that examines the achievements in social development, the results of the article indicate the cause of renovations in literature originates from political factors, the socio-cultural situation, as well as literature and theory, research, and criticism of Vietnam.

A Methodological Approach to Judges' Decisions as a Form of Supervision of Judge Behavior by the Supreme Court and the Judicial Commission

Mukti Fajara, aProfessor of Law Faculty, Universitas Muhammadiyah Yogyakarta, Indonesia, Email: amuktifajar_umy@yahoo.co.id

Judges have a noble and burdensome task. They are obliged to examine cases and make decisions in the name of God and justice. Therefore the judge is given power by the constitution to be free and independent, without pressure or influence from anyone. Despite that, the judge is still an imperfect human being and often makes errors. Because of that, internal supervision by the Supreme Court and external supervision by the Judicial Commission are necessary to oversee the professionalism and behaviour of judges. The judge's decision is jurisprudence, which is an open legal doctrine that must be understood through legal logic. That is why academic aspects are needed for it to be more objective and effective. This article proposes the following problem: How is the methodological approach to judgment and decisions of judges based on legal logic, as an effort to supervise between the Supreme Court and the Judicial Commission on the behaviour of judges? The research applied the normative juridical method by studying the principles and theories of law and legislation related to the supervision of judges in Indonesia. The findings show that to conduct joint supervision between the Supreme Court and the Judicial Commission on the professionalism and behaviour of judges, a breakthrough is needed by carrying out a methodological approach and academic analysis of the judges' judgment and decisions. The results of the analysis of the judge's decision are not to overturn the judge's decision, but to indicate the existence of fairness, oddity, or deviation from the judge's behaviour objectively and effectively.

Nuclear Crimes in Peaceful Fields

Humans seek, through scientific capabilities and technological development to use nuclear energy as an alternative energy to traditional sources. This is as a result of its efficiency and its high capacity for generation in all fields. There is no doubt that scientific development must have a dark side, which represents the negative effects of that use and that nuclear energy has uses in the peaceful field. But as a result of the use of nuclear energy, there are crimes and acts that may inflict interests protected by law of serious and grave harm. Therefore, we see legislation that has enacted laws to address some of these problems, even though its treatment needs a broader view of the seriousness of the issue. This includes Egyptian legislation such as Law No. 59 of 1960 in the matter of organising work with Egyptian ionising radiation, as well as international agreements such as the Convention on the Physical Protection of Nuclear Material of 1980, and the International Convention for the Suppression of Acts of Nuclear Terrorism of 2005.

Consonant Lenition among Speakers of Arabic

Jumanah Shakeeb mohammad Taqia, aCollege of education for Women, Iraqia University, Iraq, Email: ajumanah.taqi@aliraqia.edu.iq

English has become the language of communication in almost all countries particularly for trade, business and educational purposes. English is thus taught as a second or foreign language. Efforts are made to teach the native accent, yet, the teachers who teach are also non-native. Most of the communication that takes place in English in non-native countries is among non-native speakers. Hence, a dialect of English is created which is influenced by the native language of each country. Hundreds of non-native dialects are currently in development. Lenition is a weakening of certain sounds in continuously. The influence of the mother tongue affects the sounds of Arabic speakers while using English. This paper studies examples of lenition from Arabic speech of teacher-student conversations and investigates how far it does or does not affect overall communication. The researcher has analysed selected conversational passages to study consonant lenition in Arabic speech. It was concluded that Iraqi speakers of English do conform to some patterns of lenition, but differ in some patterns from native English speakers. The overall communication is not affected.

To this day, the indigenous community is stigmatised as an obstacle to development. In reality, indigenous peoples are marginalised in the development process because the government has not yet fully recognised their rights. This research is juridical-normative research, in which it aims to identify the importance of free, prior, and informed consent (FPIC) in land acquisition law for indigenous communities and to understand the problem of public consultation on customary land and find solutions to these problems. Land acquisition law for public use in Indonesia is inseparable from FPIC. One of the new nomenclatures that come together with the Land Acquisition Law is a public consultation, where the mechanism of public consultation is fundamental to build public participation. Based on this research, it is found that there is a contradiction in the manifestation of the principle of consent in the positive law of land acquisition in Indonesia. The author offers the ideal concept of public consultation in FPIC-based land acquisition. This concept will help to provide more substantive justice to indigenous communities whose land is the object of land acquisition. Pages 1360 to 1374

This study aims to explain women's political participation and public leadership. Two main points are discussed. The problem of women's political participation in public leadership is indeed full of twists and turns. Various obstacles, ranging from cultural factors, religion, and others, are still barriers for women to participate in public leadership. This study uses qualitative methods that are naturalistic and descriptive by obtaining data through various secondary sources. The results of the study showed that women were able to compete on par with men. In leadership, also between men and women, there are substantial differences. However, women have the advantage in leading because; they have the ability to persuade, have a lower level of ego, do not eliminate firmness, flexibility and considerate work ethic, and are able to lead with empathy and willingness to take risks.

Sustainable development is a collaboration between the government, private sector, and the community that is carried out with the concept of participation because the community is an entity that exists in an area that together seeks to realise social welfare. One of the problems faced in the environmental field is the problem of abrasion and damage to mangrove ecosystems along 46.5 km, and it is included in the critical category spread in five districts in Bengkalis Regency. Therefore through the Green Jewel Program, the local community cooperates with PT. Pertamina RU II Production of Sungai Pakning to rehabilitate mangrove forests. This type of research is Mixed Method, which is a collaboration between qualitative and quantitative approaches with an emphasis on qualitative and quantitative methods as a reinforcement of qualitative findings and data collection through interviews, surveys, observations, literature studies and focus group discussions (FGD). The findings of this study indicate that the level of sustainability of the Permata Hijau CSR Program of PT. Pertamina RU II River Pakning in the mangrove area in a multi-dimensional category is less sustainable. This is because of the Permata Hijau CSR program of PT. Pertamina RU II Sungai Pakning is still oriented towards the social and technological dimensions and ignores the ecological, economic and institutional dimensions. Pages 1399 to 1422

The Social Role of Graffiti of Protesters of 2019

Saba Qais Al-Yassirya, aCollege of Education, University of Kufa, Najaf, Iraq, Email: asaba.abdulhussein@uokufa.edu.iq

Artistic achievements over time have links to the human being and his basic needs. Freedom and demanding rights are among the most important human needs. What happened in Tahrir Square in the centre of the Iraqi capital, Baghdad, was a cry of freedom and an expression of my opinion with drawings simulating events. On political and social life, close to the Monument of Freedom, youthful cartoons were embodied in a peaceful manner that raises controversy through artistic expressions in contemporary formulations that challenge reality. As a result of repression and fear of losing documenting these drawings, the study attempted to document this special period in the life of Iraq, which demonstrated the culture of this generation and their awareness of their rights and duties towards the homeland. It is evident in the graffiti there is a cultural and artistic awareness and a clear interest in the cultural heritage. Through analysing the models, there is a focus on basic concepts indicating the maturity of the demonstrators and their awareness by emphasizing the martyr through the icon of the revolution (Safaa al-Saray) and the white shirt to denote peace and the student majority for the revolution. The emergence of marginalized or poor strata of society in the common struggle. Pages 1423 to 1441

The second half of the 20th century has witnessed significant relation between Turkey and Israel. They have started by the Turkish recognition in the state of Israel after its establishment in 1949. Then, there is diplomatic exchange and culture ties and economic Co-operation. This reached the climax in the last decade of the 20th century between 1996-1997 when both parties have signed many agreements in the military and security field as well as exchanging intelligence expert and military manoeuvres. No doubt, these ties reaching this level has affected negatively on the ration of turkey with its neighbouring state Iran from its side has considered the Turkish-Israeli alliance might threaten directly its national security although there is a continuation of political and economic rations, taking into consideration not to raise problems on level of officials and in return Israel still looks at the development of relations between Turkey and the Arab states may affect negatively on its national and regional security and at the sometime Israel tries not to deepen the relations between Iran from one side and Syria and  Lebanon from anther.

The Historical Route of Puppets Arts Experience in Iraq

Zainab abd al-Ameer Ahmeda, aUniversity of Baghdad - College of Fine Arts,

Throughout the ages, the importance of puppets arts comes from the importance of the puppet. Its first function appears by using it in pagan religious rituals and magic. The puppet has a series of functional changing. It has played different political, social, and cultural roles, by that it became out of religious field and entered the artistic field. Therefore, types of puppets arts play big roles in the different fields of life. The researcher has limited the problem of this research as that, the real existence of puppets arts in Iraq has a great deal of weakness and obscurity. As well as the specialists in this field have fogginess intellectual views, whether they are in the governmental foundations or not, and whether they have a direct contact with the puppets arts or not. The researcher has also found a clear weakness in formal and scientific documentations of the artistic efforts that have done for puppets arts. This weakness comes from the lack of awareness in dealing with these arts by describing them, as effective arts like all other arts that have the specialists' interest. Moreover, there are very limited scientific researches that shed light on these efforts by analyzing their accuracies and amounts, especially those researches about puppets arts in Iraq. This research depends on historical analysis to describe puppets arts in Iraq during the period 1954-2017. The results show that the developing of these arts in Iraq have four phases according to artistic and educational levels, which are as the following: 1.Initiatives phase (1955-1966) 2. Establishing phase(1967-1979) 3.Recession and hesitating phase(1980-2000) 4. Renaissance and dedication phase(2003-2017). The most important suggestion of this research is to dedicate the enlightenment of the puppets arts by specialists in the formal foundation, especially Ministry of education, ministry of culture, ministry of higher education, and official media institution. As well as building national center for puppet arts in Baghdad, and establishing sub-centers for it in all cities. Puppets arts should treat as main subjects in institutes and colleges of fine arts in Iraq. Official Theatrical foundation should make for puppets arts and it can add to department of cinema and theater or department of the child's culture, and foundation of festivals specializing in puppets arts whether in theater or in cinema.

Many learning models are designed to strengthen students' cognitive structures, however, none have used the right strategy. This study, therefore, aims to fill this gap by using the advanced organiser model (AO) and different cognitive styles (CS) as moderator variables. The quantitative approach, quasi-experimental, and the pretest-posttest non-equivalent 2x2 factorial designs were used to obtain data from 38 students divided into two small groups according to their cognitive style. Both groups were treated by administering teaching for four meetings, with the ANOVA used to analyse data and test hypotheses. The results showed that the subjects who were given the comparative organiser and a Field Dependent cognitive style (FD) achieved better and higher communication skills, respectively, with significant interactions between various types of advance organiser models.

The astrolabe was a very important instrument used by astronomers and navigators in every civilisation for centuries. It became more famous at the peak of Islamic astronomy during the Golden Age of the Islamic civilisation, as an instrument to show direction and time in the fields of astronomy and navigation. However, later it became less known and is increasingly forgotten. Hence, the purpose of this paper is to review the continuity of this legacy of the Islamic Golden Age, through the study of the astrolabe in Malaysia, specifically in astrofiqh and STEM education. This research has a qualitative approach using document analysis, observation and interview methods. Research results find that knowledge of astrolabe is increasingly abandoned and its use becomes more irrelevant in view of a variety of sophisticated and modern inventions. However, there are efforts to gradually increase knowledge of the astrolabe. This scenario should be given attention in order to continue efforts to restore the legacy of the Golden Age of the past Islamic Civilisation, in addition to maintaining the supremacy of the astrolabe as the basis of developing current digital instruments of astronomy.

Amer Dayekh Obaida, Ali Mohammed Thijeelb*, aPHD Candidate at Post-Graduate Institute for Accounting & Financial Studies, Baghdad University, Iraq, bA.PHD Department of Accounting studies, Post-Graduate Institute for Accounting & Financial Studies, Baghdad University, Iraq, Email: b*ali.mamouri@yahoo.com

Forensic accounting aims to employ accounting information in the judiciary and financial advisory fields in order to meet the needs of the judiciary regarding financial irregularities and the need of investors, shareholders, lenders and tax and supervisory authorities for  accurate information.  Forensic accounting techniques can thus be used to face the challenges and risks faced by organisations. The research  aims to set  recommendations, the most important of which is the necessity of developing the role of the forensic accountant in supporting forensic proceedings related to commercial disputes as an expert witness by organising provisions and rules in legal texts consistent with the nature of the work of forensic accounting to avoid and ward off risks. In addition, the study urges  forensic experts to show the required characteristics and features of  forensic accountants, as well as the developed country, and the necessity of possessing the basic and desirable skills that a forensic accountant should master. These factors are considered in addition to mastering the software tools and encouraging membership in professional organisations interested in forensic accounting in developed countries.

Development of VAT Sanction Regulations in Light of Polish and EU law

Wojciech Maruchina, aUniversity of Economics and Human Sciences in Warsaw, Poland.

