In our research, we tried to find a quantitative answer to the question about the role of society and family in the individual development. As part of the review, the prevailing views on this matter have been singled out. The question was also narrowed down to the relationship of family policy and child development using the methodology of grounded theory. We have formulated the hypothesis that state and society intervention into intrafamily relations can be monitored by the percentage of children's time spent in the family and outside the family, as well as by the government incentives offered to families with children. Based on the literature review, it was hypothesized that society would not benefit from large-scale public intervention into the affairs of families with young children. The hypothesis was later confirmed however, it remains implicit. At the same time, the effect becomes more obvious in the historical perspective. The analysis of the family policies of developed countries at the end of the last century showed that the scale of public intervention into family affairs was smaller and the effect was positive. The scale is increasing now and the positive effect of public intervention into intrafamily relationships is being lost. Pages 1 to 17

According to modern views on education systems management, an effectiveness of the latter is inconceivable without constant monitoring (based on specific criteria) of scientific and educational activities.  This study is based on an analysis of international practice of evaluating university's activities. The study presents the basic approaches and principles of unifying the monitoring indicators of a university’s scientific and educational activities with international (European) standards. Based on the principles of a systematic approach, the authors propose criteria for evaluating a university's scientific and educational activity in three areas: provision, efficiency, and effectiveness of a higher educational institution. Indicators of these areas can become the core of creating effective and consistent (with the requirements of world standards) tools for measuring the quality of both scientific and educational university's activities.

This study is about the controversy surrounding the determination of the direction of Qibla in Indonesia, which so far, uses two methods. Firstly it uses the classic method based on the sunset and  shadow of the sun across the Kaaba. Both   Science methods are based on calculations that are equipped with astronomical formulas and data. Whereas in Fiqh studies the determination of Qibla direction generally only uses calculations without accurate data. Such differences create cross-opinions - even  prolonged controversy in practically  the entire Muslim world, especially  Indonesia. Researchers will uncover the phenomenon by in-depth discussion of  the direction of Qibla., as a form of criticism of the second Scientific method . This study attempts to measure the extent of accuracy in determining the direction of Qur’an in Indonesia by using both methods. Pages 205 to 217

Ethical leadership is a type of value-based leadership that greatly aids in balancing the principal’s role as a manager and leader in schools. Studies have shown the impact of practicing ethical leadership towards building trust, positive workplace behaviour, increasing innovative workplace mindset and organisational performance. The emerging leadership style has found strong roots in the international platforms but not in  Malaysian local school leadership . 3 secondary school principals were selected for this study based on the ethical leadership level as perceived by their teachers from a previous study by the researcher., which  shows that principals have high to moderately high level of ethical leadership practice in schools. This case study caters the findings on the understanding and practises of ethical leadership style among the principals as perceived by the principals themselves. The study also explores the seven dimensions of ethical leadership as being practised amongst  principals. A semi-structured interview was conducted to collect relevant data. The interview is transcribed and analysed thematically . The principals  revealed that they lacked an understanding of ethical leadership style but practised several dimensions of ethical leadership in their daily school administration tasks. The findings suggest that ethical leadership has ample room to be integrated into current school leadership practises and develop an understanding of  its impact on improving teacher work performance.

Sustainability in Islamic Derivatives for Economic Development Vs.  Conventional Derivatives

Chaibou Issoufoua, Sheikh Muhamad Hizam Hj Sheikh Khairuddinb, Abdul Razak Abdul Hadic, aSenior lecturer @ Department of Economics and Law, University Kuala  Lumpur, Business School, bDeputy Dean Academic & Technology, Universiti Kuala Lumpur, Business School, cDeputy Dean International, Industrial & Institutional Partnership (IIIP), Universiti Kuala Lumpur, Business School, Email: aissoufou@unikl.edu.my,  bsheikhmhizam@unikl.edu.my,  cabdrazak@unikl.edu.my

Islamic financial instruments are sustainable because they are required   until the contract is concluded,  in contrast to conventional financial instruments which do not require the existence of the underlying asset .  This paper aims to analyse  Islamic derivatives such as bay al-salam, bay al-Istisna’ and arbun as alternatives to conventional derivatives. The other focus of the paper is the examination of  some conventional derivative contracts such as options for the  futures as well  the extent to which they are legally permitted in Islamic law. Furthermore, there is a discussion on the views of  Muslim jurists on fictitious contracts, and  the extent to which  the expression and intention of contracting parties affect the contract. The study adopts a qualitative research methodology in which classical and modern jurists’ views are analysed to discover Islamic and conventional derivatives contracts. This paper shows  that conventional derivatives do not confirm  with the principles of Islamic law. Therefore, Islamic derivatives can be an alternative to conventional forms for the sustainability of economic development. Pages 404 to 416

