Anton Minardia, Taufikb, Naufal Ridhac, a,b,cProgram Studi Ilmu Hubungan Internasional FISIP Universitas Pasundan Jalan Lengkong Besar No. 68, Bandung, Email: aabdurrahmananton1975@gmail.combtaufik@unpas.ac.idcnflrdha7@gmail.com

At the inauguration of the new President of the United States, Donald Trump, there were many factors that focussed the world's attention on him. Such as policies that were quite controversial; one of them was Trump Tariffs, as a form of protectionism. This policy has the potential to trigger a global trade war and make the country's steel exports to America problematic. The purpose of this paper is to determine the influence of the Trump Tariffs policy on Indonesia's steel exports to the United States (US). In conducting research, the author uses several sources of literature to make it easier for writers to understand the policies made by US President Donald Trump, particularly Trump Tariffs. One of them is a book written by Robert Gilpin entitled The Political Economy of International Relations. To generate understanding about international trade, the author uses the ‘International Trade Theory Paper’ written by Jukriadi. The Trump Tariffs policy is a form of United States protectionism that triggers tension between the countries affected by this policy. Many observers of the global economy say that this is the first step of a global trade war. Many countries have prepared countermeasures for the policy; Indonesia’s response to the policy included the Indonesian Minister of Trade, Enggartiasto Lukita, conducting diplomacy to enable Indonesia to avoid the Trump Tariffs policy, which was effective. This research uses an analytical descriptive method to define existing phenomena and discuss the reality that is currently developing, despite those who agree on the search for alternatives to discuss the problems and anticipations faced. This method can be compared with predictions of reality in the future. Pages 1 to 16

The aim of this study is to identify the effectiveness of the Kadazandusun language teaching and learning methods among the primary school teachers who specialise in this language. This study focuses on a systematic teaching approach by applying various teaching techniques and strategies during the teaching and learning process. It places emphasis on teaching and learning techniques such as dialogues, acting, drilling, singing, demonstration and games. 75 Kadazandusun language teachers from various primary schools in the district of Ranau Sabah, who had taught the language, were involved in this study. The descriptive review method was used as the research design, whereby a questionnaire with 30 items and inferences using the SPSS 23.0 application was prepared. The statistical tools used to analyse the data are mean and standard deviation. As a whole, the result of the study shows that the degree of acceptance regarding the teaching methods used is positive with an overall mean of 3.05. Although the overall result is positive, teachers need to attempt to integrate the Learning Model while using resources or materials. This includes classroom management; especially in the improvement of teaching and learning, as well as reducing the burdens of teachers. Several suggestions were brought forward in order for the improvements to occur. Pages 43 to 51

The Protection of Women from Violence Crimes under Iraqi Punishment Law

Mohammed Abdulmohsin Saadon Al-Machtomia, aAl-Najaf Technical Institute/ Al-Furat Al-Awsat Technical University/Iraq, Email: aInj.dr.moh@atu.edu.iq

The issue of protecting women from violent crimes is one of the most important topics covered by criminal law. The author found that women in the Iraqi Penal Code need special criminal protection that distinguishes them from the protection enjoyed by men as they are more prone to violent crimes in Iraqi society, especially the crimes of violence within the family. The author studied the criminal protection of violent crimes and focused on protection including the development of proposals that promote such protection, including the acceleration of the legislation on the protection of domestic violence in Iraq.

The Aesthetic Speech in Ammar’s Neamah Jaber Theatrical Texts

Saif Sabah Mzaida, Ali Rida Husseinb, a,b College of Fine Art, University of Babylon, Email: asaifsabah414@gmail.com

The beauty makers derive accomplishment from accidents and events to crystalise them in aesthetic formulas that bear the character of creativity. From one artist to another, even if the subject is the same, it results in a difference in artistic content of the psychological and social effects on the creator of the art. Therefore, the subjective side effects the nature of the artistic creation in addition to the surrounding effects of the environment and climate; each artistic effect is specific to its owner and is not repeated. The nature of the Iraqi society and its composition came in accordance with the ethnic and sectarian religious affiliations, where Ibn Khaldun spoke on the introduction of accurate social analysis about the nature of the Arab society when he talked about the Bedouin and urbanisation. On the other hand, the west also studied scientifically and empirically on the ills of society and the relationship of these ills to the results of a scientific nature represented in the process of getting rid of common and prior thoughts, scientific commitment, integrity and neutrality in the study of social phenomena and the distinction between the individual phenomena and social phenomena.

