The passage of the DV laws in Ghana and Nigeria made the police the primary agency to respond to DV: however, there is limited research on how police handle domestic violence in the two countries. This study, therefore, critically interrogated police intervention strategies in handling DV and their effectiveness in Ghana and Nigeria. In-depth interviews were conducted with 100 female victims of DV who have utilized police services and 30 police officers who handle DV cases. In addition, ethnographic observations were made in the police stations. The study found that arrest and detention, prosecution at the law court and the use of caution letters are the major conventional strategies used by the Ghana and Nigeria police to handle domestic violence. The two police institutions also adopted culturally sensitive approaches such as mediation, invitation letters and the use of minor punishment to deter offenders and potential offenders. There were a few variations in how the two police institutions handled domestic violence. The Ghana police utilized invisible arrest to preserve family relationships while the Nigeria police adopted naming and shaming of perpetrators to deter the public. The effectiveness of the interventions was mixed, depending on cultural acceptability, victims’ needs and impact on perpetrators. Police interventions emphasized punishments, and this often brought swift changes in offenders’ behavior but the changes were not sustainable.</p> 2023-02-09T00:00:00+07:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Women’s Agency and Political Participation in Darjeeling 2022-12-31T20:02:29+07:00 Binu Sundas [email protected] <p>The demand for the separation of Darjeeling from Bengal goes back to 1907. The demand in the colonial period was not consistent and was limited to the submission of memorandums. During the colonial period, politics was elitist and the common people and women were not part of it. Even after the independence of India, women in Darjeeling did not take part in the movement for the creation of Gorkhaland. Their political participation was limited. It was only in the 1980s when the movement gained momentum that women started to participate. Since then women have been able to use their agency to empower themselves and create their own collective identity and participate in the movement. Post the formation of the Darjeeling Gorkha Hill Council and the emergence of Gorkha Janmukti Morcha women have created a political identity for themselves in the male-dominated political realm. Their shared experiences and beliefs have assisted them in breaking traditional barriers to play a new role of political subjects and transform society by being the agents of change in history.</p> 2023-02-09T00:00:00+07:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Literature Review: Health Aspects and Legal Protection for Children in Scotland and Indonesia 2023-02-04T21:30:11+07:00 Rita Komalasari [email protected] <p>This paper for the first time presents the results of research related to Health Aspects and Legal Protection for Children. The research method presented in this paper is a literature study. Two countries, Scotland and Indonesia, were included to gain various perspectives through a literature review. The results show that the Health and Legal Protection Aspects for children are still based on the philosophical approach to the welfare and best interests of children.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> 2023-02-09T00:00:00+07:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Position of Women's Education in Accomplishing Sustainable Development Goals 2023-02-04T00:58:58+07:00 Satrio Dwi Haryono [email protected] Syufi Astuti Muliyana [email protected] <p>This article aims to explain how the position of women's education towards the Sustainable Development Goals. The issue of gender equality in education needs to be addressed. The reason is that the role of humans in various lines of life cannot be represented by one gender alone. However, it is necessary to provide space and justice for other genders in various walks of life. Considering that education is one of the important variables in an effort to create a humane and just life. Although, in terms of quantity, education has found a point of equality. However, on the other hand, the quality is still far from equal. With that, it is necessary to rebuild equal and quality education on the basis that there is no dichotomy between the roles of women and men in various lines of life. The 17 goals of the Sustainable Development Goals will be played jointly by men and women.</p> 2023-02-09T00:00:00+07:00 Copyright (c) 2023 The Role Equality of Nyai in the Development of Islamic Boarding School (Pesantren) 2023-02-05T20:36:12+07:00 Moh. Mahbub [email protected] Kamila Adnani [email protected] <p>The hegemony of the Islamic boarding school (<em>pesantren</em>) has been related to the power of a <em>Kiai</em>. Nowadays, it has been changed by gender equality between <em>Nyai </em>and <em>Kiai</em> in Islamic boarding schools. A <em>Kiai</em> or <em>Nyai</em> can play a role inside or outside of the Islamic boarding school (<em>pesantren</em>). The role of the <em>Kiai</em> as a teacher, caretaker, and owner of the Islamic boarding school (<em>pesantren</em>) is quite dominant. In fact, it is found that a <em>Nyai</em> can also play a role in the development of education, economy, and relations in Islamic boarding schools (<em>pesantren</em>). This study applied a qualitative method with a phenomenological-constructionist approach. Data Collection Techniques were conducted by observation, interview, and documentation. The research results explained that the roles equality of <em>Kiai</em> and <em>Nyai</em> are obtained through a process of adaptation and the existence of space allowing the division of tasks between <em>Kiai </em>and <em>Nyai</em> as the efforts in developing Islamic boarding schools (<em>pesantren</em>).</p> 2023-02-09T00:00:00+07:00 Copyright (c) 2023
