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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

A Right to Fair Trial

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

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

The Legal Adjustment for COVID19 Transmission Crimes in Jordanian Law

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Dynamics of Innovation in the Informal Settings

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Identity Movements, Religious Organisations and Social Harmony in North Sumatra

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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