Jaafar Shaheed Hashima, aBaghdad University, College of Media.

Slogans are one of the important methods used by parties, blocs and political figures to promote their electoral programs and to communicate the contents of those programs to the public. They are used as they received great attention by these parties and blocs during election periods and various political events and events. The importance of the research comes from the view of the cognitive approach.

Rana Sabeeh Abbooda, aUniversity of Misan, Basic Education College, Math Department.

The agricultural sector is of great importance in the progress and development of the country’s economy, especially developing countries. It is the first pillar of social and economic development, so it has increased interest in them and the advancement of their reality in most countries. There have been weak contributions both in raw materials and foodstuffs in recent years compared to before 2003, when the Iraqi agricultural sector suffered a significant shortage of local production, especially the production of crops (wheat and barley), which led to the failure of covering the local consumption of individuals and resort to importing, which weakens the budget of the state. The current research dealt with the analysis of the agricultural reality in the province of Maysan to produce wheat and barley crops because the province is one of the governorates that are famous in the cultivation of these crops and know the factors that affect their agriculture.

The present study attempts to examine the determinants of social media use by the handicraft industry of Indonesia and its impact on export and marketing performance. The primary data were collected from a sample of 301 respondents. To examine the impact of incorporated variables on the marketing and export performance, confirmatory factors analysis and structural equation modelling approach are incorporated in the study. Several tests were applied including descriptive analysis, KMO and Bartlett’s test, rotated component matrix, convergent and discriminant validity. The results showed significant differences in direct and indirect effects. The direct effects indicated that perceived ease of use and subjective norm are the insignificant predictors of marketing performance, whereas relative advantage significantly predicts marketing performance. Likewise, for export performance, perceived ease of use and relative advantage are found as significant predictors. Meanwhile, the indirect effects showed that social media use significantly mediates the relationship of perceived ease of use, relative advantage, subjective norm and marketing performance. On the contrary, no mediation of subjective norm is observed in the relationship between subjective norm and export performance. Social media use acts as a significant mediator in the relationship between perceived ease of use, relative advantage and export performance. In addition, the study embraces several theoretical, practical and policy-making implications for the marketing management practitioners and strategy developers to attain high levels of marketing and export performance with the utilisation of social media. Lastly, various limitations are discussed for in-depth findings by future researchers. Pages 83 to 103

Corporate Social Responsibility: Should it be Legislated or Value-Driven?

Yasir S. Tabooka, Sagaran Gopalb, Sulochana Nairc, a,b,cBinary University of Management and Entrepreneurship Malaysia,

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) has become a popular global term that many governments worldwide seek to use as motivation amongst business communities for society’s  well-being. The scope of this conceptual paper is to evaluate the ins and outs of voluntary versus mandated approaches for practising CSR through discussing the relevant literature. The authors aim to utilise the evaluation to propose effective strategies that employ key advantages of both approaches to lead to mutually targeted CSR objectives.  The conceptual discussion resulted in  three main propositions  which are expected to sustain the   effectiveness of  CSR policies. The first proposition reveals  the government’s role in providing  proper guidance and support needed by companies to conveniently practise CSR even before activating any mandated regulations . The second proposition includes adopting a mix of voluntary policy measures and complementary regulations to enhance companies’ abilities to better address social problems and create social impact. Finally, the main proposition consists of maintaining strategic collaborations between governments, companies, and other partners or stakeholders in the CSR arena to jointly develop effective measures for sustainable improvements.

Delianaa*, Felicia Oscarb, a,bEnglish department, Faculty of Cultural Studies, Universitas Sumatera Utara, Email: a*deliana413@gmail.com

This study explores the sentence structure of Colloquial Singaporean English (CSE) and how it differs from Standard English (SE). A descriptive qualitative method is employed as the research design. The data source  is  the dialogue of five comic strips which are purposively chosen from Speaking Singlish comic strips.  Data is in the form of sentences totalling  34 declaratives, 20 wh- interrogatives, 14 yes-no interrogatives, 3 imperatives and 1 exclamative. The results present the sentence structure of CSE found in the data generally constructed by one subject, one predicate, and occasionally one discourse element. The subject is a noun phrase while the predicate varies amongst  noun, adjective, adverb, and verb phrases– particularly in copula deletion. On the other hand, there are several differences between the sentence structure of CSE and SE in the data including the use of copula, topic sentence, discourse elements, adverbs, unmarked plural noun and past tense.

