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

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.

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

China is a contemporary world power. Economic and technological progress as well as the global political defence system that was played increasingly emphasised the position of China as a big country ready to become a Western countries’ competitor. The spirit of confusion is an important foundation in the work ethic of Chinese society. Also, the entry and development of Islam in China has begun since the beginning of the first century Hijrah. This study aims to get an in-depth overview of the strategic communication patterns of Islam and Chinese culture so that Islam survives to the present in China and has a space of symbolic expression and acculturation with Chinese culture. The method used in this research is qualitative. The results showed that the interaction between Islam and China had been done for a long time. It was proven during the reign of the Ming Dynasty that assimilation occurred through trade, marriage, and government. The Ming Dynasty emperor also had a Muslim wife. Not only that, poems written in Mandarin also show that China glorifies the truth of God and the Prophet Muhammad as a prophet of the Muslims. Pages 408 to 423

The ‘Pesantren’ in the Future and the Enlightenment of Modern Thought: A Theological Reconstruction Perspective

Fadlil Munawwar Manshura, aUniversitas Gadjah Mada (UGM) Yogyakarta, Indonesia, Email: afadlil@ugm.ac.id

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.

Ansara*, Muradb, Sukmawatyc, Ridwan Khalild, a,b,c,dDepartment of Agricultural Engineering, Faculty of Food Technology and Agroindustries, University of Mataram, Indonesia, Email: a*ansar72@unram.ac.id

The use of agricultural mechanisation tools has developed rapidly at this time, but for narrow land it is not suitable to use these tools. Narrow agricultural land is more effective if processed using hoes. The purpose of this study was to compare ergonomic and traditional hoes to know comfortability of farmers when hoeing soil. The research parameters are hoe design, energy consumption, and work capacity. This study used an experimental method to test the use of hoes carried out in agricultural fields. The results showed that the energy consumption of ergonomic hoes was lower than conventional hoe use. In terms of safety and comfort, both ergonomic hoes and conventional hoes are classified as heavy work and cause complaints to workers. The work capacity of farmers using ergonomic hoes increased to 51.9% compared with the hoe P1 which only increased 32.4%. P2 and P3 increased by 26.3%.  Pages 508 to 519

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.

Isnaini Rodiyaha, Totok Wahyu Abadib, Rakhma Syeilac, Ilmi Usrotin Choiriyahd, Lailul Mursyidahe, a,c,d,ePublic Administration Department, bCommunication Department, Universitas Muhammadiyah, Jalan Majapahit 666 B Sidoarjo, East Java, Indonesia, Email: aisnaini@umsida.ac.id,  btotokwahyu@umsida.ac.id,  crakhmasyeila5101997@gmail.com,  dilmiusrotin@umsida.ac.id,  elailulmursyidah@umsida.ac.id

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.

Implementation of Stephen Krashen's Theory in Foreign Language Acquisition

The determinants of language mastery vary significantly between individuals. The person’s language acquisition determines the skills of lingual production. There are often contradictions between language acquisition and learning. According to psycholinguists, acquisition is possible in the first language only. This contradicts Stephen Krashen assertion that acquisition can be obtained for foreign languages. This study examined the implementation of foreign language acquisition at STIBA Ar-Raayah, Sukabumi, based on Stephen Krashen’s theory. It uses a qualitative approach with a case study research design. The data collection includes observation, interviews, and documentation, while analysis techniques relied on data triangulation. The results showed that second language acquisition is influenced by proper input and processes such as native speakers, language environment and a good monitoring process. These aspects agree with Stephen Krashen's theory which gives maximum output in Arabic acquisition. Pages 546 to 556

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

This research aims to examine the role of hedonic value and customer satisfaction in mediating the effect of perceived price and service convenience on repurchase intentions at Koi Farms in Blitar District. The development of a research model is based on price perception and service convenience on repurchase intention, also indirectly through hedonic value and customer satisfaction. The population are customers who buy koi ornamental fish in the Minapolitan Region of Blitar District. A total of 90 samples were selected by judgmental sampling technique. The model is analysed by structural model through Partial Least Square (PLS) and facilitated by SmartPLS software application. The research found that price perception and service convenience directly cannot increase customer repurchase intentions. 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.

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.

Miswanto Miswantoa, Yanuar Rifqi Abdullahb, a,bYKPN School of Business (STIE YKPN) Yogyakarta, Indonesia, Email: a*miswanto.ykpn@gmail.com

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

Iman Prihandonoa*, Dewi Santoso Yuniartib, aAssociate Professor in Public International Law at the Faculty of Law, Airlangga University, Indonesia, bResearch fellow at Airlangga Institute for International Law Studies, she obtained Bachelor of Law at the Faculty of Law, Airlangga University, Indonesia, Email: a*iprihandono@fh.unair.ac.id

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

An Ganga, Tengku Sepora Tengku Mahadib, a,bSchool of Languages, Literacies & Translation, Universiti Sains Malaysia,11800 Minden, Pulau Pinang, Malaysia, Email: aangangusm@gmail.com,  btsepora@usm.my

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 strategies mostly focus on the target text, which is designed to break target conventions, and at the same time, it retains some of the foreign flavours. This paper aims to explore the relationship, and implications of foreignization, and domestication in translation. The paper outlines brief concepts of domestication, and foreignization, and their related issues. It further concludes that when translation culture is dominated by domestication, cultural peculiarity will be reduced significantly. On the other hand, the mechanical translation will enhance if it is travelling towards the direction of foreignization. It is further noted that legitimate obligations are not required for foreignization or domestication while translating, as long as the practicality of translation is present. 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

Sunartaa, Rusijonob, Karwantoc, Sugi Hartonod*, a,b,cManagement Education Department, Universitas Negeri Surabaya, Surabaya, Indonesia, dMathematics Education Department, Universitas Negeri Surabaya, Surabaya, Indonesia, Email: d*sugihartonounesa@gmail.com

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