The subject of the conducted research is the development of sanction regulations  in light of Polish and EU law. Sanction regulations  were innovative elements introduced to the Act of 8 January 1993 on the value added tax and excise duty, which, due to the high budgetary significance of both taxes, became the most important substantive Polish tax law passed in connection with the reform of the Polish tax system. In the course of the analyses, changes in VAT sanction regulations  were indicated by considering the subsequent questions: 1. What was the reason for the changes made to these regulations in the period preceding Poland’s accession to the EU? 2. What was the impact of EU law and case law of the EU Court of Justice on Polish sanction regulations  before and after Poland's accession to the EU? 3. Were there other reasons for the implemented changes and what did they entail? As a research method, an analysis of normative material, views presented in legal doctrine and in case law of the Constitutional Tribunal (CT) and the EU Court of Justice was adopted. Development of VAT sanction regulations  in the period preceding Poland’s accession to the EU was caused by the scope and frequency of violations of instrumental tax obligation committed by taxpayers. The second reason for changes in the content of the examined regulations was the influence of case law of the Constitutional Tribunal which sought to designate the limits for the application of tax sanctions. The third factor contributing to the changes in sanction regulations  was   case law of the EU Court of Justice, which is a crucial part of acquis communautaire. Pages 125 to 142

Conditions of Internationalisation of Foreign Service Enterprises in the Polish Market

Robert Nowackia, aUniversity of Economics and Human Sciences in Warsaw Okopowa 59, 01-043 Warsaw, Poland, Email: ar.nowacki@vizja.pl

The characteristic feature of the contemporary economic reality is growing internationalisation of enterprises. This applies to all sectors, including  the service sector. Of  key importance in the process of internationalisation of service enterprises are the motives impelling businesses to undertake expansion to foreign markets, as well as the factors (criteria) serving the evaluation and comparison of the target markets. The aim of the article is to analyse the determinants affecting the propensity of foreign service entities to undertake expansion into the Polish market and the strategies undertaken in this field,  as well as to identify the key sources of competitive advantage taking place at the enterprises in question. The grounds for deliberations in the article are findings of the research carried out in 2017, among managers of 153 foreign service enterprises operating in the Polish market, of different sizes and scopes of activity. In this article, the author focused on two issues: evaluation of the factors describing the Polish market from the point of view of their impact on the propensity to run their activities therein, as well as identification of the sources of competitive edge used by foreign service entities. The findings of the conducted research show a positive perception by foreign service enterprises of a prevailing majority of the factors characterising the Polish market. And there are no significant differences between the appraisals made by individual categories of enterprises. In this research, the author identified fourteen sources of competitive edge of foreign service enterprises in Poland. The key one is professionalism in customer service. An important role is also played by brand and accompanying reputation, as well as promptness of customer service and efficacy of marketing measures, mainly promotional ones. Pages 143 to 156

Nowadays, health profession educational programs should implement inter-professional education curricula in order to improve health outcomes. Values, roles and responsibilities and communication are important aspects of inter-professional healthcare collaboration, but it still becomes a challenge. However, studies on the implementation of  inter-professional education curriculums in Indonesia are still limited. Therefore, this study aimed to analyse the effect of values and roles and responsibilities to health professional students’ communication on inter-professional education. This study applies an observational cross-sectional study, which involves four universities located in Central Java province and Yogyakarta special region - Indonesia. A total of 970 health professional students from medical, nursing, midwifery, and nutrition programs took part in the study. Data were collected using student perceptions of inter-professional education instruments. Multiple logistic regression analysis is used for data analysis. The results show that there is no significant effect between types of the study program with communication on inter-professional education. It is very important to strengthen values and roles and responsibilities in order to improve students' communication in inter-professional education. The  educational programs of the health professions should emphasise values and roles and responsibilities when designing inter-professional education curricula. Pages 157 to 170

Sri Sularti Dewanti Handayania, aEarly Childhood Teacher Education, Faculty of Education Science Universitas Negeri Semarang, Email: adewanti@mail.unnes.ac.id

The scientific approach is a scientific method in learning activities which includes the observation, questioning, gathering information, reasoning, and communication. Regarding the scientific approach, which began to be implemented following the enactment of the Curriculum of 2013 about Early Childhood Education, it is a necessary to change the basic concept of thought in the learning process. Through a scientific approach, it is expected to develop scientific, logical, and critical thinking and is objective in both the teacher and the children. The problem which was highlighted in this study was that there are still many various incorrect concepts of the implementation of scientific approaches in the learning process at Early Childhood educational institutions. As a result, the students themselves also did not have a full understanding about the implementation of the scientific approach in the learning process in such institutions. Therefore, this study aimed to analyse students' understanding of the scientific approach to the learning process at Early Childhood educational institutions. The method used in this research is the descriptive quantitative approach. The data collection was done by questionnaire and documentation. The number of samples in this study were 29 students chosen by the purposive sampling technique. The data analysis was presented by using a quantitative descriptive design. The results showed that students in the Teacher Education for Early Childhood Education Department had knowledge related to the scientific approach concept with a score of 62.07 per cent (intermediate level of understanding), knowledge related to the planning process of a scientific approach learning with a score of 65.52 per cent (intermediate level of understanding), and knowledge related to the implementation of the scientific approach with a score of 48.28 per cent (intermediate level of understanding).

Analysis of Symbolic Violence Practices in Balinese Vernacular Architecture: A case study in Bali, Indonesia

Ngakan Ketut Acwin Dwijendraa, I Putu Gede Suyogab, aUdayana University, Bali, Indonesia, bSekolah Tinggi Desain Bali, Indonesia, Email: aacwin@unud.ac.id,  bgsuyoga@std-bali.ac.id

This study debates the vernacular architecture of Bali in the Middle Bali era, which was strongly influenced by social stratification discourse. The discourse of social stratification is a form of symbolic power in traditional societies. Through discourse, the power practices of the dominant group control the dominated, and such dominance is symbolic. Symbolic power will have an impact on symbolic violence in cultural practices, including the field of vernacular architecture. This study is a qualitative research with an interpretive descriptive method. The data collection is completed from literature, interviews, and field observations. The theory used is Pierre Bourdieu's Symbolic Violence Theory. The results of the study show that the practice of symbolic violence through discourse on social stratification has greatly influenced the formation or appearance of residential architecture during the last six centuries. This symbolic violence takes refuge behind tradition, the social, and politics. The forms of symbolic violence run through the mechanism of doxa, but also receive resistance symbolically through heterodoxa. Pages 184 to 194

The Influence of Internal Factors and Motivation on the Decision to Enter Entrepreneurship

Nurul Ain Atiqah Zarharia, Muaz Azinuddinb*, Wan Mohd Adzim Wan Mohd Zainc, Nur Shahirah Mior Shariffuddind, a,b,c,dFaculty of Applied Social Sciences, Gong Badak Campus, Universiti Sultan Zainal Abidin, 21300, Kuala Nerus, Terengganu, Malaysia, Email: b*muazazinuddin@unisza.edu.my

Entrepreneurship is widely acknowledged as the best development strategy in achieving economic prosperity in the shape of growth and competitiveness. This explains why many countries, including Malaysia, are working intensively with relevant stakeholders, such as educational institutions, to encourage entrepreneurship participation among their people. The importance of educational institutions in transforming graduates from being government-dependent to being self-employed, is further heightened given that Malaysia is heavily beleaguered by unemployment issues. Based on this premise, it is the aim of this study to analyse the impacts of entrepreneurial skills, knowledge, and attitudes, as well as motivation on the decision to enter entrepreneurship among undergraduates of Terengganu’s public higher learning institutions. A quantitative approach was used, carried out through the face-to-face distribution of questionnaires. Utilising convenience sampling, 290 usable questionnaires were subsequently analysed through the adoption of descriptive, regression, and mediating analyses. The results revealed that entrepreneurial skills have a higher unique significant contribution to the decision to enter entrepreneurship compared to entrepreneurial attitudes. Importantly, motivation is found to have a significant partial mediation effect on the relationships between entrepreneurial skills and attitudes and the decision to enter entrepreneurship. Drawing on the series of statistical procedures conducted, this paper provides empirical evidences that are of importance to the relevant stakeholders, especially in the context of formulating tailored policies for tackling the unemployment rates in Malaysia.

The Role of the Hallyu Phenomenon in Shaping a Destination Image among Malaysian Adolescents

Farah Hidayah Mohd Zainia, Muaz Azinuddinb*, Nur Shahirah Mior Shariffuddinc, Wan Mohd Adzim Wan Mohd Zaind, a,b,c,dFaculty of Applied Social Sciences, Gong Badak Campus, Universiti Sultan Zainal Abidin, 21300, Kuala Nerus, Terengganu, Malaysia, Email: b*muazazinuddin@unisza.edu.my

Hallyu refers to the surge of global visibility of popular Korean cultural products, such as Korean entertainment including music, television (TV) shows, dramas and films, cuisine, and fashion. The commodification of these products by the Korean Government to sustain and strengthen their culture worldwide has led to the emergence of Korea as one of the top tourism destinations in the world. However, the exponential growth of the country’s broadcasting and entertainment industry appears to greatly impact the values and ways of life among people, especially adolescents. Given the scarcity of tourism studies that investigate this impact, it is the aim of this research to analyse the mediating role of the idolisation of celebrities among adolescents in the State of Terengganu, Malaysia on the Korean music, TV shows and dramas, and the destination image. The data was collected through convenience sampling, where 301 usable questionnaires were subsequently analysed using descriptive, regression, and mediating analyses. It can be reported that both music, and television shows and dramas have a statistically significant relationship with the idolisation and the destination image. This is also the case in the context of the relationship between idolisation and the destination image. Interestingly, idolisation does not have the mediating impact on both independent variables and the destination image. These empirical results provide valuable insights to relevant stakeholders for the purpose of the strategic marketing of cultural products abroad and through the improvement of national brand value.

Kusbianbtoa, Ayu Trisna Dewib, Mahadi Oloan Sitanggangc, a,bFaculty of Law, Universitas Darmawangsa, Medan-Indonesia, cDharmawangsa Law Office, Medan-Indonesia

Brand name or trademarks as the property rights of companies are often consumed in Indonesian Courts as commercial conflicts. Any decision of the courts on a brand name might support or not support industrial protection in Indonesia. This paper was conducted to seek the effectiveness of Indonesian Law number 20 of 2016 of property law to support industry in Indonesia. A qualitative approach was conducted to collect data and analyse the effectiveness of Indonesian law from the high consumption of brand name disputes in the courts. The data collection comprised the case of trademarks between J. Casanova and Casano. The Supreme Court decided the winner in the Number 197PK/Pdt.Sus-HKI/2018, and has used Law Number 20 of 2016 concerning trademarks and geographical indications, where decisions at the District Court and Cassation level still use Law Number 15 of 2001 regarding brands.

Malaysia is a country with diversity of culture and heritage. Subsequently it possesses varied traditional musical arts. One of the instruments of Malaysian traditional musical arts is the kompang, which has been played since the period of the Malacca Malay Sultanate. Nonetheless, the playing of this instrument has been decreasing among the community of late. Only passionate and interested parties such as art institutions, and cultural and arts agencies are still striving in upholding the arts of this traditional heritage. To foster the arts of this tradition, it needs to be nurtured from a young age. Therefore, a study was conducted to identify the functions of Kompang from an ethnomusicology view and children’s musical learning achievement by using Kompang. A library analysis method and statistical method have been adopted during field data collection. The study was carried out in a Malaysian primary school involving 70 children aged nine. This study was conducted for 12 weeks, including the practical tests in week 1 and week 12. Results show that the functions of kompang are as a welcoming instrument, entertainment, vocal accompaniment, communication, aesthetic arts, education and unity agent. The children’s achievement using the kompang showed a significant improvement from the pre-test to the post-test scores. The results of this research are expected to provide information about kompang as Malay traditional music instrument, which needs to be preserved in this modern era. As kompang fits to be a tool in music learning, it brings a new perspective to all music educators to integrate kompang as an effective teaching aid. Furthermore, it is a traditional musical instrument that should be duly appreciated and maintained by the whole community. Pages 275 to 292

Increased digital participation adds new momentum to the economy and changes the nature of business. The gaming industry has become a large industry in China, and this industry has not developed independently. The development and innovation in the ICT ecosystem influences the development and innovation of the gaming industry. This investigation follows the ICT layer model by using Meta-frontier analysis to estimate and analyse the innovation in the gaming industry of China. The change in the technology gap ratio (TGR) is utilised to measure innovation in the gaming industry. The decrease in technical efficiency brings an increase in the technology gap ratio which alludes that some companies have shifted the production function upward due to technological innovation. Similarly, an increase in technical efficiency can be understood as the diffusion of innovation by imitation of competitors. The steady increase in meta-frontier efficiency explains that the gaming industry of China is growing by innovation.  This study has significant position in frontier studies by explaining the production process in a distinctive way which has previously been ignored.

The construction industry in Indonesia is governed by sets of rules and regulations that seek to ensure the establishment of high-quality, durable, and cost-efficient infrastructures, while eliminating the problem of construction failures. The laws analysed in this article, including the Construction Services Act, were scrutinised to determine their effectiveness in creating legally binding obligations between clients, employees, and financiers. This presentation will put forth critical analyses of issues that have been identified as influencing the capability of the Construction Service Development Board to promote the best practices within the sector. The main tools for primary data collection in this descriptive study included questionnaires, focus group discussions, and workshop interactions. Intensive data analyses revealed that uneducated workforces dominated the construction industry. Inexperienced workers were not conversant with the country's legal standards of quality structures. Therefore, the recommended practices centred on restructuring the composition of the construction industry to focus more on education, consultancy certification, training, and capacity-building.

The Implementation of Death Sentences in the Indonesian Legal System

Ahmad Yani 114, Surabaya, Jawa Timur 60231, Indonesia, Email: a*sulaksono@unitomo.ac.id

This study examined the implementation of the death sentence in the Indonesian legal system. The implementation of capital punishment has sparked mixed reactions with proponents noting its significance in the maintenance of law and order while the opponents cite its violation of the right to life. A normative research design enabled its investigation into the research problem from multiple perspectives. The literature examined included secondary research journals and books published within the past five years. The findings reveal that, while the death penalty has elicited increased opposition across the social scene, the Indonesian legal system still embraces the practice with the primary objective of curbing crimes and protecting the rights of citizens.  The key areas upon which the death penalty law has been applied comprise murder and drug trafficking cases, which the government seeks to quell. Opponents on the other hand argue that the implementation of the practice constitutes a violation of inalienable human rights and should be stopped. The study concludes that despite the strong opposition against the implementation of the death penal code, it enables the state to contain crime, and shield the citizens from practices that could have adverse effects.

After their founding. the two neighbouring countries of modern Iraq and Turkey faced many economic problems. The phenomenon of customs smuggling may be the most prominent of the problems suffered by the economies of the two countries. This phenomenon has expanded, spread, and worsened, resulting in bad returns, wasted money, and significant repercussions on the economies of the two countries. There is no independent academic study on what this phenomenon is, nor the reasons for its spread and the ways to combat it in this era of history. Thus, this study came to be entitled, "The Phenomenon of Customs Smuggling Between Iraq and Turkey during the period 1921-1958: A Documented Historical Study." After collecting the scientific material from its sources, three investigations were conducted. Preceded by an introduction and followed by a conclusion, we first discussed the phenomenon of customs smuggling between Iraq and Turkey during the period 1921-1958. Second, we examined the motives for smuggling and the reasons for its spread between the two countries during the period 1921-1958. And third, we examined smuggled goods and the goods between the two countries during the period 1921-1958. The conclusion summarised the results of the study. Pages 363 to 377

Green human resource management focuses on the awareness of a corporation in interacting with environmental issues, together with the management of the social and economic well-being of the corporation and its workforce. The aim of this research is to investigate the understanding, appreciation and continuous application of sustainable green practices in the working environment by the current workforce in manufacturing companies. Approximately 250 samples were collected from authorised listed manufacturing companies in Malaysia. The response rate was more than 50% using the Convenience-Sampling Method. The results show that the management of green human resources plays a significant role in the actions of Organisational Citizenship Behaviour towards the Environment (OCBE) in the current workforce towards sustainable performance in manufacturing industries. Corporations should understand that green management is one of the key methods by which they can secure their legitimacy and continued operation through their core vision. By developing their human capital along with the use of best practices across the organisation, corporations are striving to ensure that their business operations are as efficient as possible, thereby reducing potential harm to the environment.