The Power of Talk in King and Rose’s Short Stories

Dunya Muhammed Miqdad Ijama, aUniversity of Babylon, Iraq, Department of English Language, College of Education for Human Sciences, University of Babylon, 51002 Babel Governorate, Iraq, Email:  adunya.ijam@uobabylon.edu.iq, dunya.ijam@gmail.com

The power of talk depends on one’s  dominance, control and confidence . In various situations, we might say that men are more powerful than women in communicating. We may also say that these  days everything has changed, and  women are more powerful speakers than men while  others believe that men and women are equal in their commination style. This study examines two modern short stories: The American by  Stephen King and The British by Christopher Rose. Both show that there is power of talk between men and women in conversations, however each  expresses it in a specific way. The aims of this study include examining the powerful features of talking for both genders,  recognising whether men or women are powerful communicators or whether both genders are equal in their  communication style and to investigate whether all  strategies used by both genders are employed by the two authors. In order to achieve these aims, a new model is developed based on several studies available in the literature. The main conclusion  is that currently, women are not as submissive as they were in  previous centuries. Men are not the only  powerful communicators equipped with dominance and control in various  situations. In contrast, men use a powerless style whereas women use a powerful style in special situations, even within cross-gendered communication. Pages 135 to 149

The Arab Kingdoms before Islam in the Narrations of “Al-Durrah Al-Yatima Fi Akhbar Al-Umem Al-Qadima” by Al-Dawadari (737 AH / 1336AD) - A Critical Reading

Osama Kadhim Omrana, aDept. of History, College of Education for Human Sciences ,University of Babylon –Iraq, Email: aosamakazem1980@gmail.com

This study  seeks to discover  historical evidence amongst  recipient by relying on  news accounts which were adopted by Al-Dawadari in  “Al-Durrah Al-Yatima  Fi Akhbar Al-Umem Al-Qadima” (Al-Durrah Al-Yatima in the News of the Old Nations) as a source model  which  relied on the historiography of the  Arabian Peninsula before Islam with the political level of the kingdoms of “Al-Hira,” Ghassasinah, Kinda and the Kingdom of Humair in ancient Yemen, which led to historical events that support the text’s apparent and covert  criticism for the purpose of deconstruction and reconstruction , to become aware of the range of  logical dimension  by extracting the in-depth narrative value of Al-Dowadari’s writings  which  unfold   during ancient times. As the author’s  history begins with a reference to the era of Adam  (peace be upon him), through “Noah’s sight (peace be upon him),” along to the “Arab and Persian kingdoms in preparation for” the history of the master of messengers, Muhammad, may God bless him and grant him peace.  Al-Dawadari’s narration is distinguished by its exemplary nature, which is prone to  shortening the text in a way that adapts to the historical approach which is based on the principle of brevity, however he believes that this will accelerate the readers’ understanding of his material by the shortest way possible . He differs “in his material up and down,” that was clear “in his definition of the kingdom of Al-Hira, which was dominated by expansion that was compared to the kingdoms of Ghassasinah, Kinda and Homiar. The research has produced results that contribute to deciphering the events that were presented by Al-Dawadari, some of which were manifested by the appearance of legend and choice, others  dominated by a lack of control and objectivity due to the “time and place of Al-Dawadari of the events that he narrates.” Pages 150 to 167

Through the Ministry of Education and Culture, the Indonesian Government has made improvements towards education standards. One of these is the assessment standard, which  refers to international assessment standards primarily related to  critical and analytical thinking. In micro the scale,  assessment conducted by  teachers is expected to be able to improve students' high order thinking skills (HOTS). As a result,  the focus of this study is to determine the percentage of HOTS questions contained in formative assessments made by teachers. This research is classified as a descriptive study involving 27 Mathematics teachers in the province of Bali, Indonesia. Each collected item is  analysed using the cognitive level of the revised Bloom. The result shows that 9.47% of  teachers’ questions are  categorised as questions  which evaluate  HOTS  dominated by  cognitive  analysis (C4). This percentage does not meet the criteria of the minimum limit of HOTS questions in national exams of 10-15% or even much lower when compared to HOTS questions in the PISA assessment, which is a minimum of 20%. Furthermore, the interview results indicate that the average teacher does  not quite understand the process of compiling HOTS questions. Therefore, HOTS training  needs to be improved.

