The research was focused on investigating the collaborative process between stakeholders and the differences in the two countries’ interests. This qualitative research was a case study with content analysis and descriptive techniques. The data collection techniques used were in-depth interviews with relevant stakeholders and document collection. The study results indicate that all stages have been carried out in the collaboration process, starting from face-to-face, building trust, negotiation and discussion, and commitment. However, the differences in the two countries’ interests are also clearly visible, such as the Government of Indonesia prioritising the placement and protection of migrant workers and prioritising the protection of users (employers) and International Domestic Migrant Workers (employees or Indonesian Domestic Migrant Workers) in Malaysia.

This systematic literature review aimed to analyse the studies on organisational communication, especially female leadership. The data collection was conducted on Google Scholar, Researchgate, and other reputable journals using the following keywords: “female leadership in organisational communication,” “women, leadership and organisation,” and “organisation, leadership and gender.” From these searches, fifty articles were investigated for the role of female leadership in organisational communication perspective. The result indicates that women can carry out their role as leaders in line with the organisational transformations. As leaders, women must be able to become the main communicator in the organisation. The results also reveal that from the perspective of organisational communication, many female leaders use democratic leadership styles. In terms of Role Theory, we found that female leaders can carry out their roles well, thus positively impacting the organisation.

This study sought to examine any form of criticism and resistance against the growing religious intolerance in Indonesian contemporary indie songs. The study of indie music is often marginalised in media and communication studies, even though the music itself is an effective form of media to convey socio-political messages. Indie music shows an increasingly crucial role within the map of cultural products in Indonesia mainly because it is considered an important means of conveying messages and alternative media for new Indonesian youth. Indie musicians cover sensitive issues within their lyric, including religious intolerance perpetrated by conservative Muslim groups in Indonesia. Through the discourse analysis method by Teun Van Dijk, this study found three forms of resistance discourse found in Indonesian indie music: a critique towards middle-class Muslims hypocrisy, rejection against the imposition of the sharia law, and the lament over the loss of humanity in religious practice. The research findings show that indie songs serve as a medium of resistance to a more secular, youthful audience against many issues seldom covered in mainstream media.

The study's goals were to determine the impact of community empowerment for the springs and forest preservation in the Arjuna mount area from the environmental communication perspective. The quantitative descriptive research method was used, with the study population covered communities around the forest and springs that were domiciled in three villages, namely Leduk, Jatiarjo, Dayurejo Villages, Pasuruan-East Java, Indonesia. Data was gathered from respondents with a questionnaire and analysed using SEM (structural equation modelling) to find an overview of respondents' responses about community participation in preserving the Arjuna mount forest. Human resources around the forest, namely the level of education and employment, contribute to the success of revegetation of forests; family economic conditions such as personal and family income, ownership of fields and rice fields for business, and livestock and fisheries businesses assist successful forest revegetation; social characteristics of the community around the forest such as cooperation and kinship between community members contribute to forest revegetation; community institutions, namely forest village community institutions, are a vehicle for the community to revegetate forests successfully; the availability of village community facilities and infrastructures such as paved road access, transportation and communication networks, education and health facilities contribute to the successful revegetation of Arjuna mount forest.

The development in Video on Demand (VOD) services technology has proven to increase the chance of binge-watching. However, early literature about binge-watching only focuses on health risk and their opinion on this topic. Therefore, this study intended to find aspects that affect binge-watching duration among college students. Theory of planned behaviour (TPB) that discusses the role of attitude and intention on an individual’s behavior was applied to find the affected aspect of binge-watching duration. Variables such as need for completion, personalised suggestions, and cliffhanger were analysed as moderators. Participants of this study were active Indonesian undergraduate students who were selected by applying snowball sampling method. Data were collected using online questionnaire using Likert Scale and terbuka questions on Google Form. The results indicate that TPB, need for completion, personalised suggestions, and cliffhanger correlated to binge-watching duration among undergraduate students.

Public participation in policymaking remains a significant challenge in Indonesia. Previous studies found that public participation in the policymaking process is still dominated by the elite (i.e. policymakers). This paper argues that a lack of well-informed public causes diminishing public involvement in policymaking. This study aims to fill the gap in public participation study in Indonesia, particularly the impact of public information on public participation. This study measures to what extent public information awareness and public information service may form public participation behaviour. As quantitative research, this study uses a survey as the primary method to collect data. The questionnaire was constructed through concepts and legal documents related to public information disclosure and public information services. The multi-stage proportional random sampling is applied with the number of samples in this study is 1,584 in 25 provinces (out of 34 provinces). The results show that public information awareness significantly impacts public participation, while public information service satisfaction does not affect public participation.

Covid-19 has resulted in a global health and socioeconomic crisis that is still unprecedented in history. Since Indonesia confirmed its first Covid-19 case, UNICEF has led several pandemic response efforts in collaboration with the government, the World Health Organization (WHO), and other partners. This research discussed the process of handling the Covid-19 pandemic in Indonesia. The theory used in this research was the Spiral of Silence theory, while the method used van Dijk's Critical Discourse Analysis. The object of research was articles on Kompas.com published from August to December 2020. We concluded that the government provides too much security through nonverbal languages, such as not providing examples of the health protocol implementation that should have been implemented during the Covid-19 pandemic. Furthermore, there is still a sense of security generated in the absence of compliance with policies and sanctions that should have been implemented. As a result, the public has become oblivious to the applicable regulations and believes that the pandemic is not a major issue. As a result, this condition has worsened the Covid-19 pandemic situation in Indonesia.

The study examined journalism practices covering Coronavirus disease (Covid-19), particularly online journalism in Solo, one of the metropolitan cities in Central Java Province of Indonesia. Solo is the first city in Indonesia to declare an extraordinary event due to the Covid-19 pandemic after coronavirus-linked deaths were reported. The notion of a dilemmatic situation, mainly in content selection, is the central perspective in this research. This research referred to news value theory and agenda-setting that used a qualitative approach method. The data were obtained through interviews with 20 journalists of online media in Solo. We also included non-participatory observation in the Solopos.com newsroom. The study suggests that, to some extent, journalists face a dilemma in choosing content to present news that concerns the public interest during the Covid-19 pandemic. The dilemma included determining interesting issues, attracting the public interest, and becoming meaningful to the readers, but not to endanger the personal safety and maintain professional sustainability because there is no news worthy of a life.

After the Covid-19 outbreak, the emergence of an economic recession is the impact of various policies to prevent the spread of the virus, such as the extreme lockdown policy to Large-Scale Social Restrictions. Sampang, a small regency in Madura Island, Indonesia, has successfully maintained the low case of Covid-19. This article elaborates on the success of the Sampang Regency in maintaining its green zone status. More specifically, what is the Sampang government's communication strategy during the Covid-19 pandemics. This article used a qualitative method with a case study approach in ten villages of Sampang with a Focus Group Discussion. The results show that the local elite's communication strategy in Sampang during the pandemic situation does not only physically come directly to the field or meet villagers but also virtually using mass media effective to maintain the low index Covid-19 transmission.

The issue of planning for halal tourism in Lake Toba is controversial, in the form of rejection from residents around the Lake Toba area, this is due to two factors; namely, the issue of halal tourism is considered to threaten the cultural existence of the Batak people and the threat of Islamisation through the medium of halal tourism. This tension requires local governments to take conflict management steps following the existing historical, social context. This study uses an organisational communication perspective to describe the conflicts that occur. This study's findings are that the local government of North Sumatra has not optimally used an organisational communication approach involving all cultural-based community organisations to formulate a mutual agreement regarding halal tourism plans in Lake Toba.
