The research discusses media utilization and contents for supporting the internationalization, the consistency of internationalization policies at the macro-level (Ministry), mezzo-level (Directorate General), and micro-level (Sebelas Maret University or known as UNS), and the stakeholders' insights of the internationalization of Higher Education. The data were obtained through in-depth interviews and documentation, and a descriptive-qualitative analysis technique was used. The results showed that UNS utilized various media to support internationalization, namely visual media, auditory media, audiovisual media, and other new media. Media contents include academic information, international research collaboration, and intercultural activities. Policy consistency from macro to micro levels took place only at the activity level, whereas there is no consistency in the mission, strategies, policies, and programs. The stakeholders' insights varied from understanding internationalization entirely as a goal, strategies, activities, media, and intra-cultural dimension standardized at the world level until the internationalization dimension. The implication of this research is the need to harmonize policies at all levels of the organization. Besides, the content of the media should be adjusted to the indicators of internationalization.

On December 9, 2020, The Sleman Regional Head Election was won by the Kustini-Danang pair. The victory of Kustini (wife of Sri Purnomo, the incumbent Regent) is referred to as part of kinship politics. Kinship politics is understood as an attempt to perpetuate power, in this case, Sri Purnomo's power. Sri Purnomo itself is the Regent of Sleman who is famous for his political superiority, which is shown by winning two consecutive terms. This study aims to capture the local political phenomenon in Sleman by identifying the political contestation in the 2020 Regional Head Election from a socio-historical and some political momentum that occurred during the Sri Purnomo regime. To further explore the phenomenon of kinship politics in Sleman Regency, this study used a qualitative approach and used two main data search methods: primary data and secondary data. The results showed that Sri Purnomo has high superiority in his leadership. Sri Purnomo transformed into a local strongman with the support of some local elite networks he had built. As the local strongmen, he formed political alliances that had high loyalty based on patron-client relationships. In the end, by presenting his wife, Kustini Sri Purnomo as his successor, it shows that the politics of kinship are nothing more than an extension of the hand to continue Sri Purnomo's power.

In 2020 post-conflict regional head elections were held in Indonesia, including in North Sulawesi. Regulations concerning election explicitly state that each candidate is required to campaign and use environmentally friendly props. This study aims to analyze the perception of election organizers in North Sulawesi in implementing the 2020 election whether they have implemented an environmentally friendly concept. The research method is descriptive qualitative, with the determination of the sample is done by purposive sampling. In this case, the informant is the election organizer, the General Elections Commission (KPU), and the General Election Supervisory Agency of the Province and City Regencies in North Sulawesi. The results showed that the perception of the informants' environment was at the highest level, namely ecocentric, meaning that the concept of being environmentally friendly was an important part of election success. But this perception was not applied in the socialization material they carried out during the 2020 post-conflict regional head election in North Sulawesi. Another finding in the observation in the city of Manado, the provincial capital of all candidates, tends to carry out a campaign model that is not environmentally friendly. It concluded that applying the concept of environmentally friendly elections is still below the level of expectations. Further intervention is needed so that in the future, the elections that are carried out will also ensure that an environmentally friendly concept is implemented.

People with disabilities owned the same right to obtain employment to be civil servants. The government had created plenty of regulations to guarantee the right to obtain a job, starting from statutory regulations and various implementing regulations. However, a few problems in the scope of employment in government agencies still occur during this time, such as unachievable quotas, failure in procurement, and inequality for persons with disabilities. Moreover, it was not following the number of regulations that have been published. Hence, we were interested in analyzing the contents of the civil servant candidate recruitment policy and its implementation in 2017 through 2019 using a normative-empirical juridical approach, which was presented in a descriptive form. The Researchers examined statutory regulations and implementing regulations, supported by interview data from the stakeholders. In terms of content, the laws and regulations accommodated it quite well. Even though there were bad things, such as the Civil Servant Management regulation and technical regulations regarding the needs of employees in 2017 and 2018, that was considered discriminatory. Furthermore, Ministries and local governments have not fully followed the policies as written in the regulations. Briefly, there was an evolution of the regulations year by year; they were yet needed to improve policy content, although the policies continued to evolve for the better.

The impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, which has had a major impact on people's lives, has prompted the president and his cabinet members to respond with various policy stimuli. This study wants to see the solidity of the president's assistants in responding to President Jokowi's general policies in dealing with the Covid-19 pandemic and analyze the causes of the ineffectiveness of policies taken with an applied communication approach the policy field. By using the literature study method, this research finds that the implementation of policies made by the president's assistants is not in line with the wishes of the president as the Head of Government. This is probably due to the political power dynamics contained in the Jokowi's second term coalition members. In addition, the interests of coalition members may impact the process and decision-making of a policy. The results of this study recommend that the government strengthen the role of the structure in charge of managing and ensuring that the policies taken by the president's assistants in handling Covid-19 are in line with the president's wishes. Furthermore, it is necessary to communicate the policy to all stakeholders involved in the policy process so that the policies taken in handling Covid-19 do not represent the political interests of coalition members. In addition, to maintain the solidity of the coalition cabinet in handling Covid-19, the positions of cabinet members involved in the policy implementation process must submit to the power of the President as Head of Government.

The Indonesian e-Government index for 2020 is internationally ranked 88, up 19 points from the previous ranking of 107 in 2018. This increase results from e-Government implementing agencies and an increase in public participation and contributions from research institutions. It always contributes to e-Government issues theoretically and practically. The results of studies related to the implementation of e-Government are also needed to answer the current problems and become a reference of e-Government development following Indonesian conditions. This study explores the studies that have been carried out during the last five years using the perspective of Indonesia's e-Government Ranking (PeGI), namely the dimensions of policy, institutional, application, infrastructure, and planning. The study used a literature review method with data sources obtained on the Garuda Ristek portal BRIN-Indonesian Publication Index. The number of articles collected was 45 articles which were then grouped based on the PeGI dimension, research methods, and types of e-Government relations. The results show that the perspective of the dimensions of the Indonesian e-Government Ranking can be a reference to see a picture of the conditions of e-Government implementation and the influencing factors. Furthermore, studies related to e-government issues can provide input information and recommendations for solutions to e-Government administrators. Therefore, it is necessary to increase the number of studies on e-Government in Indonesia supported by the government and related institutions to improve the quality of Indonesian e-Government.