This research examines the influence between access to financing and performance through the mediation of  entrepreneurial-oriented finance in batik SMEs. The structural equation modelling (SEM) analysis results of 265 SMEs reveal that entrepreneurial-oriented finance has an influence between financing access and SME performance. A positive direct effect is found in the relationship between financing access and entrepreneurial-oriented finance as well as entrepreneurial-oriented finance and SME performance. Entrepreneurial-oriented finance has a full mediation role in financing access towards SME performance. No positive influence is found between financing access and SME performance. Based on the research results, in order to improve  business performance, it is not enough to only rely on financing access. Entrepreneurs should also  improve their ability to obtain and utilise funds to develop their businesses. Therefore, the financial aspect can optimise  business performance through entrepreneurial oriented financial activities completed by entrepreneurs. Pages 203 to 224

The effects of leadership styles on organisational innovativeness are still arguable due to inconsistencies. Many researchers have analysed the direct and indirect relationships with antecedent variables of organisational innovativeness. The influence of transformational leadership styles has been widely approved to have an effect to organisational innovativeness. However, organisations sometimes fail to achieve their organisational innovativeness due to their limited understanding of the relationships between leadership, and knowledge-based empowering interaction that will enhance organisational innovativeness. This study is constructed to fill a research gap between Digital Transformational Leadership Styles and Organisational Innovativeness with Knowledge-Based Empowering Interaction as  mediator. It deploys 32 digital firms’ owners and executives in Indonesia as samples. Data was gathered through online questionnaire of Likert’s Scales, and analysed with Smart Partial Least Squares. The result shows that organisations should consider the Knowledge-Based Empowering Interaction to increase Organisational Innovativeness. Pages 225 to 243

The Significance of Colours in Al-Snobbery poetry (D 334 AH)

Muhammad Khalid Nazima, aSuni Endowment Office Investment Authority, Email: am-2006-78@yahoo.com

When the poet talks about life troubles in all its forms and within the framework of the discussion of his suffering from it, we find it tends to potray a yellow colour and its hierarchies, as an expression of a group of psychological cures and of psychological tension stages. When describing nature and its enchantment from charming appearances, our poet tends to focus on a white colour in his poetic imagery. He to illustrate the colours of the solar spectrum (green, red, black, and blue), as each colour has its own individual suggestive significance within its poetic text. When our poet relies on mixing the colour significance within his poetic text, we find that he benefits from the significance energies of contrasting colours (black and white) and its effect on shaping his poetic imagery, as well as making use of the significance energies of colours to highlight the aesthetic feature in the composition of his poetic texts. The research noted the mixing of colours and their entry into various aesthetic relations, including the relationship of harmony between opposites and similarities, and each colour played a role in serving the poetic imagery.

Implementation of Grameen Bank patterns resulted in a decrease in the level of significant poverty by providing funds to small businesses, especially by making provisions to unsecured women workers. Grameen Bank adoption in this study is based on sharia by forming a working group and adopting a joint responsibility system in overcoming the problem of loan repayment. However, if the working group does not know its potential, then it is unlikely that the Grameen Bank can run. This study includes qualitative results through the ABCD Model driven by the community itself. The results showed that the process of changing the mindset of Madura batik women community through the Focus Group Discussion was very effective when using the ABCD model. The Sharia-based bank grameen program in the community assistance process provides convenience and is not burdensome. The process of building potential by inviting discussion about self-potential is continued through workgroups that support one another. Pages 405 to 418

Ahmed Abdulrazaq AbdulRudhaa*, Mohammed Rasool Makkib, Falah Thamer Alwanc, a,bMiddle Technical University Kut Technical Institute, cMiddle Technical University Suwaira Technical Institute, Email: a*ahmed.albakri@mtu.edu.iq

The general budget in Iraq is the budget of items, which is a budget since 1921 and this type focuses on the basis of public expenditure and not the purpose of alimony. There is also no commitment to the timing of the preparation and approval of the general budget in accordance with the Financial Management Law and Public Debt No. 95 of 2004. The Financial Management Act of 2004 requires that the federal budget be prepared in accordance with the principles of transparency. However, it is noted that the budget is prepared and discussed without announcing the attached tables and without showing the government's debts for the two years preceding the preparation of the budget, as stated in section / 7/2 / c,of the Financial Management Law. Moreover, the scientific studies that could benefit the financial plan are not from the annual required. Pages 494 to 503