Background: The present paper undertakes an approach of robust design including the model of Kano to  obtain the best composition of design form factors. This can improve the contentment of customers effectively and standards of the aesthetic products with various norm features. Materials and Methods: The researcher uses the model of Kano to comprehend the relation between performance norm and the contentment of customers, and to settle a difficulty of trade-off in various norms optimisation by verifying the most important norm in the contentment of customers. Results: This study explains the excitement needs and creates solutions for the excitement that needs transformation into basic needs over time. On the other hand, we will prove how these extra services will affect the increase in the popularity of the hotel and by result its occupancy rates. Conclusion: Comparing the hypothetical results with the actual ones, we find that neither room complimentary coffee & tea nor priority clubs or heated swimming pools  act as exciters. Hospitality is connected to customer satisfaction because this business produces and delivers customer satisfaction. Now, customer supplies can be both tangible and intangible, but filling all of them and hence meeting their requirements is called customer satisfaction.  Pages 417 to 438

Relevance of Local Wisdom in Rural Judiciary for Indonesian Societies

Indah Sri Utaria*, Rodiyahb, Diandra Preludio Ramadac, Syukron Salamd, a,b,c,dfaculty of Law Universitas Negeri Semarang, Email: a*indahsuji@gmail.com

This study is directed towards finding answers about the social basis of the community regarding local wisdom in Court, and the socio-juridical relevance of the judiciary in bridging the gap between the people and the aspirations that are so plural towards the legal logic that is  centralised and technical. This problem arises when the problems faced by society today in the field of justice, especially in the civil field are: "how to obtain legal certainty without sacrificing justice and guarantees of harmony, and how to obtain justice and guarantees of harmony supported by legal certainty." The approach used is a qualitative research method with a type of sociological research juridical. The results showed that  the court community is a place to seek justice. So that the court aims at resolving disputes in society fairly, the judicial mechanism must not only rely on procedural aspects but also how to make people feel accommodated in the judicial procedure. For this reason, a compatible court mechanism needs  a form of justice that can accommodate proportionally and equitably the formal and informal aspects with a new vision that respects the value system and the needs of the community. This scholarship concludes that in solving problems in rural communities, it is necessary to obtain formal certainty through negotiating and familial processes. Pages 502 to 515

Suhadia*, Yusriyadib, FX. Adji Samektoc, aUniversitas Negeri Semarang, b,cUniversitas Diponegoro, Email: a*suhadi@mail.unnes.ac.id

The state exercises control over the branches of production, which are essential for the state and which control the lives of many people according to the Indonesian constitution.  One of the most critical chapters of output for the country and which controls the livelihoods of many people is electricity. In the context of electricity supply, some power plants are built, operated, or owned by private business entities. What is the meaning of state control over the amount of electricity in the legislation in Indonesia? Why are private business entities involved in the supply of electricity in Indonesia? What is the impact of involving these private business entities in the availability of power in Indonesia? By using a socio-legal approach, the research stated that control over the supply of electricity has the meaning of the state making policies, taking care of, regulating, managing, and supervising for the maximum prosperity of the people. State control over the supply of electricity is not only meant by the state building, operating and owning it, but the state can provide it by cooperating with private business entities. The state collaborates with private businesses to produce electricity as an effort to realise people's welfare. Private business entities are involved in the business of supplying electricity, on the one hand, to provide power in sufficient quantities, reasonably and of sufficient quality, on the other to increase investment and the country's economy. Public-private partnership agreements are the basis for involving private business entities in the supply of electricity. The impact of it on the meaning of the context of electricity supply is the increasing number of private business entities involved in the supply of electricity, meaning the more amount of power.

Social change in rural communities can occur due to innovation and utilisation of new technology. The village web is an innovation and new technology that has a strategic role to facilitate the community in receiving and utilising various information related to community empowerment. The purpose of the study is to assess how the villagers can access the information from the village web despite their lack of ability to use new technology. The study used a qualitative method through participatory action research (PAR) techniques. The phase in the PAR approach as described by Coghland and Brannick (2001)  includes diagnosing, planning action, taking action and evaluating action. The informants in this study were village officials and community leaders who knew of the existence of the village web that was used as a new media tool to disseminate information to the community. The results show that the inclusive communication approach fits the technology assessment with the condition of the Susukan Village community, Banyumas, Central Java by making use of intermediary media so that the new technology can be used according to their abilities in the diagnosing phase. The form of technology assessment that is in accordance with the demand of Susukan residents is to provide information boards as an intermediary media platform to access information from the village web in the planning phase. The mechanism of the inclusive communication approach through technology assessment is by installing information boards in each resident’s group in the action phase. More residents have started being empowered after reading information from the village web in their daily routines, using technology assessment as an inclusive communication approach in the evaluation phase.