The Regional and International Attitude Towards the Iraqi Invasion of Kuwait in 1990

Mohammed Dakhil Kareema, aUniversity of Al- Hamdaniya/Iraq, Email: adr.mdksh@gmail.com

Kuwait was associated with Iraq by special relations ranging from dependence and association. During the Ottoman era, Kuwait was a district of the Basra Province. However, this Ottoman sovereignty was nominal because of British influence in the Gulf, which dates back to 1899 when the sheikhs of Kuwait and several other Gulf emirates signed protection treaties with Britain. They became the sheikhs following the British policy under its protection, which brought Kuwait to independence in 1961. Independence came immediately after Iraq's claim to annex Kuwait to its territory under the government of Abdul Kareem Qasim. Iraqi-Kuwaiti relations remained and at times fluctuated with tension, especially after the end of the Iran-Iraq war. The relationship is strained because of Iraq's claim to the Gulf States of war compensation, which led to the invasion of Iraqi forces in Kuwait on 2 August 1990. Furthermore, this resulted in an Arab and international crisis that was the result of an international coalition resolution of the UN Security Council to remove Iraqi forces from Kuwait by force, which was done by the end of January 1991. This crisis has received great international attention and from most countries of the world. The international media has conveyed the details of the crisis and its developments on a daily basis. Western countries have taken care of this event because of its great influence on the international interests in the Gulf region, particularly because of the oil importance of this region. The crisis has shown that there is an Arab, regional and international rejection of the Iraqi invasion and that it was a serious mistake. Various newspapers, channels and political analysts noted the active contribution of a number of Arab countries, even on the military side, including Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Morocco and Syria, with reservations from a number of other Arab countries for military action such as Jordan and Yemen, and that the crisis must be resolved politically.

 The change of political landscape in Malaysia has resulted in a higher expectation for a more accountable and transparent government.  Public auditing ensures that government administration and national development are consistent with rules and regulations. Mismanagement, corruption and fraud can be curbed through information governance as it provides a set of processes, roles, policies, standards and measures, which together ensure the efficient use of information and thus, the achievement of an organisation’s goals. This research adopts a qualitative method involving public auditors. Its findings proved that a shortage and incomplete records impede effective public auditing as auditors spend considerable time looking for relevant records.  The needs for information governance is imperative if public auditing is to be more effective, trusted and respected by members of the public.

Felly Ferol Warouwa*, Shirly Lumenob, Piet Hein Pusungc, a,bFakultas Teknik, Universitas Negeri Manado, cFakultas Manajemen Pemerintahan, Institut Pemerintahan Dalam Negeri, Email: a*ferolwarouw@unima.ac.id

In line with the development of tourism, information technology in the coastal city of Manado is growing. This development has an effect on the change in function of the Bay of Manado coastline to become a favourite area for tourists. The entry of one million tourists from China to North Sulawesi helped drive changes in the coastal environment. This study aims to discover the implementation of government responsibilities in the management of tourism in the coastal areas of the Bay of Manado and to determine the inhibiting factors of the implementation of government responsibilities in managing the coastal environment. This research was carried out on the coast of the Bay of Manado. In this study, the type of data collected consists of primary data and secondary data. This type of research is quantitative using the analytical descriptive method. The process undertaken is to examine the data that has been obtained to ensure whether the data can be justified in accordance with reality. After the data is processed and deemed sufficient, it is then presented in narrative form and possibly also in tabular form. The results showed that the implementation of government responsibilities in the environmental management on the coast of the Bay of Manado was running less than optimally in terms of participation at the degree of consultation, and not yet at the degree of community control. It is clear that there are three factors which hinder the implementation of the responsibility of the Manado City Regional Government in the management of tourism in the coastal area; namely environmental, institutional, and community participation.

This study analyzes the readiness of the Indonesian people to reach the United Nations ‘Planet 50:50 Gender Equality in 2030’ target, using government support. A qualitative approach was used to assess the problem, with secondary data as the primary source. The Focus Group Discussion (FGD) is a forum to get clarification and input from experts and observers of gender equality in Indonesia. Secondary data and recapitulations of FGD results were analyzed, using narrative descriptive analysis. Research results show that: (1) Discrimination against Indonesian women will continue, especially in the public and government spheres. Opportunities for women to fill strategic positions are still marked by close competition with men. (2) Violence against women continues to increase from year to year. Even if there is a decrease in the number or percentage, it does not mean that cases of violence against women have begun to decrease. However, there are still many unreported cases. Reported cases are just the tip of the iceberg. (3) Women's participation has not fulfilled the 30% quota in parliament, despite the government’s affirmative action policy which requires each political party to include 30% of candidates for legislative positions. In reality, only 20% was reached in the 2019 elections. The ideals of the Indonesian people towards Planet 50:50 Gender Equality in 2030 still have to pass through a long and winding road, due to various factors. There continues to be much confusion in the community in even understanding gender issues, and so Gender Mainstreaming Programs (PUG) still experience many obstacles. Likewise, various government policies relating to gender equality, which eliminate discrimination, minimize violence against women and children, as well as affirmative action policies encouraging a 30% quota for women in parliament, still face obstacles. Thus, their achievement has not been maximized. Pages 222 to 235