Purpose – To identify the importance of formal and informal networks in business learning through the profiles of entrepreneurs and SMTEs. Design/methodology/approach – Descriptive analysis was conducted to compare the characteristics of entrepreneurs and SMTEs across the four-different tourism sub-sectors of hotels and resorts, travel agencies, handicrafts and restaurants. Mann-Whitney U and Kruskal-Wallis were performed to differentiate entrepreneurs and SMTEs that preferred formal or informal networks as an important source of knowledge. Findings – The distinctive characteristics of entrepreneurs and SMTEs from the inter-sectoral perspective manifest in 7 different dimensions. Years of previous working experience was found to have a statistically significant relationship with the importance of informal networks in SMTEs learning. This contrasts with the 6 dimensions of characteristics of entrepreneurs and SMTEs that have statistically significant relationships with the importance of formal networks.  Practical implications – The findings can be used as a crucial framework to develop and enhance training programmes and policies that cultivate networking and learning behaviours among entrepreneurs. Originality/value – This study is the first to provide empirical linkages between the characteristics of entrepreneurs and SMTEs and networks through a tourism inter-sectoral perspective in Terengganu, Malaysia.

This study attempts to explore the strategic framework on the process of building social capital through investment in corporate social responsibility for zakat management organisations. An in-depth interview with twelve executives from five zakat organisations in Zanzibar was undertaken for this project. This qualitative investigation utilised thematic analysis techniques to come out with themes that were implemented for this study. The findings revealed that the provision of public education and services and social commitment with positive and attractive behaviours are useful ways to enhance corporate social responsibility and stimulate the social capital of zakat organisations. The researchers have recognised that there is a gap of knowledge in this area, therefore, these findings have made a significant contribution to the existing body of literature and invite more studies to elucidate the situation. Moreover, quantitative research is required to test and measure items revealed from this study's findings. Pages 450 to 463

There is a close correlation between the extent of corruption in a country and the level of development and services in it. In a country like Iraq, which is very late in ranking the most corrupt countries in the world, this is reflected in poor services and the standard of living of its citisens. This research discusses the most important financial and administrative aspects of corruption in one of the most important aspects of executive work, which is public procurement which accounts for the largest percentage of the financial budgets of this country. This study attempts to review the most prominently applied cases that occur when government agencies exercise their activities in the field of purchasing goods and services. The study also deals with these aspects at every stage of the contract, which leads to the conclusion of contracts that are marred by imbalance and complicity. This results in sometimes being unable to achieve their purpose of providing goods and services with high efficiency and appropriate prices, as well as determining the criminal consequences of the perpetrators of the violations.

Administrative Interrogation: A Comparative Study

Waleed Khashan Zughaira*, Hanadi Fawzi Husseinb, a,bUniveristy of Thi-Qar/ College of Law, Email: a*Waleedkashankw11@yahoo.com

Administrative interrogation is a formal guarantee prior to imposing penalties including striking, issuing warnings, and salary deductions.  This is mentioned by the legislator as an exception, because the general rule is that the administration must achieve written editorial control with the employee through the formation of an investigative committee, and it has, as an exception, recourse to these. Since the administrative interrogation is considered an exception from the original, it is not permissible to expand it by imposing other disciplinary penalties that differ from those specified by the legislator exclusively. In the event that this happens, the administrative decision becomes defective in form and procedures, which makes it deserve nullity. The administrative interrogation differs from the interrogation carried out by the investigative committee in the administrative investigation. This is because the administrative interrogation is a stand-alone procedural method. The legislator has the choice, in certain cases,  to oversee the administration between the investigation or the interrogation, provided that the results of the interrogation are represented by the employee’s conviction of the charges attributed.  The employee must be punished with specific penalties, namely, (striking, issuing a warning, or salary deduction).

The Development of Educational Services in the Al Qadisiya Subdistrict in Najaf, ‘‘Al Ashraf’’ Governorate, Iraq.

Mohammed Jawad Abbas Shabaaa, Ahmed Yhya Abd Abasb, Ali Lefta Saeedc, a,b,cUniversity of Kufa, College of Art , Department of Geography,  P.O Box 21, Kufa, Najaf Governorate, Iraq

Primary education is one of the important services in the prosperity and development of society. Therefore, it must meet a set of criteria such as the optimum distribution of educational institutions and be sufficient in numerical terms in comparison with population sizes. Primary education must also be functionally efficient in comparison to the standards prepared by the relevant authorities. This study attempts to diagnose the reality of the state of primary education in Al-Qadisiyah district in the Najaf governorate, and its compatibility with the planning standards prepared by the Ministries of Education and Planning and follow the best possible methods and mechanisms for their development. This study    established that the population of the study area totalled 46,813 people in 2018. As for the population growth rate, it reached 3.2%, which is a high rate resulting from the rural nature of the region. The number of primary schools in the study area reached 38 schools, while the number of buildings allocated to them reached 31 buildings only, with a difference of 7 buildings, which resulted in the phenomenon of duplication in school hours . The decrease in the percentage of primary schools in the district centre compared to the countryside is due to the large area of the countryside and the increase in its population. This was reflected in the increase in the number of students enrolled.  The number of primary schools for males and females is close, which is a good indicator that reflects the equality situation in giving learning opportunities for both sexes. It turned out that the indicator (number of pupils/school) was less than the approved standard. The researchers witnessed the convergence of the value of the index (pupil/division) and (pupil/teacher) with the schematic criterion. This is a positive indicator that facilitates the delivery of information to students. Qadisiyah, according to the 2030 Population Estimates, does not need additional primary schools according to the educational planning standard. The study ends with a number of recommendations and proposals, such as the redistribution of primary schools in the countryside of the study area and attention to basic services in primary schools so that you can provide a good service to students.

The Saudi Version of the Gifted and Talented Checklist for Parents: An Instrument for Rating the Characteristics of Gifted Kindergarten Children

Moneerah Mohammad AlMeraba, Salaheldin Farah Attallah  Bakhietb, aAssociate Professor / Department of Education and Psychology/ College of Education / Princess Nourah Bint Abdulrahman University, bProfessor / Department of Special Education / College of Education / King Saud University

Early identification of gifted children is a major trend in contemporary education. However, there is a noticeable paucity of tools for identifying gifted kindergarten children in Saudi Arabia and other Arab countries. Furthermore, there is a paucity of tools to assess parents’ views of their children’s giftedness. The present study was therefore conducted to develop a Saudi version of the gifted and talented checklist for parents. The study aimed to adapt the gifted and talented checklist for parents and establish its validity and reliability in the Saudi environment. The checklist was translated, adapted, and validated by a cohort of experts in gifted education, assessment and evaluation, and educational psychology. Discriminative, construct, and factorial validity of the checklist were established. Its reliability was also established by internal consistency and split-half methods. The study recommended that the checklist be used for identifying gifted children in the target population. Pages 542 to 565

Assessment of Bank Credit Risk: An Analytical Study of the Saudi Paper Manufacturing Company

Zeyad Najm Abeda, aAL-Imam AL-Kadhim (S.A) University college/ Department of Administration and Economics/Iraq, Email: aZaid201919@gmail.com

The credit score pastime is of super significance and brilliant importance in the achievement of the banking monetary institutions, due to the fact the results of their business rely to a large extent on the quality and length of their credit score portfolio. Therefore these economic banking institutions need to direct most of their assets closer to the control, manipulation and observation of the credit score portfolio; the credit score selection-making relies upon, to a point, excellent records and monetary statistics. Evaluation and contrast of these statistics and facts is historically linked with commercial requirements, comparable companies and analysis of the opportunity of the projects failure.

This paper discusses the dependence of the contact person on the ideologies and submission to the directions of political money for the purpose of defending the political direction of the institution or distorting the image of the other, or relying on the method of buying receivables in the media. It views the reliance of the contact person on communicating with the political money tools in order to communicate with the leaders of the political blocs, or the media focus in raising issues related to political blocs, as well as relying on the self-image in the media marketing of political leaders. The effects of political money have been reshaping the collective consciousness of the public and establishing exclusionary thought, as well as flattening consciousness and creating a preoccupation with entertainment. There are forms of political money pressures, most notably political defamation and blackmail, as well as those aimed at improving the mental image of politicians. The most important manifestations of the change in the work of the communications operator in the satellite channels are represented by the discrepancy between media practice and legal legislation. There are influences on media work in covering events of conflicts and demonstrations, represented by pressure from armed groups and political parties, and then pressure from legislative bodies and human rights organisations, as well as personal relationships with information sources.

A New Perspective on Relations between Islam and Democracy in Indonesia

Muhammad Azhara, Ahmad Sahideb, Mega Hidayatic, Hasse. Jd, a,b,c,dUniversity of Muhammadiyah Yogyakarta, Indonesia, Email: amuazar@yahoo.com, bahmasahideumy@gmail.com, cmega.hidayati@umy.ac.id,  dpraktisi_99@yahoo.com

Islam and Democracy are two debatable concepts in the Islamic field. Islam is interpreted as a transcendental divine concept, at the same time the concept of Democracy is secular-immanent. The dialectics of Islam and Democracy are interesting when Indonesian Muslims try to integrate it into the framework of the nation-state of the Republic of Indonesia. An integrative-compatible dialectic – no dichotomic between Islam and Democracy in Indonesia – becomes an interesting frame for democracy to be studied. It is interesting because it involves the future of the existence of Indonesia with the majority of Muslims. It is also an academic, religious and sociological evidence for the Islamic field in the other areas. In the first year, the research will be analysed with various schools of thought (madhab) and the development of the democracy concept and its relation to the Islamic religion. This research uses the scientific epistemology approach of Bayani (textual approach), Burhani (rational and empirical approach), and Irfani (spiritual or intuitive approach). This research aims to highlight the strengthening relations between Islam and democracy in Indonesia. Also, to inspire other Islamic countries about the possibilities of epistemology and axiological-psychological – the democracy concept implementation in Muslim countries. Pages 645 to 664

Half-Hearted Moderation of an Islamist Party: Tracing the Altering Behaviour of Indonesia’s Partai Keadilan Sejahtera (PKS) Post 2014

Ari Ganjar Herdiansaha, aDepartment of Political Science, Universitas Padjadjaran, Email: aari.ganjar@unpad.ac.id

Research on Islamist parties in democratic or semi-democratic countries exposes a shift toward greater moderation. Less understood is how the Islamist party is unwavering in its moderation when circumstances are unfavourable for it. Analysing the alteration of the political behaviour of Partai Keadilan Sejahtera (PKS) in the post-2014 Indonesia, I show that Islamist party moderation is fragile, and the party returned to its idealism when the political environment causes severe ideological inconsistencies. The detachment from political incentives has made the PKS increasingly drawn to an aggressive opponent-style, and unsurprisingly became more involved in Islamist mobilisations for its electoral-idealist ends. The alteration in PKS behaviour towards idealism augments the theoretical presumption that Islamist parties emphasise ideological doctrine, so that whatever they adapt to the democratic political system is always vulnerable to returning to its idealism. This article concludes that half-hearted moderation keeps the potency of an undemocratic insurrection, of an Islamic party, especially when institutional politics do not espouse the views of its traditional constituents, and eventually it undermines its political achievements.

This research aims to describe mobile phone usage and determine the effect of integrating mobile phones to increase elementary students’ short story writing quality, and the perception towards the implementation of mobile phones in a short story writing class. To achieve the aims of the research, the qualitative and quantitative approaches were used. The qualitative data was collected through interviewing and filling the questionnaire, whereas the writing test was collected to obtain the quantitative data. The process of analysing the qualitative data was performed through transcribing, reducing, displaying, and verifying. The results revealed that most of the elementary students were introduced to mobile phones when they were around six to eight years old. A majority of the students had used a mobile phone to access YouTube and play online games. Based on the interviews, most of their parents limit the use of mobile phones and the students are only allowed to use it on a certain day, such as Saturday and/or Sunday. Concerning the implementation of mobile phones in a writing class, based on the assignment in quasi-experimental research, the scores of the pre-test and post-test were used to reveal the quantitative data. The results show that integrating mobile phones in a writing class is effective in increasing the quality of elementary students’ short story writing. Additionally, they perceived that integrating mobile phones in writing classes can change the classroom atmosphere to become more focussed and respectful. Pages 698 to 715

Yeni Absaha*, Yasmin Chairunisa Muchtarb, Inneke Qamariahc, a,b,cDepartment of Management Sciences, Faculty of Economics, Email: a*absah_usu@yahoo.com

SME business owners in general still tend to utilise a traditional view in implementing their business. Thus, in generating products the applied technology is still low. If entrepreneurs are following the latest development, which focuses on maximising the management of intellectual capital, then the existing entrepreneurs in Indonesia will be able to compete by utilising the competitive advantage gained through innovation and creativity generated by the intellectual capital owned by the entrepreneurs. Distro (distribution store) is a type of store in Indonesia that sells clothing and accessories which are entrusted by the clothing manufacturer or self-produced. A boutique is the result of personal production of the owner and the purchase of clothes from the manufacturer/clothing distributor of a clothing company. The aim of this research is to analyse the effect of human capital on business performance on distro and boutique SMEs in Medan City. The result shows that human capital has a positive and significant effect on the business performance of distro and boutique SMEs in Medan. Furthermore, human capital contributed 78.9% in explaining business performance. Meanwhile, the remaining 21.1% is explained by other variables. Pages 716 to 727

