The Human Rights City Award: Sociolegal Study

Kurnia Indawati

Abstract

To motivate the cities in implementing the fulfillment of human rights for the community, the Directorate General of Human Right , the Ministry of Justice and Human Rights Republic of Indonesia has launched the Program Kabupaten / Kota Peduli HAM (Human Right Cities Award). The criteria for assessment of cities for human rights have been established in the Minister of Law and Human Rights Regulation covering 7 (seven) basic rights groups with 83 (eighty three) indicators . With the sociolegal method, this study analyzes the indicators in the criteria of Human Right Cities . From extracting data shows that each indicators is not in accordance with the principles of international human rights law. The indicators of human rights cities also do not contain the principle of interdependence and indivisibility where there is only the fulfillment of socio-economic rights without being offset by the fulfillment of civil rights politics . As a result, the factual awards for Human Rights Cities do not guarantee an increase in the fulfillment of human rights for the community, as proven by the abundance of human rights violations in some areas with the title of Human Rights Cities which has not been resolved yet.