This research was carried out against the background of the still high mortality rates of mothers and babies after giving birth. This is a special problem for Indonesia and other countries with the same experience. To overcome the high mortality rates for pregnant women and infants, a web-based application and SMS gateway solution is needed. This application monitors the health of pregnant women and infants in remote villages, far from adequate health services. Pregnant women can be helped through mobile services accessed easily via the web and SMS. Through information technology, the limitations of time and space can be overcome. The application was trialled at a health service centre in Kepanjen Malang, East Java. It can be integrated more widely using the internet. An experiment over five months turned out to be quite encouraging as a tool for collecting data on pregnant women, both those who did not experience health problems and those with certain health problems in their pregnancy. A web-based application and SMS gateway are quite capable of helping medical personnel, as they collect accurate data on the distribution of unhealthy pregnant women in the Kepanjen region. Given these encouraging results locally, this application can be applied elsewhere to improve health services for pregnant women and infants. The next task of researchers is to disseminate information at each health service centre in the East Java region. Pages 236 to 252

Buildings are responsible for up to 50% of greenhouse gas emissions worldwide, and more than 30% of energy use. Studies show that 90% of building life span occurs during operation and maintenance. Hence, construction professionals should address life cycle environmental considerations. The Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) is crucial in achieving sustainable building design, as it offers an objective and consistent measurement of environmental impacts from construction materials and assemblies. Building Information Modelling (BIM) technology could automate LCA into one single platform. This research proposes a BIM-enabled Life Cycle Assessment Framework, to trade-off embodied energy against predicted operational energy consumption in construction projects. The research identified assessment parameters for LCA. It then mapped out in the digital construction process using BIM as a platform. The conceptual framework was validated by BIM experts and Quantity Surveyors who are knowledgeable in this area. They were selected using snowball sampling methodology. Ultimately, recognizing the environmental impact encourages the use of materials with low environmental impact. It will also echo our government’s various efforts to assist industry players in embracing Industry 4.0, through the adoption of digital technologies. Pages 253 to 276

Education is a lifelong learning process that includes formal study in a classroom. However, some students struggle to concentrate in the classroom. This study shows that the classroom focus of students can be improved using lighting stimulation. The effects of lighting stimulation were studied. An experimental classroom was prepared with a standard illumination, and equipped with three differently coloured lighting temperatures. Students were then asked to relate, on a questionnaire, their level of comfort and focus to the lighting stimulation. An electroencephalogram of some students’ brainwaves was also recorded. The analysis of the questionnaire results and the brainwave pattern confirmed that the lighting stimulation enhanced the learning experience in the classroom, by altering the brainwave pattern to a more focused state.

The Community-Based Clean Water Facility Program (SABBM), which began in 2018 in Cibadak Village, Tanjungsari District, Bogor Regency, West Java, in 2019, entered the process of strengthening institutions and implementing village regulations. Clean Water Management Agency (BPAB) is an institution established to carry out its duties as manager of clean water facilities by existing village regulations. The study was conducted with the Participatory Action Research method or PAP. The results showed that the local political culture in rural areas in Cibadak Village is a combination of parochial political culture and political culture of the subject. The combination of these two forms of political culture is still compounded by the strong kinship network, the lack of concern from the village government, and the apathetic attitude of the community.

The purpose of this study is to explain the rise of the exclusive labour movement in Indonesia. The study was conducted using qualitative method, data were collected through interviews and the validity of the data was examined by cross-checking among informants. Data analysis was accomplished using the illustrative and inductive methods. The finding is that Indonesia has been implementing identity politics for decades and was praised by many world leaders when it successfully achieved democracy through free, honest, and fair elections after years of authoritarian government. However, conservatism moved slowly towards the exclusive parties. After several provinces and districts had succeeded in establishing regional regulations which accommodated Islamic teachings (Shari'a), social movements, including labour, increasingly and actively championed it in industrial relations. In the most extensive industrial areas in Indonesia, Islamic unions are striving for the concept of industrial relations, through identity politics and collaboration with similar exclusive movements continues by utilizing a democratic system.
