Abstract

This study aims to determine the management of digital archives at the Syar'iyah Court Office of East Aceh Regency, Indonesia, as well as finding obstacles encountered in their implementation. This research is a qualitative analysis where the subjects of this research were officers who managed digital archives at the Syar'iyah Court office. The data collection techniques employed were interviews, observations, and documentation. The results of this study indicate that the management of digital archives at the Syar'iyah Court Office has not been implemented optimally due to three conditions, namely: 1) The creation of digital archives is hampered due to frequent power outages in East Aceh and Sarana districts which are less supportive, and lack of resources. employees who understand digital archiving issues; 2) The process of borrowing archives carried out at the Syar'iyah Court Office has not been going well because it has not used archive lending procedures such as requesting archives, searching, retrieval of archives, recording, controlling, and storing again, to prevent loss of records; 3) Archive rediscovery still takes quite a long time, ranging from 20 to 30 minutes. The management of digital archives at the Office of the Syar'iyah Idi Court of East Aceh Regency should be improved by proposing additional archiving facilities, namely the latest model scan tool and additional employees who handle digital archive issues.

Abstract

This study aims to identify the effectiveness of implementing administrative sanctions toward personal tax income at the Tax Office in the Aceh province. A qualitative method was applied in collecting the data through observation, semi-structured in-depth interviews, and document analysis. The finding reported that most taxpayers in the city did not submit their reports honestly and appropriately. They did not register to become taxpayers when the income earned has exceeded the lower limit of income following Law Number 36 of 2008 concerning Income Tax. Besides, the number of addresses of taxpayers is incomplete or incorrect, making it difficult for officers to visit their homes or offices. Invalid Taxpayer Identity also making it difficult for officers to send Tax Bill (STP) to taxpayers. To realize the implementation of administrative sanctions operating efficiently, the community (taxpayer) is required to understand the purpose and benefits of taxes. The citizen needs to realize that the tax will be used by the government to build infrastructures for the city and develop social prosperity and well-being through improving health, nutrition, education, and social services.

Abstract

This study aims to understand and look closely political beliefs of the villagers in the North Aceh Regency after the 2017 gubernatorial election. A qualitative method was employed and the data were generated from written or spoken words from people and their behaviors. Observations and personal in-depth interviews were conducted to collect rigorous information from the informants at a village in the North Aceh district, Indonesia. The finding reported that the behavior of the community in responding to the political dynamics after the election for Governor of Aceh in 2017 continued to behave according to the conditions of a political party that they supported to achieve particular goals. Their responses were increasingly rational and willing to accept differences and participated based on shared awareness to build the nation so that they could feel the welfare of living in peace. The finding implies that societies now can no longer be lied to with irrational promises from the politicians during the political campaign. People are now becoming intelligent and rational in the political election because they have learned lessons from numerous political blunders in the past.

Abstract

This study aims to identify the strategy of implementing Qanun (law) No. 6/2014 on Jinayah (the act of sin) law in the Aceh province, Indonesia. The challenges of implementing the Qanun were also investigated during the study. This investigation was conducted in Lhokseumawe (a city in the Aceh province) and is believed as the area where more violations of shari'a (Islamic canonical law) occurred. The research method adopted was qualitative and the data were collected through interviews and document analysis. The results of the study reported that there are still some personalities or local Acehnese opposed to the implementation of the Jinayat law qanun. Most communities were also lack understanding of this qanun implementation. The findings of the study imply that the communication strategy that has been carried out between stakeholders has not yet reaped maximum results. It infers that the implementation of Qanun No. 6/2014 on Jinayah law has not been going well in Lhokseumawe City due to several motives. One of them is a lack of communication between stakeholders. Besides, unfairness occurred in prosecute violators of Qanun number 2014 concerning the Jinayah law. This means that this law is only applied to ordinary people and not the families of government officials or the rich. Besides, the Qanun Jinayah also believed discriminated against women, especially the victims of rape. In this case, the Qanun Jinayah proffers a double strain on the victims where women victims of rape must present evidence and witnesses.