Defect Guarantee in Online Shopping Through Social Media

Rouaa Ali Atiyaha, Zynab Hadi Hamiedb, aMiddle Technical University/Technical College of Management, bUniversity of Baghdad /College of Administration and Economics

The subject of online shopping through social media is of interest in Iraq, especially after the relative change of view of the Iraqi Street Market in the lack of reassurance towards the product either by the state or the citizen. Although there is an intention to agree between the producer and the consumer, there may be defects in the product when delivery implementation reflects different views on the content of the rights enjoyed by the investor and its obligations. Therefore, investors seek to obtain guarantees in accordance with the legislation issued by the country and the provisions contained in the provisions of the dispute settlement between the parties, despite the multiple means that can be used by the parties in the resulting electronic sales contracts. The judiciary has the natural and inherent jurisdiction to settle disputes when the consumer resorts to the judiciary to enable his rights concerning the defective product. Pages 739 to 754

The primary task of  financial reporting is represented by the process of communicating the accounting information to interested parties, where those parties have changing and increasing needs for that information. That is, the financial reporting process must include the provision of  financial information that must be reliable and appropriate, as well as revealing the appropriate timing and achievement of the quality of financial reporting when the financial information matches with the needs of current and prospective investors, for the financial information should assist them in their decisions regarding whether to invest in that country or not. The adoption of the international financial reporting standards and international accounting Standards (IAS / IFRS) is the result of an international accounting consensus that allows the provision of reliable and internationally comparable financial information, to assist investors in making decisions in the international financial markets. These standards have been adopted in many countries of the world, to make accounting and financial information internationally comparable. Therefore, the research aims to indicate the impact of the application of international accounting standards on investors' decisions. Pages 755 to 775

Complexity of the European Union System and its Adaptation Abilities

Anna Wierzchowskaa, aUniversity of Economics and Human Sciences in Warsaw, Poland, Email: aa.wierzchowska@vizja.pl

The European Union, as a complex political system, is a space where processes resulting from multifaceted and contradictory forces emerge. As a result, building the system's adaptability and stabilisation (pro-integration) capacity requires specific steps and actions. Operating within the EU consists in navigating through contradictory, often mutually exclusive activities whose nature reflects the nature of being a member of a supranational organisation. As a result, building a stable structure seems unattainable, and instead, a structure that is exposed to permanent crises and lack of sustainable growth is created.  The aim of the current study is to look at the dynamics of integration processes through the lens of destabilising (crises) and modernising factors, which allow the system to return to the state of relative functional balance.

Analysis of Satisfaction and Customer Loyalty: A Study on Low Cost Green Cars (LCGCs) in Indonesia

Wibisonoa*, Surachmanb, Ainur Rofiqc, Sunaryod, a,b,c,dFaculty of Economics and Business, Brawijaya University, Malang - Indonesia, Email: a*wibisono1705@yahoo.com

This study aims to analyse the variables that influence customer satisfaction on fuel efficient and affordable price cars, also known as the Low Cost Green Car (LCGC) in Indonesia’s national car industry. This study is also to investigate the relationship between customer loyalty and satisfaction. The variables arise to affect satisfaction based on the consumers’ survey in Indonesia. These variables are the quality of the product, service quality, and perceived value. The concept of Indonesia’s national car industry is the LCGC, which is when the manufactured local content level used is above 80 per cent. There are few empirical studies which examine the relationship between the quality of the product, service quality, perceived value to satisfaction, and the correlation between satisfaction and customer loyalty in Indonesia’s national automotive industry. This study attempts to fill this gap in the literature, and to propose an integrated research model about the national car industry in Indonesia. The study used 375 respondents with the Structural Equation Modelling-Partial Least Square method, and the Warp-PLS 6.0 approach, to deliver the results that the quality of the product, service quality, and perceived value were empirically proven to significantly influence satisfaction. Furthermore, satisfaction significantly influences loyalty. This study contributes that in achieving customer loyalty in Indonesia’s national car industry, customer satisfaction has to be maintained. In addition, to assure customer satisfaction, Indonesia’s national car industry should improve the quality of the product, service quality, and perceived value. In this case, Indonesia is able to be independent in the competition of the four-wheeled vehicle industry. Future studies should focus on brand trust and price perception to measure the influence of customer satisfaction and customer loyalty. Pages 798 to 823

Mohammed MuzaaL Khalatia, Tahseen Ali Hussein Al-Romanyb, aWasit University-College of Humanities Arabic Language department, bWasit University –College of Arts –Translation Department, Email: ammiziel@uowasit.edu.iqbtalkubachi@uowasit.edu.iq

This paper aims to discuss the development and challenges of Artificial Intelligence using the Arabic language. Artificial Intelligence refers to the computer ability to process data and reach the results that are similar to human thinking, learning and decision making. Also, this paper highlights that the Arabic content in the online internet is only 1%, while the number of Arabic speakers is 5%.This is high difference rate is due to many reasons such as: late awareness of the need of MT and the lack of experts and scholars in the field of Arabic language. The goal of Artificial intelligence is to develop systems that are able to deal with complicated problems that are similar to human operations. In this paper, we cited some previous studies and workshops to indicate the challenges and development of Artificial Intelligence using the Arabic language, as well as the role of NLP, which is a branch of Artificial Intelligence that analyses human language using computers. This paper concludes with some important recommendations to improve Artificial Intelligence and use. Pages 916 to 926

Developing an Active Tool in GIS for Population Projection: Ninevah Governorate and USA Population Data as a Model

Omar Abdullah Ismaeela, aGeography Department, College of Education for Humanities, University of Mosul, Iraq, Email: aomar.a.ismaeel@uomosul.edu.iq

This research aimed to develop a population projection tool in ArcGIS Desktop10.x which is very popular GIS software. The tool is based on the geometric mean equation, and it was developed by deconstructing a set of tools available in the Data Management Tools application of ArcGIS Desktop10.x, then reconstructing them in a special environment known as the Model Builder. The idea is based on the premise that the aim can be achieved by developing an easy-to-use tool that works with high speed and accuracy, utilising the automating calculation of population projection in the feature linked Attribute table. The research succeeded in developing a population projection tool and testing it on the population projection data for Nineveh Governorate, Iraq and the United States of America. Pages 927 to 943

The Role of Talk Show TV Presenters in Enriching the Debate on Political Crises

Hussein Dubai Hassana, M.D. Layla Ali jumaahb, aCollege of Media - University of Baghdad, bImam Al-Kadhim College for Islamic Sciences (University), Email: adrhussaindobay@comc.uobaghdad.edu.iqbLayla70luje@gmail.com 

The role of the talk show hosts depends mainly on the style of conversation, intending to enrich the discussion on political crises and building information according to the opinions raised on the nature of those crises. Talk show hosts develop a set of considerations to enrich the discussion, the most important of which is to approach the audience and gain their emotional support. This is part of persuasion strategies to complement the opinions expressed and enrich the debate on political crises. Talk show hosts rely on moving the imagination of viewers, as one of the narrative methods to enrich the debate on political crises to return them to previous political crises. The talk show hosts rely on a set of stimuli, the most important of which is the singular autonomy associated with the political crisis, as they rely on "launching nomenclature" to enrich the discussion and reduce the knowledge gap about these crises. The hosts of talk shows rely on the social framing of political crises in a manner of collective harmony in controlling the verbal methods accompanying the processes of enriching the debate on political crises, as "social framing" contributes to exchanging opinions and citing customs and traditions in managing the themes of discussion.

Searching for Home from the Land of Exile: The Trio of War, Exile and Memory in Nada Awar Jarrar’s Somewhere Home

Ahmed Sa'ad Aziza, Ali Abdullah Saaed Alfuadyb, Suhaib Majeed Kadhemc, a,b,cDepartment of English/College of Arts/ University of Al-Qadisiyah /Iraq, Email: aAhmed.aziz@qu.edu.iqbali.alfuady@qu.edu.iqcSuhaib@qu.edu.iq

In today’s world, the conception of home is problematic in the sense that it becomes fluid and always in flux. Since no one today is purely one thing, there is a commitment in many diasporic writings to move beyond the simplistic or single meaning of home towards a transnational home.  Nada Awar Jarrar’s Somewhere, Home (2002) is a case in point. The novel presents the life journeys of three different women and the impact of war on their lives, which brings them to a point where they are compelled to find home away from home. At the heart of Jarrar’s novel, there is an emphasis on the exilic experience from home and family due to the catastrophic consequences of war. In this regard, war appears as a persistent theme throughout the novel. The unifying thread between war, home, and exile is vividly seen through the motif of a village house in the hills above Beirut, which indeed provides an unattainable symbol of home to characters in the novel. Somewhere, Home meticulously comprises three parts, each one deals with a completely different set of characters. The  effect of the Lebanese civil war drove many people away from their homes in search of a more peaceful place to reside in, but being away from their homeland, many of them hoped to see the war come to an end and return in search of the peace that they once lived in. The novel examined here portrays a common sense of belonging and homesickness that many people belonging to countries affected by war may share. The loneliness of exile and the misery of the war worsen the plight of the Lebanese immigrants and here Jarrar tries to depict the feeling of dispersal and uprootedness in her masterpiece Somewhere, Home. The novel tends to shed light upon the sufferings of those in exile. The novel particularly focuses on and portrays the effects of the civil war in Lebanon and the pains of exile in the lives of Lebanese women. Pages 990 to 1002

This paper looks over the functions of causative verbs as an expression of causation in both writing and speech. Its aim is to present the characteristics of these verbs, and find out the extent to which they can be used by Iraqi university students in marking the causes of the students' errors and their sources. Hypothetically, most of these students cannot avoid vagueness in using them and may be unable to differentiate them from other types of verbs. To address these concerns, a questionnaire was issued to a sample of 50 fourth-year students at the Department of English, College of Basic Education, University of Babylon. Collecting and analysing the subjects’ performance may explain the factual difficulty the students face in utilising them. This outcome emerges from the general assessment of the students' responses.

The Impact of Crowding Out of the Government Sector on Private Investment: A Case of Iraq

Fahad Mghemish Huzayrana, aUniversity of Warith Al_Anbiyaa, Faculty of Administration and Economics, Karbala, Iraq, Email:  afahad.alshammary@uowa.edu.iq

The Iraqi economy has been suffering from financial pressure since 1991. This pressure comes from an increase in government expenditure. This increase in government expenditure has had many effects on some economic variables, most importantly private investment. By examining the extent to which the public sector is competing with the private sector for the financial resources available for lending, the government expenditure showed no significant impact on the private sector but was complementary to it, and has a positive correlation with other indicators in terms of interest rates and government debt. Whereas GDP is inversely linked to government spending, and therefore government spending does not overwhelm the private sector over financial resource. The results also indicate that there is no competition for resources in the Iraqi economy due to the weakness of the private sector and Iraq’s reliance on oil revenues to finance its expenditures as well as the lack of dependence on the financial market to finance its expenditures which reduces competition in the private sector.

The results showed that the local fishermen were generally from the Kaili ethnic group, while the migrant fishermen were from variousethnic groups, namely Bugis, Makassar, Mandar and Gorontalo. Before there was cooperation between fishers, local fishermen were generally at alower level of welfare than migrant fishers. This is seen economically inhousing quality, vehicle ownership, family education levels and socio-religious status. After the cooperation, the welfare level of local fishermen began to improve. The cooperation concerns migrant fishermen involving local fishermen residents in fishery sharing.. This study concludes that an increase in the standard of living of fishing communities can occur if the rules for sharing take place and are voluntarily accepted by all parties concerned.

Job seeking competition in today’s disruption era is increasing rapidly. Higher Education Institutes (HEI) need to prepare their graduates to be able to compete in this era. The focus of entrepreneurship in theory is to develop and flourish business throughout invention and exploitation of good and services. This study acts as basic guidance for HEI senior management and their staff in its managerial structure as a reference and based on developing a framework to create an improved curriculum, so that students can meet employment requirements. This study applies content analysis to understanding curriculum compatibility by adapting entrepreneurship competence dimensions in a management undergraduate study program. The result reveals that in the existing curriculum the expected learning outcomes (ELO) still have incompatibility with the second and third entrepreneurship competences; the ‘resources’ and ‘into action’. This result will lead to a framework for curriculum adjustment in order to enhance students’ employability towards the 4.0 industry. There are gaps in the existing ELO that can be identified using the entrepreneurship competences and which need to be resolved. The current curriculum in the Department of Management needs to be addressed. Entrepreneurship competences need to be embedded in individuals, especially students in Indonesian HEIs. The entrepreneurial competence, which is embedded in the student, will enable improving their skills when they enter the real world. This research also contributes in enhancing HEIs’ students’ entrepreneurial competence, by providing a framework to modify the current curriculum. Pages 1146 to 1161

Strategy-Aligned Channel Location Selection by a Multiple Criterion Decision-making Mechanism: A Perspective of Franchising System Assessment

Kuo-Yan Wang, Guangdong University of Petrochemical Technology, Maoming, Guangdong 525000, China, Email: philipwang1688@gmail.com

“Location, location, location”, is a common proverb in real estate, especially for small-scale food and beverage business owners. The existing literature on location choice tends to over-emphasise large-acreage positions or additional location selection, rather than strategically oriented channel expansion in the pre-initial stage of firm development. The present study therefore uses a multiple decision-making method (MCDM) to infer numerous implications from the ranking results. Although this case study focusses on a franchising system expansion project for a handmade beverage franchise in numerous markets, the method is widely applicable to location selection procedures in entrepreneurial contexts, thanks to reduced costs, simplicity of use, and arithmetic simplicity. Several research directions for subsequent study are offered. Pages 1202 to 1215

Adibah Baria, Darwina Arshadb, a,bSchool of Business Management, College of Business Universiti Utara Malaysia, Email: aadibahbari@gmail.com,  bdarwina@uum.edu.my

There are several studies in entrepreneurship which investigate the determinants of entrepreneurial self-efficacy and social networking towards business performance. However, the research on improvisation, typically on these two factors, was found to be limited and remains unexplored. This research aimed at investigating the mediating role of improvisation behaviour in the development of women’s entrepreneurial business success. Based on the extant literature, improvisation is critical to the success of any business. Thus, this paper aims to expand the frontier of knowledge by examining the mediating role of improvisation behaviour on the connection between proclivity for entrepreneurial self-efficacy, social networking, and business success, particularly among women entrepreneurs in Malaysia. This is done through a comprehensive literature review and conceptual discussion. The findings of the study signify an indirect positive significant effect of improvisation behaviour on the relationship between the antecedent factors; entrepreneurial self-efficacy (ESE) and social networking towards women entrepreneurs’ business success in Malaysian SMEs. The study, however, discussed the theoretical and practical implication in the final analysis. Pages 1297 to 1314

Most journals require the existence of an abstract in both languages, such as the source and the target one, since it represents the preface of the research. The starting point of any work seems to be the most difficult one since it paves the way for all the coming steps. Another difficulty arises with researchers who do not specialise in English when trying to translate their Arabic abstracts into English. Most of them use Google translation or send their abstracts to other people who specialise or have knowledge in English. A few of them try their own translation depending on their experience and knowledge. As a result, they may commit various types of errors in doing so. Due to this, these errors will be collected, classified, and explained. A random sample of 24 abstracts taken from different issues of the Journal of the College of Administration and Economics has been selected to be studied, statistically analysed, classified, and then explained, to determine the various types of errors committed. It has been concluded that most researchers with specialisations other than English, suffer greatly from the various types of errors which they commit under the effect of different reasons, including primarily those related to interlanguage and intralanguage interference.

