The pros and cons were debated in limiting national legal substance with full recognition of Customary Criminal Law in the bill of Criminal Code and its future enforcement. On the other hand, there are arguments against the inclusion of Customary Criminal Law in the Criminal Code and the resulting disparities in legal enforcement caused by some Judges’ ignorance of judging customary criminal cases settled with the imposition of customary sanctions, which resulted in an unjust situation. This article aims to serve as a legal academic framework for establishing, identifying, and analyzing the formulation of Customary Criminal Law into the Indonesian Criminal Code, as well as to contribute to the discussion of judges’ roles in sentencing customary criminal cases, which they should determine and judge based on customary law. This article demonstrated the use of normative legal research in conjunction with statutory law, legal conceptual, and philosophical approaches to law. This article discovered that: first, several issues concerning the formulation of Customary Criminal Law into several national Bills of Criminal Code were debatable; second, it also cannot be enacted due to conflicting contexts with Criminal Law principles, unwillingness, and an ambiguous law-making process. Furthermore, the prospect of including the Customary Criminal Law in the Bill of Criminal Code is based on various justifications and legal needs that reflect the diverse local genius that still exists and adheres to Pancasila law principles. Additionally, it relates to a proposed new paradigm that Judges and other legal enforcers should adopt when enforcing Customary Criminal Law in any criminal customary case.

This research aims to identify the regulation and dispute resolution regarding constructive termination of employment by a company in the perspective of Indonesian Labor Law. This research also compares the constructive termination of employment by companies based on International Law and Japan Labor Law. This is normative legal research with a statutory approach, conceptual approach, and also comparative law approach. The result shows that the constructive termination of employment has not been specifically regulated in the Indonesian Labor Law system, hence it becomes an exploitation gap that is used by companies to be able to terminate employment relations without protecting the worker’s right. The dispute resolution mechanism in terms of constructive termination of employments still refers to the provisions of the Industrial Relations Dispute Settlement Law, namely through bipartite negotiations, tripartite, and industrial relations courts. The constructive termination of employment has been substantively regulated in the ILO Convention C-158 concerning the Termination of Employment, which regulated in Article 4 to Article 6. Further in Japan, the constructive termination of employment is regulated in the Japan Labor Union Act, Act Number 174 of 1949 in Article 7 paragraph (i), (iii), and (iv) with its national enforcement.

Trafficking in persons is a cross-border crime which injures human dignity. The mode of trafficking in persons is to take advantage of the economic conditions of potential victims by luring them a better job. This research will discuss the profile of victims of trafficking in persons, gender analysis in human trafficking, and international policies in victim protection that are gender equality oriented. This research is a normative juridical study examining the analysis of international legal instruments, laws and court decisions. The research was conducted using the statute approach, legal concepts and the concept of gender. The victims of trafficking in persons are dominated by women, although it does not rule out the possibility that men can also be the victims. Women are considered as commodities that can provide benefits because they can be bought and sold to do work without requiring high education, and even provide sexual services. The perpetrators of the criminal network carry out the recruitment of potential victims by involving the householder of the potential victim, in this case the husband or father of the potential victim. This condition cannot be separated from the deep rooted patriarchal culture in the society, in which the men play a role as the decision makers in the family. Power relations play an important role in analyzing this crime of trafficking in persons. Efforts to combat trafficking in persons are carried out within the framework of a gender-equitable policy. However, the existing legal instruments have not addressed the fundamental problems of trafficking in women. Reconstruction of the legal culture of society is very important in protecting women from various forms of violence.