The study investigates the realisation of invitation refusals by Iraqi native speakers of Arabic and Iraqi Kurds who speak Arabic as a second language in Iraqi Arabic dialect. Data was obtained from a modified version of an open-ended Written Discourse Completion Task comprising of three situations in which the participants as lower status interlocutors were to refuse invitations from higher status interlocutors with close, familiar and distant social distance and were analysed descriptively according to a modified classification of semantic formulas developed by Beebe, Takahashi, and Uliss-Weltz (1990). Indirect refusal and adjuncts were the most frequent strategies used by both groups. However, Iraqi Kurds tended to use direct refusals more than Iraqi Arabs. Excuse was the most frequent semantic formula used by Iraqi Arabs in all levels of social distance. On the other hand, excuse was the most frequent semantic formulas by Iraqi Kurds only when the interlocutors have familiar social relation while negative willingness/ability was the most frequent strategy used when they have close and distant social relation with the interlocutor. Compliment, recompensing, address term, and sense of loss were only used by Iraqi Arabs while performative and let the interlocutor off the hook were only used by Iraqi Kurds. Teachers may use the findings to raise awareness among the two groups in regard to the differences and similarities in realisations of the speech act of invitation refusal. The findings will also help in reducing misunderstanding in any possible interaction between Iraqi Arabs and Iraqi Kurds, and thus enhancing solidarity. Previous studies focused on the social status while social distance has not been given its due importance. The present study focuses on social status and social distance. Pages 532 to 550

Most industries focus on how to get profit from processing, and transmitting even in tourism industry. Technology has been used to meet the need of travellers in order to access information on flights, routes, hotels, transportation and others by themselves. There are some techniques of computer science to solve the travelling problem such as Artificial Intelligence and Animal stimulation. Thus, this research proposes how to apply Ant Colony Optimisation to the travelling problem. As the result, brute force was taken in to consideration to compare with the capabilities of The Ant Colony System. The obtained results from Ant Colony System have some routes that match the Brutes Force‘s shortest distance, but some do not. When looking at the performance of the algorithm, the processing time to generate all possible paths of the Brute Force takes more time than Ant Colony System. The efficiency of the Brute Force algorithm is Big O2 while Any Colony System only Big O.  Ant Colony System by adding other conditions such as changing vehicles at each tourist attraction, adding break point such as gas stations or restaurants which is able to complete the planning. It can be further expanded into a system of advice tourism for tourist attractions recommended plan. Pages 551 to 565

We hypothesised that joint working practice, defined as a set of practices among project partners that involved combined efforts of the parties in managing the project task mediate the relationships between the four attributes of relationship quality (trust, teamwork, commitment and performance satisfaction) in improving time performance of construction projects. Using purposive non-probability sampling technique, 245 quantitative sample data was collected and analysed. The study focused on key informants such as directors and managers within the several organisations involved in capital projects development in Nigeria. The data was analysed and hypothesises were tested using partial least squares structural equation modelling. The results suggest a direct influence of trust, teamwork and performance satisfaction on joint working practice as well as significant influence of joint working practice on time performance. The study further confirms the indirect influence of trust among project parties; teamwork capability and performance satisfaction on time performance and additionally summits that without joint working practice, project teams often face difficulty in achieving time certainty. On the other hand, a party’s commitment to project objectives did not influence joint working practice among project partners neither indirectly (through joint working practice) significant to time performance. The study finally showed that three (3) of the attributes of RQ (trust, teamwork and PS) explained 21% variation in the project time performance while the remaining 79% is explained by the variables or other aspects outside the model. This indicates the importance of these variables on construction performance in Nigeria. Pages 566 to 586

The Effectiveness of Electoral System: A Case Study on Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono’s Presidential System

Gunawan Suswantoroa, aBadan Pengawas Pemilihan Umum Republik Indonesia (Bawaslu RI), Email: agunawan@bawaslu.go.id

Even though four elections have been held since the reformation took place in Indonesia, the effective presidential-multiparty system has not been achieved yet. The ineffectiveness in question is when the process for obtaining approval is carried out over a long period of time which then shifts the main issue, and ultimately prejudice the people. Overall, this study discusses the party system, representative system, and presidential system, as well as the implications of the electoral system on the effectiveness of governance. The approach used in this study is a qualitative approach, with analytical descriptive methods. The results of the author's analysis show that the disproportionality of 2004 and 2009 electoral systems influenced the ineffectiveness of the SBY government. In addition, this ineffectiveness is also strengthened by the results of the Rice Index calculation in several policy-making processes that show that political parties coalition supporting the government is not disciplined. Based on these findings, the author recommends the changes in the electoral system from open proportional systems to parallel systems. The electoral system engineering is intended to create incentives that produce effective coalition models in government. In addition, the recommended electoral system is expected to reduce the potential for institutional conflict between the President and the DPR. Pages 587 to 601

Haider Hussein Kateaa, Mutar Sabeeh Naserb, Ahmed Kadhum Fahadc, a,cDepartment of English, College of Education, University of Thi-Qar, Iraq, bContinuing Education Center, University of Thi-Qar, Iraq,