The economic units face many challenges in the contemporary environment. This is represented by the technological development and information revolution that are accompanied by the rapid development of computer systems, competition increase, market changes, customer's requirements, and the need for accurate information. Thus, it becomes necessary to enter the world of information technology strongly and to use solutions of information technology because it plays an important role in the business environment. As a result of these challenges, the economic units have re-examined the structure of their technological processes to maintain their competitive advantage and to work better in a changing business environment. For the information systems to be considered as a corner stone of the economic unit's operations structure, it is necessary to pay attention to the design of information technology-based information systems, including the enterprise resource planning (ERP) system. This is a system of managing the economic unit business that combines all different components of the various software programs in order to operate, improve, and integrate all business processes within the economic unit. The ERP system is considered as one of the most prevalent information technology (IT) solutions in economic units, where the ERP system has been implemented worldwide to enhance business performance. Therefore, the culture of the organisation has a role in developing and bringing the information technology needed by the economic units in their work. This includes the ERP system, which can affect the accounting information system, where it achieves greater economy, effectiveness, and efficiency by reducing repetition and slowness in the performance of businesses.

The Form of the Iraqi State under the 2005 Constitution: A Study for the Deviation of the Federal Experience

Asst. Prof. Dr. Ahmed Yahya Hadi1, Asst. Prof. Dr. Oday Falih Hussein2, 1,2 Department of political Sciences, College for Islamic sciences, Imam Al-Kadhim University, Iraq

According to its permanent constitution of 2005, Iraq adopted a new style of state administration, in which it turned from the extreme centralization that ruled the Iraqi state for nearly three decades to federalism, i.e. from centralization of the authority to division of powers. However, this is a recent experience that was not common among the Iraqi political forces, or even the citizens, which adopted this style. It is the first experience since the establishment of the Iraqi state until the adoption of the style of federal administration. Therefore, it witnessed several deviations that began by the way the state was established and the division style of powers across the different levels of government, and ended by some relationships between these levels and with the federal government. So, we proceeded our work based on the premise that "Iraq adopted the federal system in its permanent constitution, although that system witnessed many exclusive deviations, in comparison with the other federal systems that arose under the same conditions, in which the Iraqi federal system emerged , in general, and the relationship between the formation of the federal state, division of powers and the probability of decision in case of disagreement between these different levels of government, in particular. To verify this hypothesis, we will address, in this research, the following themes: First, the concept of the federal system; Second, the relationship between the federal state’s formation and the division of powers; Third, Features of the federal system under the Iraq's 2005 permanent constitution; and Fourth, aspects of deviation of the federal system under the 2005 Constitution.

Modernization and Resistance: Healing the Social Ills in Leila Aboulela’s Lyrics Alley

aAli Abdullah Saaed Alfuady, bLecturer Ahmed Sa'ad Aziz (Ph.D.), cLecturer Suhaib Majeed Kadhem, a,b,cDepartment of English/College of Arts/ University of Al-Qadisiyah /Iraq, Email: aali.alfuady@qu.edu.iqbahmed.aziz@qu.edu.iq, cSuhaib@qu.edu.iq

Following the postcolonial Sudanese writer, Tayeb Salih’s perspective in his famous novel, Season of Migration to the North (1969), Leila Aboulela exposes the binary identity that her characters gain it through migration and transportation. This paper examines the traditional resistance to modernity in Aboulela’s Lyrics Alley (2011). It investigates how Sudanese parochial norms resist the Western modernity and how to rejuvenate and modernize such tradition. As she attempts to create a real image of the Sudanese postcolonial situation, Aboulela shows out the deep-rooted norms of Sudan that set up a barrier between Sudanese tradition and Western modernity. Sudanese think of education as a shame for women and a waste of time for men. Education is considered “as being a great evil that come to them with the armies of occupation” (Tayeb Salih 1969: 19). The novel points out the feminist voice which strives to get her moral choice, her privacy and her personal freedom. It brings out the importance of education to narrow the gap between Sudan and the West that may help Sudanese cope with modern world. The paper critically questions women’s position in the conservative Sudanese family and the fragmented identity that fails to stand in front of the patriarchal hegemony. Through postcolonial perspective, the paper critically sheds light on the Islamic Scripture, Holy Qur’an and its patriarchal misinterpretation that takes women for granted and makes them alienated from the world. The patriarchal interpretation of Islamic Scriptures has been examined through the modern feminist theories. The paper reveals the double marginalized world where Sudanese women live. The marginality shows out that Sudanese women fall into the trap of traditional norms that enforce women to live within four walls. Pages 1753 to 1764

Problems of Translating “Shall” in the Charter of the United Nations

Dr. Anfal Qubais Saeed, Department of Translation, College of Art, University of Mosul, Mosul, Iraq, Email: Anfal.q.s@uomosul.edu.iq

Translation is an interdisciplinary activity associated to conveying a message from a source text (ST) into a target text (TT). This translational process of conveying an intellectual message can be described as a linguistic, cultural, and semantic mechanism through which the author/ speaker’s message is conveyed. That is why the process of translation must be academically discussed in terms of linguistic, cultural, and semantic elements. Translation is defined as transferring the author/ speaker’s message from a source text (ST) into a target text (TT); however, some international texts, especially UN texts are translated from English as a source international language into all languages. For example, The Charter of the United Nations is one of these texts that reflect the international organization basis of translation from one international language “English” into all other languages. Thus, the presents study aims at highlighting and analyzing the problems of Translating “Shall” as modal verbs which has no equivalent in the Arabic language. Shall, as a missing equivalent in the process of translation into Arabic, results in many problems and misunderstanding of the real meaning. That is why, the present study aim at analyzing the problems of translating “shall” in The Charter of the United Nations through discussing the linguistic, semantic, and cultural problems. In addition, the study will focus on the strategies of translation used in translating these modal verbs namely over-translation, under-translation, domestication, foreignisation, and transliteration.

This paper aims to look at the difficulty in creating a smart city through the smart environment approach. The smart environment is one of the dimensions of smart cities to develop a sustainable city in line with environmental management. Cirebon City's inability to receive the Indonesian Green City-Adipura Award eventually led the government to decide to incorporate the smart city by using the smart environment framework. By using a descriptive qualitative research approach, this research seeks a solution by acquiring a profound understanding of environmental management and the community's views on the environment in this area. The result indicates that there is a discrepancy that renders the management of the environment inadequate, and it gives a new perception that the idea of smart environment might bring improvements in the proper management of the environment.

The novel disease known as Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) or better known as Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) has taken on pandemic proportions that can cause infected people to experience mild to moderate respiratory illness while the older people and those with underlying medical issues are at a greater likelihood to develop serious illness or even death. Following Human Immunodeficiency Viruses (HIV) / Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS) outbreak, the nexus between public health–human rights became more significant and has driven public health away from the conventional, state-centred Westphalian methods to contagious diseases toward an approach that placed people and their rights instead of states and their sovereignty, at the centre of interest. This article aims to discuss whether actions taken by states to diminish the potential spread of COVID-19 by imposing travel bans, isolation and quarantine are regarded as threats to human rights brought by both civil and political rights as well as economic, social, and cultural rights. Therefore, to assess whether these measures are reasonable, there is a need to observe responses of World Health Organisation (WHO) as an intergovernmental organisation established by member states in facilitating their interactions on public health matters under the purview of International Health Regulations. This qualitative research utilises the secondary data gained from scientific database analysis and library research including documents and precedents on public health–human rights linkage articles, WHO reports on COVID-19, etc and these data were analysed by legal interpretation. The finding shows that the necessary measures taken by governments are in fact aligned within legal and human rights' framework. Pages 123 to 135

Sri Hartini Jatmikowatia, aPolitical and Social Science Faculty of Merdeka Malang University, Email: asrihartinijatmikowati@gmail.com

Indonesia is the fourth most populous country in the world after China, India, and America. In 2019 Indonesia's population will reach 268,074,600 people with a population growth of 3.54%. Indonesia has a big task, one of which is to provide guarantees and welfare to its people. National development is one of the government's solutions to improve people's welfare. However, the growth of national development is not in line with the increasing population in Indonesia, and this has become one of the major causes of social problems, such as street children, homeless, and beggars.

Rampant illegal actions in many companies and organisations such as corruption, misappropriation asset, fraudulent financial reporting, and other similar actions encourage the creation of a disclosure system of unethical behaviour (whistleblowing system). This study uses an experimental method with a 2 x 3 matrix design involving 294 students of accounting study program from private universities in Central Java, Bali and Kalimantan. This paper presents the results of the laboratory experiment study on authentic leadership and ethical climate in relation to whistleblowing intention. Students acted as inspectorate staffs in one of the cities in Central Java, and they were given a treatment to reveal frauds in the procurement of goods. The results of this study indicate that authentic leadership can encourage whistleblowing intention when a leader has an internalised moral perspective. Decision making on whistleblowing intention was based on three types of ethical climate, namely egoism, benevolence, and principal. Of the three ethical climates, the principal ethical climate has the most significant influence on whistleblowing intention because the existing laws, rules, codes of ethics, and professional codes govern one's behaviour.

To propose a financial measurement model in order to assess the performance of waqf managers (Nazhir) based on Sharia Accounting Standard, the model evaluates whether a Nazhir has managed the waqf assets following the laws and regulations, the objectives of the institution, the wishes of the donors (wakif) as well as the benefits of the beneficiaries (Mauquf Alaih). The paper uses a qualitative method with a financial ratios approach which is compiled into a comprehensive financial statement analysis model. These financial ratios are developed based on Indonesian Accounting Standard No 112 concerning Accounting of Waqf that has just been ratified. The research builds a model that analyses a component of waqf financial statements from the Indonesia Accounting Standard that was organised into three groups (performance, impact, and result). Each group has its ratios with a few segments for several groups. The performance ratios are derived from funding, managing, and donating segments. The results of this study provide an objective and informative financial performance measurement model that can be used by stakeholders for the decision-making process in managing waqf assets. This paper was one of the first attempts to build a performance measurement model that goes following the sharia principles. Moreover, this model can be adopted by Indonesia Waqf Board (BWI), as the waqf authority, to improve the reporting standard for waqf institutions.Pages 338 to 352

This article examines the pesantren (Islamic boarding school) in the future and the enlightenment of modern Islamic thought through a theological reconstruction approach. This study seeks to reveal the intellectual potential and energy of pesantren and its use in the enlightenment of modern Islamic thought, as well as its potential to contribute to the development of Islamic studies and pesantren in Indonesia. The formal object of this study is the enlightenment of modern Islamic thought in pesantren, which have long been dominated by traditional–textual understandings that give limited space to modern–contextual ones. The material object of this study is the pesantren that are seen as having the potential for pioneering the enlightenment of modern Islamic thought. For analysis, a theological reconstruction approach is used to reveal the potential for pesantren to drive the enlightenment of modern Islamic thought in Indonesia. The pesantren in the future can represent the mainstream thoughts of modernist Muslims, and as such pesantren can become centres of excellence for producing understandings of Islam that are moderate, constructive and capable of solving the problems of the ummah, the nation and the state. Pesantren already have the social and intellectual capital necessary to realise this goal; it is simply a matter of ensuring that kiai (pesantren leaders) and other stakeholders are committed to gradually conditioning pesantren communities to read relevant texts, write scientific articles, and publish them in national and international journals.

State Civil Liability for Environmental Damage in Jordanian Legislation

Mohammed Khalil Abu Bakera, aZaytooneh University,

Modern countries are directly responsible for the damage that befalls society, including normal and juridical individuals, resulting from constructions, licensing and enacted laws relevant to the environment. Some of such regulations are arbitrary, others are unlawful as they might lead to damage of environment, society and individuals. The state had to compensate for the materialistic, moral, personal or environmental damages in compliance with its civil liability. But what is the rule to be adopted for compensation, how much should it be and what are the amounts to be compensated for? This study attempts to suggest a mechanism for indemnity through creating a special fund, updating rules and regulations, enhancing, protecting, maintaining, consolidating environmental enlightenment, avoiding environment pollutants, assigning industrial zones, adopting world quality criteria in this respect, and resorting to clean energy. The state should also be held accountable for its affiliates and for issuance of administration licenses in addition to activating the role of the Ministry of Environment and securing qualified people and materialistic cadres.

