About Conference

The world community is currently being hit by the coronavirus that originated in China at the end of 2019. The virus, officially known as Covid-19, has spread to all parts of the world, from Asia to Europe. Various policies have been taken by the world government, such as carrying out lockdowns, banning activities abroad, and providing disinfectant fluids to break the chain of transmission of this virus, considering that the virus vaccine is still in process.

On the other hand, many people are getting worse due to the lockdown policy. This virus's impact is especially pronounced for freelancers who do not have a regular income in the economic aspect. The switch has also hit the education and business aspects of online learning systems and workers doing their work through the home or Work From Home (WFH). From a legal perspective, the world governments has adopted a policy of assimilating and releasing prisoners, so that prisons do not become a source of coronavirus transmission. Not to mention how law enforcement agencies, such as the police, prosecutors, and courts, must rack their brains to work to provide justice for justice seekers during the Covid-19 pandemic.

During its development, various pros and cons have emerged regarding government policies during the Covid-19 pandemic. The pro parties said that the government's steps were correct, namely to protect the citizens from transmitting the coronavirus. The policy of assimilation and prisoners' release is carried out under strict conditions, which are not many if compared to the total number of prisoners throughout Indonesia. According to pro parties, conditions such as prisoners who are elderly and have served more than 2/3 of their prison terms are the right steps, considering that the coronavirus is very easily transmitted to elderly humans. Other policies, such as limiting the operating hours of economic and business centers, such as malls, coffee shops, and crowd centers, have had a positive effect on the rate of transmission of the coronavirus, although, on the one hand, this policy has made the economic turnover very slow.

On the other hand, those who oppose government policy think that the policy will not have a lasting impact. It will even make things worse. Examples include assimilation and release of prisoners. It will give people a sense of fear and threat if the released prisoner returns to a crime because there is no guarantee that the prisoner will not commit a crime again. Furthermore, limiting operating hours is considered not optimal because many community elements and shops openly ignore government policies by gathering outside houses, coffee shops and operating beyond their limits. Weak enforcement of the central and regional governments in the field also proves that the efforts that have been made are only black and white, which violates Human Rights.

Based on this, the world community, especially the academic world, needs to collaborate and innovate to protect and enforce human rights. Human rights are fundamental rights owned by every individual in the world that cannot be taken away and disturbed by any party. The challenge of protecting and enforcing human rights during the Covid-19 pandemic is a reality that must be faced together. Therefore, the Department of Law Science, Faculty of Sharia and Law, Universitas Islam Negeri Alauddin Makassar will hold an international conference called "International Conference of Human Rights (ICHR)" with the theme of Protection and Enforcement of Human Rights in the Covid-19 Pandemic Period.

This activity will be carried out on 12-13 April 2021, which takes place in the City of Makassar by online. This international conference aims to raise the name of Indonesia and the Universitas Islam Negeri Alauddin Makassar (UINAM), specifically the Faculty of Sharia and Law, and the Department of Law Science as the organizer to the international world as a center for the development of knowledge on Human Rights. This event is the first international conference held by the Department of Law Science, Faculty of Sharia and Law by inviting academics, practitioners, bureaucrats, observers, and the general public to provide ideas and ideas regarding the protection and enforcement of human rights.