Abstract

Educational development must be carried out thoughtfully, following the principles of good governance which is transparent, effective, and efficient. Education becomes a solution for the intellectual life of the nation and a key enabler for sustainable development. Realizing this principle of efficiency and effectiveness, the government adopted a policy of merging 15 Education Technical Implementation Units (UPTD) at the North Aceh Education and Culture Office. The research found that in North Aceh District, 15 UPTD were merged into the Education and Culture Office, which disrupted 30 structural officials losing their positions, and 90 honorary staffs are no longer receiving salaries. The study suggests that the local government should carefully and well-designed the regulations regarding the merging 15 Education Technical Implementation Units at the North Aceh regency. The accurate implementation of the policy will not sacrifice many teaching staff and administrative officers. However, we realize that the principle of efficiency for this task is to save the use of the education budget.

Abstract

The study aims to review the supervision of Labor Rights in the North Aceh District, particularly in the Krueng Keureutoe Dam Development Project, which is under the responsibility of the Office of Investment, Transmigration, and Manpower. This study involved 12 informants who were determined purposively. It was found that the Krueng Keureutoe Dam Development Project accommodated 630 workers using a budget of Rp. 1.7 trillion whose construction was carried out by PT. Hutama Karya, PT. Widya Karya, PT. Berantas, and PT. Perapen Jo. One of these companies, namely PT. Perapen Jo. The company has 138 workers and it has violated the law in fulfilling its labor rights responsibilities, namely the payment of salaries/wages below the Aceh UMP Rp. 2,000,000/month which should have been Rp. 2,717,750/month. Other problems found that the overtime working hours but without payment; no safety equipment such as helmets, shoes, work clothes; no religious holiday allowance (THR), less company recognition on leaving permit; and lacking supplies of medicines. However, this supervision has not been accomplished completely, because there are still numerous violations of legal rules in fulfilling the rights of workers in this project. This study suggests that the government should give a big concern on this case by conducting intensive and continuous monitoring regularly, giving verbal and written warnings, and providing sanctions if required.

Abstract

The government, through the Directorate General of Immigration, an Indonesian government agency under the Ministry of Law and Human Rights, has carried out one of its duties and functions, namely the supervision and control of foreigners residing in Indonesian territory, based on Law Number 6, 2011 concerning Immigration. The supervision or control is carried out to enforce the law, especially the immigration law. The class II Lhokseumawe Immigration Office in the Aceh province, which is the technical implementation unit for immigration in the region, has carried out its duties and functions of monitoring and controlling foreigners in its working area since the release of regulation No. 6, 2011. The results of this study reported that the implementation of supervision of foreigners at the Lhokseumawe Immigration Office has been carried out properly based on the regulation concerning Immigration and Regulation of the Minister of Law and Human Rights. But some constraints are still encountered, particularly lack of supervisory staff number, the width of the working area, and the limited budget. The author's suggestion should be that the implementation of supervision and control of foreigners at this working area should be carried out as often as possible and at the same time, the stakeholder (government) should resolve the obstacles met by staffs so that the immigration law enforcement can be achieved and improved.

Abstract

The Human Resources Development Personnel Agency (BKPSDM) performs an important role in improving the performance of qualified employees through education and training programs that are prepared to answer the needs of public demands. The benefits of training for employees are not only for BKPSDM work productivity but also for ASN personnel after gaining training experience both in the transfer of knowledge, behavior, attitudes, and career duties. The obstacles faced by the BKPSDM of Lhokseumawe City are basically external obstacles, namely the reduction of irrelevant budgets as proposed to carry out the BKPSDM program and the unavailability of building facilities such as halls in carrying out education and training for employees within the local government. Meanwhile, internal obstacles have so far not been found and have not become the main problem to be criticized. Basically, BKPSDM Lhokseumawe City has the task of implementing administrative affairs, compiling annual, medium-term, and long-term work programs. In addition, he is also responsible for the formulation of technical personnel policies, the implementation of education and training for civil servants, as well as administrative services for the smooth implementation of education and training.