Germas has been established in order to improve the quality of public health, especially in the face of demographic bonuses, a condition where the population of productive age is more than the non-productive age. The positive impact of the demographic bonus is the availability of workers of productive age who can advance various development sectors primarily in regional economic development. Aside from education, the condition of public health is very important to pay special attention to, given the quality of the health of the productive age community in Sidoarjo Regency which is quite worrying, namely 70% of HIV / AIDS cases are in the productive age population. This requires the involvement of various parties in the success of the Germas program. The purpose of this study is to analyse the effectiveness of Germas as a program in preparing demographic bonuses in the perspective of collaborative governance in Sidoarjo Regency. This type of research uses a qualitative descriptive technique with the determination of purposive sampling informants, while the research data collection uses interviews, observation and documentation where the results are analysed with the interactive model of Miles and Huberman. Based on the results of the study, it is concluded that the effectiveness of the program in preparing demographic bonuses through the collaborative governance perspective in Sidoarjo in terms of face to face dialogue of the Germas program, the implementation of meetings, campaigns, and training is not scheduled and irregular. In terms of sharing understanding in the delivery of regulations related to Germas, this has been implemented well through campaigns, print media and broadcast on the radio. For intermediate outcoming from the implementation of the Germas program in Sidoarjo Regency is still in the stage of socialisation, thus the results of the main objectives expected in the Germas program to prepare a demographic bonus have not yet been seen.

MSMEs Mitigation Risk: Purchase Decision of Natural Disaster Insurance at MSMEs

Amron Amrona, Sih Darmi Astutib, Usman Usmanc, a,b,cEconomics and Business Faculty, Universitas Dian Nuswantoro, Semarang, Indonesia,

The aim of this study was to examine the relationship model in service quality, insurance premium and promotion with the purchase decision using respondents of 101 MSMEs of insurance policy holders who were willing to buy natural disaster insurance policies without the assistance of subsidies from the government. The data obtained from the respondents was analysed using multiple linear regression analysis. Surprisingly, this study found that although the premium insurance price variable had the greatest effect, it turned out to only have a difference of 18 percent compared to the effect of the service quality variable. This proves that independent MSMEs are not merely calculating the affordability of premium prices, but they are aware of the benefit of insurance. This is one of the differences from other MSMEs that rely on government subsidies.  Pages 557 to 569

The mediation tests results show that customer satisfaction cannot mediate the effect of price perception on repurchase intentions. It has perfect mediation for the effect of service convenience on repurchase intentions. The hedonic value has a perfect mediation role for the effect of price perception on customer satisfaction, but it only has partial mediation for the effect of service convenience on customer satisfaction. Customer satisfaction has a mediation role for the effect of hedonic values on repurchase intentions. Pages 570 to 589

Filosa Gita Sukmonoa, Fajar Junaedib, Ali Maksumc, a,bDepartment of Communication, Universitas Muhammadiyah Yogyakarta, cDepartment of International Relations, Universitas Muhammadiyah Yogyakarta,

Ahmadiyya community in Indonesia often receive physical attacks from other Islamic communities that accused Ahmadiyya as not-Islam. For some Indonesians, Ahmadiyya holds a contentious Islamic identity, which for some people adulterates the cardinal canon of Islam. However, the Ahmadiyya community in Tawangmangu, Indonesia, experiences a reasonably inverse condition. By smartly managing cultural relations with local citizens (non-Ahmadiyya), Ahmadiyya’s people seem to live in harmony with the residents. The empirical study revealed that the Ahmadiyya community in Tawangmangu established multicultural relations in daily life by carrying out cultural approaches. The cultural approaches were intensive acculturation and integration with the host community. The Ahmadiyya community even used a football academy to attract the local community to engage indirectly in a social activity. Under this strategy, Ahmadiyya successfully maintains its original identity without disturbing local identities, cultures, and wisdom. Pages 718 to 734

Wali Nanggroe in Aceh: Is he the Real King or the Fake One? A Political Review

The topic of Wali Nanggroe makes an original a contribution to knowledge, as this information is not published globally. The discussion of Wali Nanggroe in the legal system of Aceh, Indonesia is a critical debate. Recently, the existence of Wali Nanggroe in the kingdom period of Aceh has been disputed. This article critically discusses the legal norms established by the by-laws of Wali Nanggroe. The by-laws relate closely to the electoral mechanism of the candidacy of Wali Nanggroe in Aceh. The research approach used here is normative juridical, through legal, comparative and historical principles. Data analysis was carried out by qualitative analysis. The selection of the nanggroe guardian based on Qanun No. 8 of 2012, in Article 70 is inconsistent with the principle of legal justice because it lacks the regulation of mechanisms for democratic people’s involvement. The determination of the nanggroe guardian election model stipulated in the qanun is contrary to the principle of the rule of law and the sovereignty of the people. According to the principle of justice, nanggroe guardians in Aceh must be democratically chosen by involving all Acehnese people. The main function of the presence of the nanggroe Aceh guardian is to unite existing ethnic groups and ethnic groups in life to sustain its customs and unite the community. The election of the nanggroe guardians should therefore involve all levels of Acehnese society. For this reason, it is important to avoid any perception that the nanggroe guardians only belong to certain groups. The nanggroe guardian needs to truly belong to all Acehnese people and the role should be strengthened by means of deliberation. Pages 735 to 749

The aim of this article was to work out whether a change has also followed the National Police legal culture after the 1945 Constitutional amendment and the emergence of the new Police Law in the National Police legal culture. Many perceptions led us to the fact that arrangements and structural changes before and after the reform era have brought little change to the National Police legal culture. To test this hypothesis, the article discusses how the constitutional arrangements and laws regarding the Indonesian National Police effected the changes. The analysis is conducted using a normative research method and a sociological-juridical approach. The research found that legal culture-shifting occurred in the National Police following its separation from the National Army to become an independent organ. However, the military culture had become rooted in the National Police identity and needs to shift into the civilian culture. Pages 750 to 758

This study investigates the economic freedom and economic growth nexus in a board of 13 MENA countries from 2010 to 2018. Based on the Heritage Foundation, five factors have been adopted to capture all of the economic freedom dimensions, namely: security of property rights, freedom from corruption, government spending, business freedom, and monetary policy. To capture the endogeneity issue, an empirical analysis has been conducted by adopting the GMM framework. The focal point of this article is to evaluate which dimension of economic freedom adds to economic growth in the MENA countries, and to what degree. The empirical results reveal that economic freedom plays an enhancing role in the economic growth of the sampled economies. In other words, the economic growth is affected positively through the dimensions of economic freedom. Moreover, the empirical outcomes signal that the current economic growth rate will be affected significantly by the growth rate of the past year. Thus, the findings of the present investigations might have precious implications for the authorities and policy-makers in the sampled countries. Pages 759 to 774

Ganjar Mohamad Disastraa*, Bethani Suryawardanib, Widya Sastikac, Fanni Husnul Hanifad, a,b,c,dTelkom University, Bandung, Indonesia, Email: a*ganjar@tass.telkomuniveristy.ac.id

This study aims to find out how religiosity and the subjective norm can influence Muslim consumers' purchase intention in halal products, with the halal awareness as an intervening variable. Considering the number of existing studies with the same variables in food products, this research seeks to enrich the literature with concerns of non-food halal products, especially in halal personal care products. This study is a quantitative survey method, by collecting data through the distribution of questionnaires to the respondents. The proposed model is then tested using the Partial Least Square (PLS) technique. Results of this study indicate that religiosity positively influences halal awareness, but negatively influences purchase intention. Meanwhile, subjective norms have a significant positive effect on halal awareness and purchase intention. It can be concluded that halal awareness fully mediates the relationship between religiosity and purchase intention, and partially mediates the relationship between subjective norm and purchase intention.

Underpricing often occurs in issuers that make IPOs on the IDX (the Indonesia Stock Exchange). Because underpricing is detrimental to the issuer, the study of factors that affect underpricing is very important. The aim of this study is to test the impact of firm size, profitability, and capital structure on underpricing in firms conducting IPOs. The sample of this study is firms that conduct IPOs in 2009-2016 and in the group of non-manufacturing firms. It is hypothesised that firm size and profitability have a negative effect on underpricing while capital structure has a positive effect on underpricing. The findings of this study are as follows: Firm size and profitability as measured by ROA (return on assets) have a significant negative effect on underpricing. However, profitability as represented by EPS (earnings per share) is not supported and has a negative effect on underpricing, and capital structure is also not supported and has a positive effect on underpricing.

The Freeport Deal: Lessons Learned from Indonesia in Renegotiating Mining Concessions

The Asia-Pacific region has substantial reserves of a wide variety of minerals, including gold, copper, iron and gas. The most important mineral reserve-holders and producers in the region are China, India, and Indonesia. Even so, the limited ability of exploration and exploitation had forced some states to still rely on foreign investment, one of which is Indonesia. Indonesia has been known to have a long-standing issue with their investor, Freeport McMoran Inc., the giant mining company based in the United States. Through its subsidiary, Freeport Indonesia (PTFI), Freeport then entered into a Contract of Work with the Indonesian Government in 1967, and renewed it in 1991. PTFI is given the right to conduct mining business activities for at least until the concession expires in 2021. In 2009, the Government issued a new mining regulation, which requires all mining companies, including PTFI, to convert mining concessions into a Special Mining License, along with additional requirements such as divestment, purification obligations, social and environmental responsibility. This policy totally contradicts the virtues in the contract. In December 2018, the Government of Indonesia reached a final decision on the Freeport deal, which encompasses at least 5 (five) issues, namely: (1) shifting from contract to license scheme, (2) price of the divestment, (3) building smelters, (4) taxation, and (5) environmental responsibilities. The final deal is a culmination of years of multiparty negotiations. This paper examines the 5 (five) main points concluded in the Freeport deal in light of the strategic negotiation technique, which stresses the negotiating parties’ patience and ability to make take-it-or-leave-it deals. It then concludes on lessons learned from the Freeport deal for future mining concessions’ renegotiation.. Pages 857 to 875

Conceptualising the Issues of Translation Culture in China: The Roles of Domestication, and Foreignization

Cultural differences, while translating, can be ensured using foreignization and domestication strategies. Transparent and fluent styles are usually adopted in a domestication translation to reduce the strange words for target readers. Foreignization mostly focuses on the target text, which is designed to break target conventions, and at the same time, it retains some of the foreign flavors. This paper aims to explore on relationship and implications of foreignization and domestication in translation. This essay discusses the history of domestication and foreignization and associated issues briefly. It is also argued that the uniqueness of culture would be considerably diminished if the culture of translation is dominated by domestication. On the other hand, mechanical translation will enhance if it is going towards the direction of foreignization. It is further quoted that legitimate obligations are not required for foreignization or domestication while translating as long as the practicality of translation is there. Pages 876 to 886

The implementation of a judicial review, which is conducted separately by the Constitutional Court, and the Supreme Court, is considered to be inappropriate with the ideals of building a harmonious, and integrated legal system. In its practice, it has been proven that the authority of the judicial review to the Constitutional Court, and the Supreme Court encourages various issues. The substantive difference between the tests conducted by the Constitutional Court, and those conducted by the Supreme Court, is the process of examining the trial of the legislation under the law, and against the law by the Supreme Court was conducted in private. The cases handled by the Supreme Court were numerous, not just the legislation testing cases, but also the cases of cassation, and other legal matter. The relationship between the two judicial institutions, namely the Supreme Court, and the Constitutional Court, has become out of sync in the Indonesian constitutional system. The enforcement of the constitution integrally in all laws and regulations has become challenging to materialise. It becomes the loss of the power of the Supreme Court decision for a test case. When the norms that are used as the basis by the Supreme Court are declared unconstitutional by the Constitutional Court, there will be conflicting decisions. Pages 887 to 900

Papua, at the eastern edge of the Indonesian Archipelago, has long been identified as lagging in its economic, and social development. A lack of infrastructure has limited its advancement, and as such, efforts to develop Papua as a growth centre have faced severe obstacles. A majority of studies have examined Papua by using a structural approach, rather than through the Papuans' own perspectives. This study seeks to explain how an emic approach is necessary for empowerment, arguing that this offers an affirmative means of addressing the situation. This article identifies four empowerment strategies that may be used, including: protecting traditional communities, building capacity, guaranteeing access, and promoting independence. A caring, and affirmative development paradigm is necessary to apply these strategies. Pages 925 to 937

The management of a computer-based learning process has been implemented at the Indonesian Naval Technology College for the last three years in several courses, including both undergraduate, and post-graduate programs. The management of the learning process has shifted from traditional learning. The role of computers in the learning process by lecturers will change the students' perceptions of the learning process upon the components of the lecturer, equipment, and methods applied. The aim of this study is to evaluate students' perceptions of the implementation of learning process management in a computer-based classroom. The research was conducted by an explorative descriptive method, which involved 50 undergraduate, and postgraduate students. The data was obtained through questionnaires, and descriptive analysis of the responses received from students. The results show that most of the students have particularly good attention, and enthusiasm in joining the program. At the time of the scholarship process, there was only a modest number of students who performed the activities with computers in a manner which was not in accordance with the program objectives. They communicated using social media, and playing games, and several were undertaking college assignments, which were not related to the courses that were being taught. Pages 959 to 972

Religious Argumentation of Hate Speech (Critical Race and Racism in Hate Speech Phenomena in Indonesia)

Email: amadesaihu@ptiq.ac.id

This study discusses religious arguments against hate speech in multi-cultural Indonesians from the critical theory of race and racism (CTRR/ Intersectionality), phenomenological research approached using an openness system (infitáhiyyah) and a multi-dimensionality system (taadud al-Ad). Hate speech is not permitted in any religion. The rise of hate speech is caused by the weak understanding of intersectionality (the meeting point of race and racism) and the absence of universal values ​​of religion in the practical social level. Through the approach of critical theory and racism and approached using openness systems (infitáhiyyah) and multi-dimensionality systems (taadud al-Ad), this phenomenological study confirms the importance of bringing together various dimensions of life especially religion when dealing with social complexity. Although hate speech is not justified in religion, many do hate speech in the name of religion. The lack of openness in da'wah and the plurality of life seen through one perspective (mono dimension) leads to hate speech. Thus, bringing together differences, transparency, and multi-dimensionality of attitude becomes a perception that must be carried out in the context of multi-cultural Indonesian society.