This research sheds light on the study of the language in interactions, namely conversations and how conversations work in political interviews especially in questions and answers. It will focus on the interactional practice of asking questions in Arabic political interviews. The study seeks to find out the kind of actions associated with the practice of questioning and answering in this setting, and what it tells us about the institutional responsibilities of its participants. Such transcripts which are widely available online can be utilised as an authentic language material for political discourse studies. Results showed that there are unique functions and forms to the question and answering turns in this institutional setting of talk, political interview. These functions are affected by the institutional mandate of the interviewer and the interviewees.  Such differences may be the result of the specific institutional responsibilities that are framing the conversation and how it contributes in clarifying the public opinion with confrontational questions, considering the interviewee position as the top government figure in the country, the Prime Minister.  Question/answer sequencing has been identified as a matter of concern in political interviews. According to the researchers’ knowledge and the literature reviewed, no systematic study has been undertaken in the context of an Arabic (Iraqi in particular) TV show discourse, with political concerns. Approaches on talk-in-interaction, institutional talk and its effect on conversation will be applied. A literature review for these approaches is described with a focus on the question/answer turns. The data to be investigated consists of a single episode of Al Arabiyah “Frankly” show transcripts. Pages 613 to 626

This study aims to shape the character of students through the internalisation of law awareness. This arises from the problem of the degradation of citizens’ characters, including students who violate many rules (of law) both in the school environment and society in general. The process of forming the students’ characters can be carried out through learning in the classroom, environment and supporting programs that provide law education so that the internalisation of law awareness in students will also strengthen  their characters as  good citizens. The research approach used is a case study with a qualitative research method. The results of this show that the internalisation of law awareness to strengthen students’ characters can be carried out in three ways, namely: (1) the internalisation of law awareness through effective civic education learning which is meaningful and participatory learning, (2) the habituation of the implementation of rules (of law) at schools, and (3) a supporting program, namely through special forums that provide law education in the form of the Forum Pelajar Sadar Hukum (FPSH) or the Law Awareness Student Forum which instills law awareness so as to create an obedient attitude to the norms, regulations that apply at schools and community environment.

Mohamed Al-Mahdi Mohamed Abdul-Rahmana, aCurriculum and Instruction Department, College of Education Prince Sattam bin Abdulaziz University, Saudi Arabia, Email: am.abdulrahman@psau.edu.sa

The current study aims at identifying the effectiveness of learner control and program control strategies in developing slow learners’ mathematical thinking in mathematics. The sample of the study consisted of a group of slow learners (120) in mathematics at Alkharj intermediate schools. The 120 students were equally divided into three groups: 40 students for the first experimental group (learner control), 40 students for the second experimental group (program control), and 40 students for the control group. The study revealed that there are statistically significant differences between the mean scores of the first experimental group (learner control) and the control one in the mathematical thinking test favouring the first experimental group. It also revealed that there are statistically significant differences between the mean scores of the second experimental group (program control) and the control one in the mathematical thinking test favouring the second experimental group. Furthermore, the study results showed that there are no statistically significant differences between the mean scores of the first experimental group (learner control) and the second experimental group (program control) in the mathematical thinking test. Due to the study results, it is recommended that using computers should be integrated in designing slow learners’ mathematics curriculums. The study also recommends that mathematic teachers should design and use computer programs in teaching slow learners. Finally, the study recommends preparing teachers to deal with slow learners using computer programs, taking into consideration the role of the teacher as the core of the learning process and not relying only on computers in the learning process.

The goal of this study is to find out and provide empirical evidence of the influence of task complexity, independence, and competence on the quality of audit results with auditor integrity as a moderating variable. This study was conducted on the Auditors at the Inspectorate Office of North Sumatra's Musirawas Regency, with 180 personnel samples. The method of determining the sample used in this study was non probability sampling with a saturated sampling technique. The technique used to analyse data was Structure Equation Modeling (SEM ) with AMOS software application. Based on the analysis results, it can be shown that  the sub-structure of auditor integrity is influenced by the complexity of the task, independence and competence, but only competencies that have a positive and significant effect and in the main structural equation, the quality of audit results is affected by task complexity, independence, competence and integrity, but only the variables of independence and integrity have a positive effect. From the two equations, the integrity variable is able to moderate the auditor's competency variable on audit quality, so it is suggested that to realise a government that is clean of auditor competence is to be a benchmark for the success of auditing, in order to support the integrity of audit results.

