  • The sociology of law in the context of Islamic Legal Scholarship in Indonesia

    Pradana Boy ZTF (Universitas Negeri Yogyakarta, 2022-10-01)
    This article examines the sociology of law in the context of Islamic legal scholarship in Indonesia. As a method, the sociology of law has basically been employed by Islamic legal scholars in Indonesia. However, the study of Islamic law is generally under the discipline of Islamic studies. In fact, although Islamic studies in Indonesia has recently utilised social sciences methods, the popularity of this approach is low compared to normative and textual types of Islamic legal studies. In addition, the trend of positivism which has been a general feature of Islamic legal studies has significantly contributed to this situation. In the light of this context, this article offers a view that the adoption of the sociology of law in the context of Islamic legal studies scholarship in Indonesia will serve as an alternative. It is expected that Islamic legal studies will be more multidisciplinary in nature and be based on more tacit social realities in substance.

  • Publicity or impact? The use of crowdfunding by Indonesian social media influencers during the covid-19 pandemic

    Nissa Cita Adinia; Mediana Hanifa (Universitas Negeri Yogyakarta, 2022-05-01)
    Indonesia is marching toward tackling challenges during the endless Covid-19 pandemic. Under a situation known as VUCA (volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous), a troop of social media influencers (SMI) paved the way to create crowdfunding initiatives. Shedding from the discussion of disaster capitalism, where individual or entities make profit from large-scale crises, also take advantage of the destabilized atmosphere, this paper analyses the initiatives of three Indonesian social media influencers in raising funds through from March to November 2020. Under the hashtag #BersamaLawanCorona (together fight the corona), the biggest crowdfunding platform, has gathered more than 158 billion rupiahs (11,2 million USD) taken from 5.655 campaigns during March to November 2020 period. These efforts are mainly pioneered by SMIs and their followers. Combining desk review and social media analysis method, the paper revealed that the crowdfunding initiatives by SMIs portrayed two sides of a coin: on the one hand reflects the emergence of solidarity and social contribution to create a positive impact, and on the other, generates publicity. It is, however, too quick to conclude whether the initiatives reflect a practice of disaster capitalism, because the publicity that they generated for these crowdfunding initiatives were not higher compare to publicity they gained from their everyday content.

    Gilang Jiwana Adikara (Universitas Negeri Yogyakarta, 2022-05-01)
    The land management regulations under Law No.13/2002 on the Privilege of Yogyakarta (Privileged Law/UUK) which were fully handed over to the Ngayogyakarta Hadiningrat Sultanate received the spotlight after the publication of a series of investigative reports that revealed allegations of land maladministration in Special Region of Yogyakarta (DIY).

This study concludes that the three mass media in DIY, Kedaulatan Rakyat, Tribun Jogja, and Harian Jogja image that the Ngayogyakarta Hadiningrat Sultanate has properly managed and utilized land rights obtained through the mandate of the Privileges Law for the benefit of the general public.

    Hasnan Bachtiar; Muneerah Razak; Soni Zakaria (Universitas Negeri Yogyakarta, 2021-03-01)
    Indonesia, as one of the largest majority Muslim countries, has had a consistent stance on the Israel-Palestine conflict since its inception. Despite the general pro-Palestinian stance, this article explores the discourse of three significant leaders of the Indonesian people - Soekarno, Abdurrahman Wahid and Ahmad Syafii Maarif. As presidents of Indonesia of different time periods of Indonesia, Soekarno and Wahid tended to be pragmatic in their articulation of their political stances, though it is articulated in different ways. Maarif, as the leader of Muhammadiyah, a popular non-governmental organisation on the ground, was more idealistic and concerned with anti-Zionism. This article highlights that the different nuances of the three leaders is due to their different capacities as leaders, their social and political contexts, and the intellectual leanings and experiences.
