FORUM LINTAS GENERASI

“Announcement of the First Congress and the
Manifesto of Youth and Indonesia Across-Generation”

The Forum Lintas Generasi will hold its first Congress in Depok, West Java, Indonesia, November, 8 – November, 10, 2006, with the theme “Moral & Cultural Aspects; Law, Power, Economics, & Politics: Heroes and Young People Role’s in this Democratic era. The Congress will be hosted jointly by the Forum Lintas Generasi, Student’s Executive Board of Law Faculty of University of Indonesia, Faculty of Law and the Centre for Women and Gender’s Studies, University of Indonesia.

Call for Papers and Paper Organizers

The Congress will address a number of related themes and issues pertaining to Heroes and Young People Role’s in this Democratic era, especially in the context of the relations between Moral & Cultural Aspects; Law, Power, Economics, & Politics processes which affect the every era of country as they pursue their various activities.

While the congress symposia are comparative in nature and ask for papers from all over the world, a major focus will be on issues particularly relevant to South and Southeast Asia, especially Indonesia. Here we are taking the papers from the International School scholar and International Organization Representative in Jakarta. In the historical development and contemporary situation in these regions, the Moral & Cultural landscapes are undergoing rapid change, and it has a different means in every place. Local populations, non-governmental and governmental agencies alike are faced with immense challenges posed by the plurality and differences point of view in Moral and Cultural means. Besides these issues, Heroes and Young People Role’s also play an important role in the organization and legitimating of governance, of social, political and economic relationships, and the administration of justice. Like meaning of heroes in differences of people point of view, in the context of globalisation, international and transnational rules and conventions as well as international actors, governmental and non-governmental organisations increasingly add to the earlier forms of complexity.

The Congress will attract participants from all over the world including people from various academic backgrounds, such as law, anthropology, sociology, development studies and gender studies as well as practitioners (social workers, NGO members, dispute mediators, legal advocates, planners, state officials, political activists, students or even squalid and homeless getting through their point of view) who in their work are confronted with these issues.

The Congress will address a number of issues that will form the core themes of the symposia and panels. The following outline is in the preparatory stages. The symposia and panels will be more closely focused in cooperation with panel organizers and the local organizing committee. Moreover, interested colleagues are invited to suggest additional proposals for panels, and proposals by participants from less developed countries as well as joint panels organized by northern and southern scholars, International School scholars and also International Organization Representative in Jakarta are very welcome.

Bahasa Indonesia is the official language of Indonesia. English is quite understood by most of Indonesian citizen. On this Congress, the stages will be asking by using English or Indonesia language. The participants may have either one of these language.

People who are interested in organising panels, either the ones listed below or new ones, are invited to notify the local organising committee latest by1st October, 2006.