Patria Bayu Murdia*, Supantob, Widodo Tresno Noviantoc, a,b,cFaculty of Law, Universitas Sebelas Maret, Surakarta, Indonesia, Email: a*bayumurdi72@gmail.com

This study aims to analyse the application of the doctrine of res ipsa loquitur (negligence) in solving medical malpractice cases. Based on the results of research and discussion about the problem being studied, it can be concluded that the benefits of implementing the ipsa loquitur doctrine are as follows: -support the victim in cases where it is difficult for the victim to access evidence containing material, -it is not convoluted and -prove beyond denial the truth that there has been an element of error (negligence) committed by the defendant. The recommendation is that, in view of the doctrine of res ipsa loquitur facilitating a system of proving the existence of errors, especially cases that are not easily accessible to victims of medical malpractice, the res ipsa loquitur doctrine should be used as a proof system in court trials.

Issues and Challenges of Local Government in Industry Standardisation in Indonesia

AL Sentot Sudarwantoa, aFaculty of Law, Universitas Sebelas Maret, Surakarta, Indonesia, Email: aalsentotsudarwanto@yahoo.com

For a developing country like Indonesia, regulation on standardisation in national industry policies is of vital importance. In addition to improving competitiveness, the implementation of standards determines a country’s market access. The policy on the implementation of standards in Indonesia’s industrial sectors which has been around for 17 years has not yet significantly resulted in business competitiveness, either domestic or international. Indonesia’s Standardisation Law emphasizes that it is not only central government but also local government that play a role in and are responsible for improving the implementation of standards in the industry sector. However, the presence of constraints that are encountered by local government is a reason why the implementation of standards in Indonesia is still low. In relation to this fact, constructing policies on local industry standardisation presents as both strategic issue and as a challenge for local government. In addition to serving as an attempt to improve national industry competitiveness, such policies can be offensive strategies to set the platform for leading local products to have greater competitiveness. Moreover, the policies present as defensive strategies to protect consumers and local business actors from the invasion of other countries’ nonstandard products. In order to construct local industrial policies, three pillars are required: (1) the improvement of effectiveness of local government’s roles, (2) the improvement of business actors’ adherence, and (3) the improvement of cross-sector coordination. The three pillars will present as a foundation of strengthening standards implementation for leading local products. Pages 775 to 788

The Implementation of Good Corporate Governance in Corporation Management Relating to Harmonisation of Shareholder and Stakeholder Interests

Yudho Taruno Muryantoa, aFaculty of Law, Universitas Sebelas Maret, Surakarta, Indonesia, Email: ayudhotaruno@staff.uns.ac.id

The implementation of Good Corporate Governance is required for every business entity, corresponding to both the stakeholder and the shareholder. The reason for this is the fact that many companies depend on external capital. The corporation needs to ensure their debtors that the funds are used properly and efficiently, and for management to perform the best for the corporation. This is made certain by implementing by good corporate governance. A good Corporate Governance system gives effective protection to the invested interests. Good Corporate Governance in Indonesia in the framework of national law has not been fully implemented yet, because Good Corporate Governance is a non-imperative concept, and the it is not an obligation to implement. Harmonisation of shareholder and stakeholder interests in the implementation of Good Corporate Governance can be done by first accommodating and attending to the interests of shareholders. This is done by giving them access to corporation information relating to its fairness in performance as this is part of what the shareholders or investors consider before they invest their capital and to protect the position of the shareholder from manipulative corporations and/or companies that are disobeying the governing authority. Then the interests of stakeholders can be ensured by stable corporation performance and the harmonisation of the corporation management system resulting in effective and efficient management, and emphasis on the public accessibility to information about a corporation’s fairness in performance either from economic or non-economic aspects.

Model for the Contempt of Court Criminal Policy in Realising Indonesian Judicial Independence

Bambang Ali Kusumoa, Abdul Kadir Jaelanib, a,bFaculty of Law, Universitas Slamet Riyadi, Surakarta, Indonesia, Email: a*alikusumobambang@yahoo.co.id

This research is motivated by a number of weaknesses in the formulation of the policy regarding the Contempt of Court criminal act which causes the independence and transparency of judicial power to be doubted. Whereas the philosophy of the Independence of Judicial Power views this as a state power that is free from all forms of intervention both from within and from outside the judiciary, except on the basis of the ideology of Pancasila and of the 1945 Constitution. The results show that historically and to date, forms of intervention on the functioning of judicial authority in Indonesia, both before and after the enactment of the one-stop justice system under the Supreme Court still exist, even with all the dynamics and changes. Before the enactment of the one-stop justice system, the power to intervene on the institution of judicial power came more from the power of executive institutions, so that the flow of reforms leading to the one-stop justice system under the Supreme Court was stronger. After the enactment of the one-stop justice system, forms of intervention on the one-stop justice system are mostly carried out by public forces, in the form of interventions by mass mobilization, interventions of mass pressure, interventions oby other figures and interventions of other regions.Pages 798 to 808

