Vol. 4 No. 1 (2017): Constitutional Issues and Indigenous Rights
Brawijaya Law Journal has once again published its next edition. As we know that Brawijaya Law Journal was established to publish academic papers with various aspects in the field of law, both private n public, ranging from constitutional law to international law.Â
Following the success of its last year edition, with a transnational perspective, on its first edition of year 2017, the theme of the journal is â€œConstitutional Issues and Indigenous Rightsâ€. A constitution is a set of fundamental principles or established precedent according to which a state is governed. It is a norm of political and legal system codified as a written document, which includes the formation of the structure, procedures, powers and obligations of state government in general. One of the functions of the constitution is to protect human rights, including the indigenous rights as well as freedom of religion.
This issue can be seen through any aspects. This current edition comprises of seven papers concerning the constitutional rights against indigenous people in freedom of religion and belief, and also the legal implication of the legal void related to interfaith marriages. It follows by a paper analyzing the constitutional principles concerning treaty making power and also the state liability for violation of its constitutional rights against indigenous people. There is also a analysis from an Islamic economy perspective, the right to life under the ECHR, to the model regulation of data privacy.
