In-Progress Workshop TF Project: Peneliti ICAIOS Diseminasi Hasil Field Work

TF

Peneliti ICAIOS mendiskusikan temuan lapangan atas tujuh studi kasus di enam kabupaten di Provinsi Aceh, Aceh Besar, Banda Aceh, Aceh Jaya, Aceh Barat, Aceh Tengah, dan Aceh Utara. Kegiatan field work ini merupakan bagian dari Project Toyota Foundation, yang bertujuan mengidentifikasi berbagai proses pembangunan dan keberlanjutan konsensus dalam penyelesaian berbagai isu/konflik lingkungan yang ada di Aceh.
Studi kasus project ini meliputi, kasus PT LSI vs komunitas di Lhoknga; Kasus Perusahaan Kayu vs Masyarakat di Lamteuba; kasus nelayan vs nelayan di Peukan Bada, Aceh Besar; kasus PT Botswa vs masyarakat di Krueng Sabee, Aceh Jaya; kasus nelayan vs nelayan di Meulaboh; kasus peternak vs pemilik kebun di Uber-Uber, Aceh Tengah; dan kasus PT Pulp and Paper vs masyarakat di Nisam, Aceh Utara,
Workshop ini difasilitasi langsung oleh Prof. Arskal Salim dari University of Western Australia (UWA) dan Dr. Saiful Mahdi, M.Sc (ICAIOS).
Output lanjutan dari temuan lapangan ini adalah penyusunan policy brief dari proses consensus building tersebut yang diharapkan dapat menjadi lesson learnt bagi kasus serupa di wilayah atau negara lain.

Indoor Tour Dutch Heritage bersama ICAIOS

dutchInternational Centre for Aceh and Indian Ocean Studies (ICAIOS) gelar Diskusi Publik dengan tema ‘Indoor Tour Dutch Heritage” yang dilaksanakan Jumat sore (9.5.2014). Tur yang dilakukan lain dari biasanya ini (di dalam ruangan) telah membawa seluruh peserta diskusi seakan dikembalikan pada zaman kolonial Belanda. 

Indoor Tour ini dipandu langsung dengan narasumber Anton Stolwijk (MA Jurnalisme dan Kolonial Belanda Sastra - Universitas Leiden, Cape Town University, Indiana University) dan Dr. Annemarie Samuels (University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands). 

Anton yang dibantu untuk translasi oleh Annemarie Samuel, memperkenalkan tujuh situs bersejarah masa Kolonial yang sudah terpilih yang akan dimasukkan di dalam aplikasi tur audio yang sedang dirangcangnya. Situs sejarah kolonial ini merupakan infrastruktur yang sangat baik untuk menarik pengunjung domestik dan internasional dan menunjukkan minat sejarah kolonial di Aceh. Situs yang diperkenalkan termasuk bangunan Belanda yang berada di dekat Putroe Phang, Neusoeh Barrack (Barak yang berada di Neusu), Telephone Office yang letaknya berdekatan dengan Mesjid Raya Baiturrahman, Kratonlaan (Keraton yang berada dekat dengan Pendopo), Military Hospital (bangunan yang berada di Kuta Alam), Water Pump (berada di dekat RS.KESDAM), dan Kerkhof.
Tur ini akan tersedia sebagai aplikasi di smartphone Android secara gratis yang diperkaya dengan ilustrasi dan terdapat dalam pilihan Bahasa Indonesia, Belanda dan Inggris. (np)

Background
Qualitative research requires in-depth analysis on participants’ experience. This is because Qualitative researchers believe that experience is valid knowledge, through which they are able to understand their participants. To explore participants’ experience, Qualitative researchers conduct semi-structured interviews. The findings from interview are regarded as main data for a certain research. However, these findings should be transcribed in verbatim form to enable researchers analyze these interview data. Only through transcript, are the researchers able to review and analyze the data.

The research on the School Governance, which is conducted by the ICAIOS team in cooperation with the University of Auckland, requires intensive and prolonged exploration on participants’ ways of thinking and decision-making through semi-structured in depth interviews, and thus verbatim transcription is needed.