Throughout 2015 and 2016, countries in Southeast Asia were confronted by acts of terrorism. This act of terrorism was spearheaded by the ISIS militant group and other radicals, which used terror in Southeast Asian countries like Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, and the Philippines. The group recruits citizens from various countries to join them. This has led to complaints from multiple countries, including the United States, who, in an effort to tackle terrorism, intervened in Southeast Asian countries by such measures as the Indonesian Anti-Terrorism Law. However, interfering with other countries is not in accordance with international law. This paper examines US Intervention in Southeast Asia against terrorism in terms of international law and  from perspective of human rights. Pages 592 to 610

Discourses of the Anti-Indonesian Communist Party and Its Reproduction in High School Textbooks during the New Order (1967-1998)

Hieronymus Purwantaa, Victor Noviantob, aDepartment of History Education, Sebelas Maret University, bSocial Studies Education, Postgraduate School of University of PGRI Yogyakarta, Email: ahpurwanta@staff.uns.ac.id,  bvictornovianto@gmail.com

This research aims to study the discourse of the anti-Indonesian Communist Party (ICP) and its reproduction in high school history textbooks. The questions posed are: (1) How did the army historiographies describe itself and the ICP as its competitor? (2) How did the anti-ICP discourses spread through high school history textbooks? To answer these research questions, this study employs a binary opposition approach developed by Derrida. The results suggest that the army represented itself as the victim and became the target of ICP’s cruelty. On the contrary, the ICP was stigmatized as the mastermind of G30S’s coup d’état, demonized as a cruel party, and also indulged in free sex. The army discourses spread into high school textbooks during the New Order regime (1967-1998). This resulted in many Indonesians believing that the ICP was the mastermind behind G30S as any narrative was accused to be a political movement to revive the ICP. Pages 611 to 626

The Sociology of Refugee Migration in the Arab World

Hussein Salem Al-Srehana, aAl AIN University, Abu Dhabi, UAE, Email: ahussein.alsrehan@aau.ac.ae

The migration issue is one of the most important in the modern world. A survey was conducted in the form of a semi-structured interview among 150 migrants from the Middle East and North Africa to find out the causes of migration, as well as the difficulties faced by the migrating population. The age of the respondents ranged from 25 to 58 years. This age group of respondents was chosen since, unlike the younger generation, they are more likely to feel all the difficulties that arise during migration. In the second part of the study, a statistical analysis of migration to the Gulf countries was carried out. For this part of the study, an analysis of census data for the period 2005–15 was undertaken. According to the results of the interview, the most common reasons for migration are the economic situation in the country or the hostilities taking place in it. The problems that migrants mainly face are also most often of an economic nature. They also face hostility from host societies. The state might support migrants by increasing social benefits and the organisation of special courses that will increase the chances of finding a job. The study found that countries such as Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Jordan, Kuwait, Oman and Qatar are characterised by the largest flow of migrants. A major problems during migration to the Gulf countries is the large number of illegal migrants, as well as a biased attitude towards them from the indigenous people. Pages 649 to 660

Alih Aji Nugrohoa*, Neneng Sri Rahayub, a,bSchool of Administration-NIPA, Jakarta, Indonesia, Email: a*alihnugroho@stialan.ac.id

The administration of government and IT-based public services are the main requirements to keep abreast of the times. The maximum application of IT in government is commonly called E-Government. Changing conventional patterns to digital, according to Effendi (2018), not only requires hardware but also requires transformation of organisational values and culture. This paper is the result of research analysing changes in organisational values and culture from conventional work to digital. The research was conducted at the Regional Development Planning Agency (RDPA), Special Region of Yogyakarta (SRY), because it has implemented E-Gov so well that it received several awards. The method used is descriptive qualitative, data collection is  carried out by in-depth interviews plus literature review studies. As a result, the transformation of values and culture from manual to e-gov in RDPA SRY uses several strategies. The first time it was done was through an initial discipline to raise awareness of stakeholders both internal and external. That is, the application of the innovation initially made coercion as the first step in changing the old organisational culture to become more innovative. Coercion is  carried out formally (above black and white), or informally (moral sanctions). In addition, the application of innovation in RPA SRY cannot be separated from transformative leadership that can foster an innovative culture and customer-oriented (community) needs.

The Relationship between Muslims and Christians in Indonesia: Conflict and Tolerance

Kasnoa, aSunan Ampel State Islamic University Surabaya, Indonesia, Email: akasno.sudaryanto@yahoo.com

The Muslim-Christian conflict in Indonesia has become a critical issue that should be addressed by the Indonesian government. The conflict reached its climax and was triggered by the establishment of the House of Worship (Church) in the city of Gresik, in East Java. The aim of this research is to identify why there is conflict between Muslims and Christians in the context of the fulfilment of the needs of places for worship. This study adopted a qualitative approach. Participant observation and interviews were used to collect data for this research. This was supplemented by document analysis. The study also drew on social theories, including Conflict and symbolic interactionism theory. The results of this research demonstrated that the establishment of three churches in Gresik created a conflict through the interference of Muslims in Gresik, a city which is known as the city of devoted Islamic believers (‘Santri’). The Church in the middle of the city of Santri offended some Muslims. Violations of the building regulations are what led to protests in the form of demonstrations to Gresik’s government. When analysed  using the theory of conflict, it could be inferred that the conflict in Gresik was caused by the lack of communication between Muslims and Christians. If we use the theory of symbolic interactionism, it could be inferred that the emergence of the church in Gresik is a new form of colonisation in Gresik. The conclusion of this research is that the conflict between Christians and Muslims in Gresik was caused by the lack of communication in related to the establishment of the Church. Pages 701 to 718
