This study reveals that the implementation of Islamic syariat has fundamentally changed its view from political issue to basic human rights. The existing of Indonesian government can not eventually stop the implementation of syariat Islam taking place in Indonesia. The International Covenant on Civics and Political Rights (ICCPR) 1966 and the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ICESCR) 1996 and also the 1945 Indonesian Constitution have shown to concern in protecting religious implementation. The implementation of Islamic Syariat Law in Aceh, Banten and South Sulawesi Provinces has given a significant evidence. The notion of the freedom expression and freedom of religion based on international and national laws make Indonesian government has dramatically changed its attitude to be more democratic and tolerant. Keywords: Syariat Islam, Hak Asasi Manusia, Konstitusi

Recently, we are witnessing the vast expansion of the use of social methods in law research. The so-called socio-legal research is one way of using scientific methodologies in social science disciplines (such as sociology, anthropology, economics, language) to find answers for legal problems. In this paper I would like to unfold how these methods influence the legal reasoning in legal research, to what extent they can be used or even to be misused. Law, is a specific subject, in which law text are authoritative in nature, which makes it having its own particularities that differs it from other texts. As an authoritative text, approach to law is narrowed as it supposed to maintain the certainty of the law itself. However, legal problems do not always concern with merely legal text, it also touches many aspects of the societies, which for this part, law needs approaches from other social sciences methods. In this writing, legal research methods are differentiated based on the user of the information it will provide. Keywords: legal research, socio-legal studies, interdisciplinary studies

This writing is a reflective analytical description on the relations between primordialism, pluralism and democracy. By using historical analysis, the writer tries to unfold how the words “democracy” arose as an idea that led to a social movement. Democracy was used to largely interpreted as “modernism” or “developed”, which later debates also included the desire for equality of rights and status. This later idea has brought the first social movement against colonialism. By the time Indonesia gained its independence, democracy was thought to be – and can only be achieved – if the people can free themselves from primordial bounds. the imagined democratic community is a community with a social structure and system that is able to bloom a “Cultural Bazaar” condition, a “market” that spares room for pluralism. Then, under this conditions, new values can be nurtured as a base to re-create the new society. Keywords: primordialism, pluralism, democracy, historical analysis

This essay is a preliminary analysis on social condition of Chinese people as well as the Kalang of Java in relation to their social identity as ‘merchant family’. Both of them are minority groups of people in rural Java. Though ethnographical research in a Javanese village in Banyumas District, Central Java for four months, I realised that the Chinese and the Kalang are identified by the Javanese as ‘merchant family’ based on ‘market-place culture’ (budaya pasar). Accordingly, market-place culture can be defined as collective way of life that placed local trading activity and livelihood as a main socio-economic orientation of the family. Meanwhile, the Javanese, as dominant ethnic group in the village, see themselves and been seen by Chinese and the Kalangs as thani or traditional land cultivator who hold ‘land-culture’ (budaya lahan) as their main socio-economic orientation. Among their Javanese neighbours, the Chinese and the Kalangs’ social identity is accepted through reproducing their myth of origin and to differentiate their group norms and values.

Artikel ini memfokuskan pada upaya bersama-sama yang dilakukan penulis dengan generasi muda di dua suku yaitu Marori dan Kanum di Kabupaten Merauke, Papua untuk melakukan dokumentasi bahasa dan nilai-nilai budaya mengenai hubungan mereka dengan lingkungannya. Kondisi perubahan sosial budaya menghimpit mereka dan pondasi pengetahuan lokal dalam pemanfaatan lingkunga menjadi tergoyahkan. Masyarakat lokal memiliki pengetahuan kaya yang menunjukkan relasi panjang dengan lingkungan alam sekitarnya. Dari perspektif masyarakat terdapat pemetaan ruang-ruang hidup yang mencakup wilayah perkampungan, perkebunan, dan leluhur (pamali). Masyarakat juga menamai wilayah-wilayah tersebut dengan bahasa lokal yang biasanya mengacu kepada nama-nama tumbuhan, hewan, atau peristiwa sejarah penting di lokasi tersebut. Bahasa-bahasa tersebut memiliki makna yang luas dan menjadi cermin ekspresi kebudayaan orang Marori dan Kanum. Dokumentasi bahasa dan makna budaya yang menyertainya sangat penting untuk dilakukan sebagai penanda pengetahuan lokal yang hidup dan berkembang di tengah masyarakat. Usaha tersebut tidak mudah di tengah mulai tercerabutnya akar budaya dan hilangnya pengetahuan bahasa lokal. Penghargaan terhadap lingkungan menjadi terabaikan dan perusakan berlangsung terus-menerus untuk kepentingan uang. This article focuses on exploring the use of mother tongue on sacred places for the Marori and Kanum People in Merauke District, Papua. The mother tongue for sacred places contains the meaning that links people's relationship with their environment. Local people have rich knowledge that shows long relationships with the surrounding natural environment. There are mapping of living spaces covering the village area, plantations, and ancestors (pamali) from their perspective of society. The community also names these areas in their mother tongue, which usually refers to the names of important plants, animals, or historical events at the site. These mother tounge have a wide meaning and mirror the cultural expressions of Marori and Kanum people. The condition of socio-cultural change hinders them and, moreover, the foundation of their local knowledge in the utilization of the environment becomes unsteady. This article explores the meaning behind the mother tongues in the living spaces of Marori and Kanum people. Mother tongue translation becomes very urgen amid socio-cultural changes that cause damage to the environment. The effort is not easy amid the loss process of culture and knowledge of local languages. The efforts to protect the environment have been abandoned and the process of destruction has occurred continuously for the sake of economic interests.

The assumption which underlies this paper is that theater in general can document empirical events which take place in a society as the surroundings of the theater, and that such a documentation is put down and undergoes as sort of fixation in the narrative of that theater. Based on such an assumption the author tries to look into the narratives of the Betawi theaters, lenong,topen. In fact certain sorts of narrative deserve, according to the author, a special attention, since they migh document certain since they might document certain ideas whiche, though not manifaest in the performance, migh to be of great importance and significance.