Structural Function and Symbolic Relationship found in the Local Wisdom of the Katu Tribe, Lao PDR

This article is part of a research work on ‘The Craft Of the Katu Tribe: Symbolic Shapes For The Design Of Contemporary Product’. The aim is to delve into patterns of the local wisdom used in crafts made by the Katu Tribe in Lao PDR. Qualitative research methodology was employed using several research instruments: field survey, observation, and interviews with stakeholders involved in craft making of Katu Tribe. After data collection, the data was analysed using Talcott Parsons (Talcott Parsons, 1949-1951) and Victor Turner (Victor Turner,1969) theories. Research results reveal that Katu tribe’s crafts are currently created mostly for daily use. They are made out of beliefs and faith. Production processes and certain patterns found in the crafts have been systematically and structurally passed down from one generation to following generations. Accumulated experiences evolve into specialised skills, which are later developed, improved, and changed until certain forms and production techniques are conceived—rendering products that are unified in their use, beauty, and beliefs. Nevertheless, characteristics of each product may differ based on certain roles the craft makers are holding in the time the crafts are invented. The roles of the craft makers during the production process are systematically placed within the social system which relates to the social structure within the tribe. The production process is an invented detailed procedure which is applied systematically during the time the product is produced. The production process is undertaken according to a clear intention of the craft makers and function of the craft itself. These detailed procedures are considered ‘function’ or ‘action’—which is the essence that begets a developed system that later evolved into a social structure within the tribe. This is gradually formed through tribal craftsmanship, which is a phenomenon that is consistent with Talcott Parson's theory on structure and function and Victor Turner’s theory on symbolic relationship. This phenomenon which takes place within the tribe can be explained by focusing one’s aim on the factors affecting decision making within the social context in the community. Another important variable also instils inspiration within the community as well as brings about procedure, which later forms into a social system and characteristics of symbolic relationship of the social process that has been changed over the course of time as a way to find its best fit. All of the above points relate to the existence of the patterns of the local wisdom in producing and creating handicrafts of the Katu Tribe located in Lao PDR. Pages 835 to 851

Using contingent valuation survey data for about 330 households in arsenic affected areas of the Red River Delta, Vietnam, this research estimates the value of arsenic-free water to the rural households. A particular focus is on households’ willingness to pay (WTP) for piped water supply which can provide a sustainable solution to the arsenic problem in rural areas of Vietnam. The estimates suggest that households are willing to pay on average VND 160,430 per month for arsenic-free water i.e. tap water. It is about 3.5% of the average monthly household income. In line with economic theory and empirical results, willingness to pay is sensitive to household income, household size, gender, and age of respondents. This research highlights the importance of a consumer demand approach in water supply planning and is expected to help policy-makers and business firms to adopt more efficient strategies for ensuring safe water for the people in arsenic contaminated areas of emerging countries like Vietnam.

Patterns of Social Justice based Conflict Resolution in Land Procurement: A Case Study in Yogyakarta International Airport Development

Siti Zuliyaha, Absorib, Harunc, Sudjitod, a,b,c,dUniversitas Muhammadiyah Surakarta, Central Java, Indonesia,

The inhibition of the construction of the International Airport in the Special Region of Yogyakarta is caused by the rejection of the affected community because some of the land that is the construction site belongs to the community and the other part belongs to the PAG (Paku Alam Ground). It is because of the status of this land that causes the community to take the fight in addition to the compensation factor being unclear, lack of certainty of relocation and employment problems. If the conflict does not receive serious attention and does not look for a solution that can be accepted by all parties to the dispute, it is feared that it will accumulate in the form of violence. This study intends to formulate a pattern of conflict resolution based on social justice in land acquisition for the construction of an International Airport in the Special Region of Yogyakarta. This research is an empirical study, using a sociological juridical approach. The data analysis uses descriptive qualitative methods. The pattern of conflict resolution is based on social justice. A resolution of conflicts outside the court in the form of deliberation and mediation, with due regard to the same rights in politics, economics and social, among others is by the right to express an opinion, the right to get compensation and the right to get a job, and so produces a fair decision in the sense that no party feels disadvantaged and it can be accepted by the parties to the dispute, so that the principle of social justice can be created.