Although much literature has discussed critical thinking skills among adult learners, little empirical evidence is directed to exploring what affects adolescent critical thinking skills during social media choice. To fill this identified gap in the existing research, this study aims to investigate the predictors of critical thinking in the context of social media as reviewed through the Theory of Planned Behavior. The respondent case study for this research comprised 386 students from 3 state universities in Malang selected via random sampling technique. Data were analyzed with Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) and the results show that all hypotheses proved significant. An interesting finding can be seen from the effect of digital media literacy on critical thinking through mediating perceptions of behavioral control that is actually weaker than direct influence. This shows that self-confidence can sometimes actually make individuals less careful. Pages 1195 to 1213

Meaningful learning is seen as an important educational goal and a necessity in terms of the challenges confronting us in the 21st century. The selection of the right model can influence meaningful learning. In this paper the jurisprudential inquiry model and expository are compared and juxtaposed with achievement motivation to determine its interaction with the instructional effect of cognitive learning outcomes. A quasi-experimental design was used—the type 2x2 factorial design version pre-test/post-test non-equivalent control group. The research subjects were undergraduate students who were taking Civics Education courses at Universitas Negeri Malang. The research sample was taken by the cluster sampling of as many as four classes with a total of 140 students. Data analysis techniques using the MANOVA technique was also used. The results showed that there were differences in students' cognitive learning outcomes between applying inquiry jurisprudence and expository models. Among students who have high and low achievement motivation there were differences in cognitive learning outcomes. In cognitive learning outcomes, there is no interaction between learning models and achievement motivation. The findings show that the jurisprudential inquiry model and achievement motivation can influence learning outcomes. The jurisprudential inquiry model makes students more motivated, challenged, and interested in learning for individuals and groups. Pages 1247 to 1263

The novelty of this research lies in its ability to explain the process of commodification in the context of the role of the actors who carry out the commodification, the meaning of the Umrah community in the phenomenon of commodification, and the impact of commodification on Muslim hyperreality. This study aims to determine and explain the commodification of Umrah worship through Umrah travel agents by using a qualitative research method and case study approach. The high enthusiasm of Indonesian Muslims for carrying out the Umrah pilgrimage to Mecca and Medina City is a result of the commodification of Umrah travel through Umrah travel agencies transforming transitional forms of worship into commercial commodities. The purpose of worship, which initially sought tranquility, has been turned into a commercial activity with the purpose of making a profit. Commodification makes the meaning of worship more artificial from a religious perspective, and further strengthens the symbolic reality of Muslims (lifestyle) through religious tourism, pilgrimage, leisure, tours and shopping. Umrah is similar to profane worship, which is far from religious dogma. Pages 1550 to 1566

Political parties are a reflection of a democratic state that is believed to be a condition of modern state life. Without pointing to an interest, it is clear that political parties are channelling interests,  the interests of the people and the interests of the authorities. As an institution channelling interests, political parties are used as two-way communication, namely from the top down and also from the bottom up. If it can be implemented well, then the function of political parties as political socialisation, political participation, political communication, articulation of interests, aggregation of interests, and policy making can run well so that the expected political development can be realised. The research method used in this study is a qualitative research method. Through qualitative research, the author has made a complex picture, examined the words, examined the report in detail from the view of the sources, and conducted studies on natural situations. This study aims to find out clearly about the development of political parties in Indonesia, the function of political parties, and political development in the midst of Indonesian society in this modern era. The results showed that political parties in Indonesia were considered to be quite good in carrying out their functions in accordance with the functions of political parties according to the Law of the Republic of Indonesia No. 31 of 2002 and the development of political parties in Indonesia has given a role in controlling conflicts of interest that exist in Indonesian society.

The outdated Indonesian Penal Code means that only six of the 33 Indonesian provinces are free from prison overcrowding. Therefore, the authors propose that the ‘principle of opportunity’ must be applied to waiver unnecessary prosecutions. This study’s sociological juridical data were obtained from Indonesian penitentiary institutions, as primary data, and relevant legislation, as secondary data. The data were analysed using qualitative research methods. The results of this study indicate that for the principle of opportunity to be effective, the definition of ‘public interest’ must be reconstructed. The term should refer to lower class people or those aged 70 years and above, and cover minor cases only. The minor cases may include those resulting in no more than four years of penal sanctions until losses have been replaced, where penal sanctions are fines only or where offences can be penalised by a maximum of one year in prison and/or until the loss has been replaced.

The focuses of this study are, first, how multicultural values are included in Islamic religious education; and second, how the development of multicultural-based Islamic religious education learning is modelled to build a culture of tolerance. Descriptive qualitative research is used, in which informants were selected using purposive sampling and data were collected by observation, interview and document review. The results of this study indicate the following. First, the multicultural values that grow and develop in learning Islamic education are based on the example of the Prophet Muhammad, namely hablum minannas based on morals and the nobility of the nation, which comes from the Qur’an; Hadith, the concept of planting multicultural values in Islamic education and teaching methods; and uswatun hasanah, guidance methods and habituation methods. Second, learning models in learning Islamic education are integrative-holistic, covering formulation of the vision, mission and objectives of the madrasa, developing the competence of teaching and educational staff (attitudes, knowledge, and pedagogical) and the form of the multicultural curriculum.

Framing and Responsibility in Decision-Making: An Examination of Prospect Theory and Fuzzy-Trace Theory

Susanto Barkaha*, Rahmawati Rahmawatib, Djuminah Djuminahc, Muthmainah Muthmainahd, aDoctoral Program in Economic Sciences, Universitas Sebelas Maret/ Universitas Muhammadiyah Magelang, b,c,dUniversitas Sebelas Maret, Department of Accounting, Surakarta, Indonesia, Email: a*susantobarkah20@gmail.com

Several previous studies found that information which is presented differently — hereinafter referred to as ‘framing’ — would result in different decisions. This research proposes and examines two different theories to determine which one is more effective at explaining a phenomenon, as well as two influential conditions regarding whether it is more challenging to an individual’s decision to take a risk or avoid the risk. These conditions are: arranging alternative decisions; and the level or responsibility for a decision, concerning previous investment. This research employed an experimental study method, using a  2 x 2 x 2 subject design. There were 180 participants. The analysing instrument to examine the hypothesis was a crosstab. The findings showed that decision-making was different when the information was positively or negatively framed, and when a person was taking the full responsibility of an investment or not taking the full responsibility upon the initial investment, as well as the different preferences while using different theories.

Kanthong Buraa, Nopraenue Sajjarax Dhirathitib, a,bFaculty of Social Sciences and Humanities, Mahidol University, Thailand,

The purpose of this research was to provide suggestions for improving the efficiency, and effectiveness of the mass transit system services in Bangkok. Using a quantitative research approach, the data was collected from 1,290 users of the Bangkok Mass Transit System (BTS), the Chaloem Ratchamonkhon Line (MRT), and the Suvarnabhumi Airport Rail Link (ARL), and was analysed using factor analysis, and multiple regression. The results found that for each route, the service quality, transfer transit, and integration of the service transit system affected the efficiency, and effectiveness in different ways. Thus, it is suggested that each route should develop the service quality, transfer transit, and integration of the service transit system for the improved efficiency, and effectiveness of the integrated mass transit system services in Bangkok. Moreover, there must be a central government agency which should develop the service quality, transfer, and integration of the service transit system criteria through the co-planning, co-designing, and implementation of the public services with the related agencies.

Design and Application of E-Policing: Police Practice Management Through the use of Information Technology in Indonesia

Chryshnanda Dwilaksanaa, aSekolah Tinggi Ilmu Kepolisian, Jakarta, Indonesia

As one of the state agencies with a high workload, the police are required to be competent and professional in carrying out their duties in order to maintain public security. Regarding the implementation of police duties, many aspects of information technology has been adopted through e-policing to maintain order and facilitate the identification of violations and criminality. This study seeks to analyse the management and technical aspects of e-policing development in Indonesia. This study was conducted using a qualitative method, with a literature review and observation approach to e-policing systems in Indonesia. The study results show that e-policing, specifically in Indonesia, is useful in the context of organisational management for the effectiveness of community services and tasks. In the technical context, some of the main elements that need to be considered in e-policing are back-office, network, and applications that are adequate and easy to use. The adoption of e-policing is also useful for social and managerial harmonisation in police institutions, where policing can electronically bridge the management and implementation of tasks, as well as the relations with the community.

Creating a Model of Land Procurement in Order to Support and Accelerate Infrastructure Development

Nurhayati. Aa, aUniversitas Dharmawangsa, Medan,  Indonesia, Email: anurhayatijb@yahoo.co.id

In human life, land is a place for humans to live and continue their lives. The dynamics of development cause the need for land to increase while on the other hand the supply of land is very limited. The government needs land for infrastructure development for social purposes, while land rights holders are in dire need of compensation money to buy land and rebuild their homes. Indonesia is a State of Law (Rechstaat), which upholds deliberation for consensus, and justice occupies a very important position. This aspect of deliberation must be realised, otherwise it will cause prolonged conflict. In the implementation of community land rights, taking is often carried out arbitrarily, without justice and is detrimental to the community due to compensation. Islamic law in implementing the procurement / release of land rights using the system of buying and selling is beneficial and fair for the community. Pages 74 to 91

Sexual euphemisms can be very difficult to translate because they are culturally bound words. Translation techniques can help the translator in determining the most suitable equivalents for a euphemism. This study aims at finding out translation techniques used by the translator of the novel Duke of Her Own in translating English sexual euphemisms into Indonesian, and how those techniques cause shifts in the functions of sexual euphemism. This is a descriptive qualitative study. The sources of data of this study are an English novel by Eloisa James, Duke of her Own, and its Indonesian version, Pasangan Sempurna. The result of the study shows that 7 techniques are applied in translating English sexual euphemisms, namely, Established Equivalent, Modulation, Explication, Description, Discursive Creation, Generalisation, and Reduction. Two of those techniques, namely Established equivalent and Modulation, do not cause any shifts in the functions of sexual euphemisms whereas the other 5 do. Pages 92 to 107

Competition in product marketing requires entrepreneurs to integrate various marketing strategies. The factors of customer loyalty creation need to be known by marketers. This study aims to analyse the role of satisfaction as moderation to the effect of relational marketing and customer value on customer loyalty. This is a survey research. The population is traditional food stall consumers. Research like this has never been done, especially in the micro business segment, which is run traditionally. A total of 100 samples are selected by purposive random sampling. Data is collected by interviews, observations and questionnaires. The data is analysed by SEM (structural equation modelling) with AMOS 20. The results show that relational marketing, customer value, and satisfaction affect customer loyalty. Satisfaction does not moderate the effect of relational marketing and customer value on customer loyalty. This means that satisfied consumers are not directly loyal; there are other variables of consumer behaviour that also effect customer loyalty. Traditional stalls should provide a suggestion box to receive complaints and advice from consumers, as well as new menus that are not yet available, to improve service quality.Pages 108 to 122

Leadership and organisational culture are considered two sides of the same coin and are regarded as the most crucial organisational elements that help firms compete successfully and gain sustainable advantage. We aim to examine the interconnection between these elements and conduct an in-depth theoretical research paper focusing on these elements and the different variables related to them. The study deeply examines the theoretical literature associated with various definitions of culture and its correlation with leadership, and comes up finally with results and recommendations. The researchers are also examining whether the nature of the relationship can be determined by market conditions, like the level of competition and the organisational age and scale. Market competition appears to affect the direction of the relationship, with the corresponding impact of operational age and size. Such findings show that both organisational factors contribute significantly, while the alignment of factors (identical cultural type and leadership style) improves this connection. Such observations refer to the work of Hofstede (1980), the most commonly quoted work on the subject (Bond, 2002). Hofstede used the five-dimension method (power distance, individualism vs. collectivism, avoidance of confusion, long-term orientation) for the development of national–cultural profiles. Since no significant market changes took place over the last five years (in terms of reform or privatisation), leadership and culture are most likely associated with a transparent system. Some studies argue that leaders are cultural, but they also transform culture by imposing new values, trends and standards of behaviour. Pages 123 to 147

The lack of communication between parents, teachers, and the boards of childcare centres, as well as the lack of funding were found to be the problems causing the inefficacy of education services for early childhood education. Through the use of the mixed method approach, this study intended to examine the situation of early child care centres in the Khon Kaen Municipality of North-eastern  Thailand in order to propose alternative guidelines for effective management – that is, to ‘co-create’ education services. By allowing stakeholders to communally design education services for their children, it was found that co-creation of delivering educational services for early childhood  can help involved parties to realise their roles, enhance equal and reciprocal relationship as well as boost citizens’ trust in the government, which will eventually lead to a better management of the services.

The Boarding School Assessment Model as a Transformative Teacher Performance Culture in Indonesian Islamic Education

Abdul Qodira, aState Institute for Islamic Studies, Palangkaraya, Indonesia, Email: aabdul.qodir@iain-palangkaraya.ac.id

In research on Boarding School education, little empirical evidence addresses how the assessment model in Boarding School is practiced and how this assessment supports teacher performance. To fill this void, this paper reports on grounded theoretical research that investigates how Boarding School-based assessment is enacted in Islamic boarding schools in Kalimantan, Indonesia. The findings of this study suggest several aspects aligned during the enactment of this Boarding School-based assessment. These include 1) the educational assessment model under the auspices of the Boarding School being built on the basis of the Boarding School value system, 2) the assessment being practiced as a new breakthrough in improving teacher performance, 3) message-based assessment being seen as more effective in learning as well as a new paradigm in improving the quality of Boarding School education and becoming a leading form of Islamic education (central to excellence).

School teachers are actively carrying out Research on the application of realistic content. Virtual reality (VR) is one of the new tools in different school settings. Learners might have different grades of skills depending on their educational background: elementary, secondary, and university (prep teacher). Therefore, it is necessary to provide a VR curriculum suitable for each school level. For each school level, different curricular programs were created on how to produce VR. Education using them was conducted for 18 student teachers in college, 32 elementary school students (6th grade), and 5 middle school students (7th grade). The results of each school-level VR curriculum program were statistically analysed using questionnaires and follow-up interviews. For all school level learners, elementary school students tried to create topics they were interested in. Middle school students created content based on the topics related to learning and studying. Prep teachers preferred the topics related to field education and suggested the need for an additional training program on VR. In particular, most learners found it difficult to use Blockly, a coding domain. We hope that research in curricular programs regarding realistic content for different school levels, such as augmented reality (AR) and holograms (which are related fields of VR), will be studied in the future.

The purpose of this article is to explain the differences in resilience and grit between pre-service kindergarten and elementary school teachers in South Korea. The participants were a total of 222 pre-service kindergarten teachers (n=101) and elementary school teachers (n=121) attending three four-year universities located in Seoul and Gyeonggi-do. Resilience and grit were measured by questionnaires for pre-service teachers. The analysis of the data included calculating the frequency and percentage of the participants, Cronbach’s α, the mean, standard deviation, t-test, and multiple regression using the SPSS 20.0 program. According to the results of the research, there were significant differences in resilience and grit between kindergarten and elementary school pre-service teachers. The average score of the pre-service elementary school teachers’ resilience and grit were significantly higher. In addition, differences in the analysis of the effects of resilience on grit were identified by separating groups of pre-service elementary and pre-service kindergarten teachers. Specifically, in the pre-service elementary school teachers' group, self-control and positivity (among the sub-areas of resilience) were significant to consistency of interest as a sub-area of grit. Only self-control was significant to perseverance of effort in grit. In the pre-service kindergarten teachers' group, only self-control was significant to consistency of interest in grit. Self-control and positivity were significant to perseverance of effort in grit. These results indicate that there are differences in the relationship between pre-service kindergarten teachers and elementary teachers. Therefore, it is suggested that different strategies are needed to increase the grit of pre-service teachers. The results involve implications for teacher education programs at university regarding the connection of education programs between kindergarten and elementary school. Pages 223 to 234

Many studies have been conducted on foreign language training, but it is difficult to speak a foreign language naturally because there is little or no speaking time for the learner, compared to the teaching time. As a change in the foreign language speaking education method is applied using smart devices, it is necessary to develop a new user-centred speech learning system and education model. To develop a user-centred speech learning system using machine learning and speech recognition technology to improve speech fluency, we designed a user-centred speech training system and analysed the speech patterns of users using existing speech learning programs. We developed machine learning-based adaptive learning algorithms for recommending speaking areas. We designed user and instructor applications for speech learning and experiments that can be applied in real-life education. Based on the designed and developed method, we developed and evaluated the education model using the speech training system through a non-real-time foreign language speech training system similar to a real-time learning setting. After using the system with actual students, we analysed the students’ learning satisfaction and academic achievement and found that students’ motivation and practice time influenced foreign language learning.

The aim of this study is to find the functions of compound hedges as hedging devices and their translation in target text (TT). Translation techniques used in translating this hedging device are translation techniques proposed by Molina and Albir (2002). The theory used in expressing the function of hedging devices is the theory of Prince, Frader and Bosk (1982). They divide the types of hedging devices in two: approximators and shields. Approximators consist of adaptors and rounders. Shields consist of plausibility shields and attribution shields. This research is a qualitative descriptive study. The data source used is the novel Sherlock Holmes and its translation. There are 27 pieces of data considered adaptors, 2 pieces of data considered rounders, 10 pieces of data considered plausibility shields and 9 pieces of data considered attribution shields. There are 18 pieces of data translated using established equivalent (EE), 18 pieces of data translated using modulation (M), 8 pieces of data using discursive creation (DC), and 4 pieces of data using reduction (R). By using establish equivalent compound hedges, they are translated with compound hedges in TT. The functions of the compound hedges in source text (ST) are also translated equally in the TT. There are some changing points of view when the compound hedges are translated into TT. This technique might cause a shift. In the DC and R techniques, the translator did not translate the compound hedges. As a result, the functions of compound hedges in the TT are deleted. Pages 248 to 260

It also investigates how students’ English proficiency influences their ability to comprehend the poem. The study was conducted with twenty-one participants who attended a literary class named Literary Criticism. The twenty-one students who analysed the meaning of poetry were represented by student one and other students (S1-S3) in every line of the stanza of the poetry. that author of the poetry was successful in conveying their meaning to the readers of EFL, which is shown by the results of students’ work through the reader-response approach and stylistic approach. Student one and others (S1 up to S3) could find the meaning in every of poetry by analysing either literal words or similes and metaphorical words composed in “The Road Not Taken” by Robert Frost. Hence, the readers (students of EFL) could enhance their abilities and comprehension of the poem. The pedagogical implication for future research is that authors and readers of the poem both need logical critical thinking as well as skills or abilities to convey and receive the meaning of poetry.

The Influence of Market Orientation and Competitive Strategy on the Hotel Image

Tanty Sondaria, Sucherlyb, Meydia Hasanc, Imas Soemaryanid, aThe Student of Management Science Doctoral, Universitas Padjadjaran, Bandung. Indonesia, b,c,dLecturer of Management Science Doctoral, Universitas Padjadjaran, Bandung. Indonesia

Hotel occupancy rates in West Java have increased to quite high levels. However, there are problem phenomena related to the images of one, two, and three star hotels.  The background of the problem reveals a phenomena related to market orientation and competitive strategy carried out by the hotel which  allegedly affects the image of the hotel. This study uses an explanatory survey method to test the hypothesis that states the causal relationship between the variables tested. The observations in this study are carried out in the cross sectional / one shot time horizon, that is in 2019. The analysis unit is the one, two and three star hotel industry in West Java, with the observation unit as the management of the hotel companies. The sample is taken from as many as 50 respondents. Due to the small sample size,  the analysis approach that will be used is Partial Least Square (PLS). The results of hypothesis testing reveal that market orientation and competitive strategy affect the images of one, two and three star hotels in West Java. The competitive strategy has a greater contribution than the market orientation in building the image of the hotel. The competitive strategy is built by three dimensions, namely: cost leadership, differentiation strategy, and speed-based strategy. Cost leadership has the greatest role in driving the growth of hotel image, compared to differentiation strategy, and speed-based strategy. Meanwhile, market orientation is built by three dimensions, namely: customer orientation, competitor orientation, and inter-functional coordination. Customer orientation plays the greatest role in enhancing the hotel image. This finding has implications for the management of one, two and three star hotels in West Java, that improving the image of hotels can be pursued by improving competitive strategies that are supported by the development of market orientation. This research is only conducted on 50 respondents of hotel management related to market orientation, competitive strategy and hotel image.  Future studies can examine other variables such as the business environment, company capability, or collaborations that allegedly can affect the hotel image. The  research in the analysis unit of the hotel industry of one, two, and three, star hotels in West Java, makes this research useful as input for hotel management and related stakeholders in developing the hospitality industry.

The Prevalence of  Unethical Leadership Behaviour: The Role of Organisational Oversight

Abderrahmane Benlahcenea, Houcine Meddourb, aSchool of Government University Utara Malaysia, bSchool of Business Management University Utara Malaysia, Email: aabdoben88@gmail.com,  bhoucine@uum.edu.my

The purpose of this paper is to explore the role of organisational oversight in predicting unethical leadership behaviour within  Algerian public companies. Using an exploratory qualitative design, 15 semi-structured interviews were conducted with leaders currently serving in Algerian public companies. The findings showed that ineffective rules enforcement, lack of control mechanisms, lack of transparency and access to information, and positive reinforcement are the underlying precursors of unethical leadership behaviour. The generalisation of findings is difficult, since the study relies on a small qualitative sample size from the Algerian context. However, the study offers a proper analysis of selected organisational factors that predict  unethical leadership behaviour. The study presents important implications for public companies and grounds for further research. This study also enriches our understanding of  unethical leadership behaviour. In summary, the study provides practice and policy implications that can improve the development of effective organisational oversight mechanisms in this context. Pages 310 to 325

This paper aims to analyse the view of  Islamicfinance scholars and bankers regarding the internalisation of the trust concept within  Islamic banking transactions (IBTs) and to examine how that concept is observed within the reasoning underlying the performance of these transactions. This paper involves face-to-face interviews and employing an open-ended questionnaire, in order to study the understanding of our informants on the issue of our concern. The interviews were conducted with selected informants from various Islamic financial institutions and universities in Malaysia. This study found that there is a consensus, expressed by our informants, regarding the importance of trust in  Islamic finance. However, with respect to the current Islamic finance practices, the participating informants contended that the internalisation of the trust concept is based entirely on the formal (mathematical) models of reasoning employed by the conventional banks, which negates the substance of trust for neglecting the general Islamic principles and values, as the reasoning postulates the underlying performance of the IBTs.

Turning Students from Job Seekers into Job Creators: The Role of High Impact Entrepreneurship Educational Practices

Subramaniam Sri Ramalua, Gunalan Nadarajahb, Adejare Yusuff Aremuc, a,b,cOthman Yeop Abdullah Graduate School of Business Universiti Utara Malaysia

This study focuses on the role of High Impact Entrepreneurship Educational Practices (HIEEP) in turning students from job seekers into job creators. The main objective of this study is to examine the direct and indirect effects of the Entrepreneurship Internship Program, Business Incubation Program and Entrepreneurial Supportive Environment on Entrepreneurial Self-Employment mediated by Entrepreneurial Education Knowledge. This quantitative research employed a survey method to collect the data. The data were collected from the students of three public Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) operating in the Northern region of Malaysia. Simple random sampling was used to choose the sample. A total of 664 questionnaires were distributed and 348 were returned, out of which 332 were useable. Meanwhile, the data analysis was performed using PLS-SEM 3.2.8. The results showed that the Entrepreneurship Internship Program, Business Incubation Program, Entrepreneurial Supportive Environment and Entrepreneurial Education Knowledge programs have a significant direct relationship with the Entrepreneurial Self-Employment. Entrepreneurial Education Knowledge also mediates the relationship between the Entrepreneurship Internship Program, Business Incubation Program, Entrepreneurial Supportive Environment and Entrepreneurial Self-Employment among the students, which implies that they will influence students to become job creators instead of job seekers. The findings provide important insights to universities, faculties and ministries of education, government, policy makers and researchers to understand the critical role of HEIs support and HIEEP to shape  students’ intentions in becoming self-employed upon graduating. Equally, the findings contribute to the existing literature by empirically and theoretically extending the knowledge on entrepreneurial education in turning students from job seekers into job creators.

Technology is ubiquitous and becoming necessary for everyday communications. Together with personal and professional use, its applicability is widespread in every field of life, including education. Increased use of technology has been identified as causing stress, particularly among the younger generation, due to overload and complexity, which bring anxiety. To combat stress, individual differences such as personality, social, cultural, emotional and psychological wellbeing is required for sustainable development in a healthy learning environment. A massive increase in Indonesian society is expected due to the government road map towards making the country's biggest south Asian digital economy until 2025. The current study, based on a literature review, proposed a framework for higher educational institutes for contesting rapid technological  interventions in Indonesian education. The strategic perspective of the study is two-fold, addressing institutional and personal strategies and defining mechanisms through  overall personal and environmental well-being.

The current study aims to investigate servant leadership and religiosity of the employee as a performance indicator in the educational sector. First, we discuss leadership concepts, then achieving individual performance through servant leadership. Later, educational management leadership and servant leadership studies and finally, servant leadership, and religiosity with performance. Empirical analysis was on the basis of 323 respondents working in higher education participating in the current study through a survey questionnaire. Among R. K. Greenleaf (1977); Spears (1998) a few servant leadership characteristics,  for example, cultural leaders, social justice, empowering others and stewardship are hypothesised and tested with religiosity with employee performance. The results through regression analysis suggest servant leadership is a proactive predictor of employee performance and the relationship is strengthened when tested with religiosity. The study contributes to much-needed study on educational leadership and management studies in Asia (Hallinger & Chen, 2015). Pages 391 to 409

Corporate Governance and Corporate Social Responsibility Disclosure Quality in Indonesian Companies

Ikbar Pratamaa, Noriah Che-Adamb, Hasnah Kamardinc, a,b,cTunku Puteri Intan Safinaz School of Accountancy, Universiti Utara Malaysia,

The role of corporate governance in the corporate social responsibility disclosure of a company cannot be denied. According to the theory of legitimacy, stakeholder and agency, members of a company's board should monitor the activities of self-interested management to minimise the expenditure cost. Outside directors are expected to execute better performances than the executives, given that outside directors are responsible to increase shareholders’ benefits. However, there have been inconsistent results on the relationship between corporate governance on corporate social responsibility disclosure of  companies. Thus, this paper aims to examine the relationship between corporate governance attributes (political connections, women’s proportion, multi-ethnicity, family ownership, and the composition of the board and foreign ownership of the board) on corporate social responsibility disclosure quality among 353 public listed companies in the Indonesia Stock Exchange in the year 2017. Data of the corporate social responsibility disclosure quality are taken from the environment and social items disclosed in the annual report. Multiple regression analysis is used to analyse the relationship between corporate governance attributes on corporate social responsibility disclosure quality. Findings of this study show that political connections of boards of commissioners, the composition of boards of directors and foreign ownership  significantly influence corporate social responsibility disclosure quality.

Determinants on the Extent of Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) Disclosure in Annual Reporting:  An Indonesian Study

Dwi Linda Rahmawatia, Khusnul Prasetyob*, a,bDepartment of Accountancy, Faculty of Economics and Business, Universitas Airlangga, Indonesia. Email: b*khusnul.prasetyo@feb.unair.ac.id

This study aims to analyse factors that determine the extent of Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) disclosure in a company’s annual report. This study analysed manufacturing companies listed on the Indonesian Stock Exchange for the years 2015-2018. Using linear regression analysis, we found that Risk Management Committee (RMC) and managerial ownership had a significant relationship with the extent of ERM disclosure. However, the proportion of independent board of commissioners, auditor reputation, liquidity and leverage does not relate to the extent of ERM disclosure in a company’s annual report. This study implies that companies that want extensive disclosure about Enterprise Risk Management can do so by forming Risk Management Committees and increase managerial ownership in the company.

Andrivan Nindya Krisnaa, Amalia Rizkib*, a,bDepartment of Accountancy, Faculty of Economics and Business, Universitas Airlangga, Indonesia. Email:   b*amalia.rizki@feb.unair.ac.id

This research intends to obtain empirical evidence to determine the relationship between a business and the external audit service fee. Using the modified model from research of Simunic (1980), this research took balanced samples from 26 manufacturing firms listed on the Indonesian Stock Exchange (IDX) from the period 2014 to 2016 in order to represent the population of manufacturing firms listed in that time period. Using audit fees as dependent variable and firm size, audit complexity, audit risk, and Big-Four audit firms’ premium, this research tried to find out the relationship between those variables, using multiple linear regression as the method to achieve that goal. The result of this research shows that there is a correlative relationship between firm size, audit complexity, audit risk, and ‘Big-Four’ audit firms’ in regard to a premium positive and audit fee.