Voluntary Partnership in Palm Oil Trade: A Sustainable Approach for Malaysia

Hanim Kamaruddina, aSenior Lecturer, Faculty of Law, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia, Bangi UKM, Malaysia, Email: ahanim@ukm.edu.my

The EU Renewable Energy Directive supplementing Directive 2018/2001 of Renewable Energy Directive II (EU RED II) was enforced by the European Parliament to restrict and ban palm oil biofuel by 2030.  Malaysia found the EU RED II as discriminatory towards palm oil as the directive classifies the commodity as ‘unsustainable’ by causing deforestation and climate change. The EU RED II is further perceived as harmful to the socio-economic well-being of palm oil planters and alleged to have disregarded implementation of sustainable palm oil agricultural sustainable practices and strategies in conformity with Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 2030 in Malaysia. This paper found that environmentally sustainable practices in Malaysia’s palm oil sector are actively promoted which can only boost trade relations through a voluntary partnership scheme as an approach to resolve the EU’s position on palm oil biofuel. The approach taken in Indonesia’s timber production dispute with the EU is recommended. Pages 1044 to 1056

Bank Credit Risk Management on Professional and Individual Portfolios

Faez Hlail Srayyiha, Ameerah Abd Mashaanb, Manaf Abdalmutalib Ahmedc, a,b,cUniversity of Anbar, College of Administration and Economics, Iraq.

The banking institutions have priority to anticipate the risks related to credits. This analysis helps to identify potential risks before they occur. As we have seen, there are many techniques to quantify and assess the risks of each portfolio. The bank is gaining both time and money in spreading risk among its customers. Indeed, as soon as a risk appears, it must be quickly managed, which mobilises human but also financial resources. When the customer's situation deteriorates, the bank is never completely sure of recovering the full amount of its investment. It is this constant uncertainty that scares banks. Anticipation by upstream risk analysis makes it possible to bridge part of this uncertain future and secure the credit activity. Pages 1115 to 1137

E-mail: 1*saridhifa@gmail.com

To overcome fluctuations in strategic agri-food production and prices, it requires comprehensive, integrated and sustainable policies. The research aims to develop an upstream and downstream intervention model of agri-food within an innovation system framework, using the System Dynamics approach. The intervention produced several behavioural changes on level farmers; (1) Breeding bulb seeds participation and Good Agricultural Practices reduces plants’ growing risk to 43%; yield processing, increasing market access, renewing the MoU, reduce market risk to 83%; (2) The use of True Shallot Seed (TSS) reduces production costs by 19.4% while increasing productivity significantly; (3) Cropping patterns Minimize the production fluctuations. The behaviour of cash and profit in all three scenarios increased steadily. The behaviour of price formation on a structured market showed a stable pattern in the Government's reference price. Innovation systems integrating upstream and downstream sectors will create business efficiency while ensuring sustainability. Upstream innovation systems unmatched with downstream will not survive due to unreachable economic incentives. Pages 1138 to 1161

With the recognition of the limitation of low numbers of related papers focused on literature review in public sector accounting in the world as well as in Vietnam in the academic works, this research sets an aim to identify and analyse the emerging literature on performance measurement (PM) in the public sector (PS) and shed a light for other research in the future. The systematic literature review (SLR) methodology proposed by Denyer and Tranfield (2009) was applied with a total of 80 papers published in 38 scientific journals that were systematically reviewed for evaluating and to establish the current trends. Apart from indicating an increasing demand on a better understanding of PM in PS in spite of regionally heterogeneous vision and mission for improving performance, the results also reveal gaps stemming from the choice of number as well as type of keywords and journals through 7 categories in those trends of research. Taking these results into account, the academics can keep on exploring this type of subject area on their own accord, while the practitioners and policy makers can employ the research in their empirical work.

The prevalence of obesity in the world has been continuously increasing over the past decades. One factor that contributes to the rise in the number of obese individuals is the school environment. This paper determined the prevalence of obesity among the college students of one Higher Education Institution in the Northern Philippines and evaluated the university's anti-obesity program to strategise interventions and prevention of obesity among its students. This study made use of the quantitative descriptive-evaluative design and documentary analysis of the medical records of the students. The World Health Organization Body Mass Index standard was used to categorize weight and obesity. As triangulation techniques, inspection and observation of the food outlets both inside and outside the campus were conducted. To find out about the university health program, an unstructured interview with the health services in charge was done. The prevalence of obesity among the students of the University is higher (33%) than the Philippine prevalence of 31.1%. The lack of specific anti-obesity interventions or activities of the university health program is found to be an urgent concern to be addressed by the university. This study concluded that the prevalence of obesity among the university students is high due to the following: lack of specific anti-obesity health programs, an abundance of food outlets serving high-calorie and high-fat foods, and lack of national law about food choices to be served to students in the tertiary level in the Philippines.
