Sentris is published twice a year (March-May and October-December), managed and published by KSMPMI (Kelompok Studi Mahasiswa Pengkaji Masalah Internasional) under the supervision of Jurnal Ilmiah Hubungan Internasional and International Relations Department, Parahyangan Catholic University. The word “Sentris” itself means “center”, with the hope that “Sentris” can be an independent center, especially for students who want to distribute and develop their ability in academic writing.</p> <p>Sentris can be a credible literature reference for students especially in the International Relations field since it mostly focuses on International Relations issues. The writings published by Sentris are thoroughly blind reviewed by experts and academicians in respective areas such as <strong>International Politics and Security; International Politics and Economy; International Organizations and Regime; and Politics, Media, and Transnational Society</strong>.Thereupon, articles that successfully passed the reviewing process will be published online through the Open Journal System which can be accessed through Sentris website.</p> <p>Our expectation is not only to give our finest to International Relations students and academicians, but also to the general society. Concisely, based on <strong>“by students, from students, and for students”</strong>, we always strive to be able to deliver our best effort through Sentris. We hope that Sentris can be adequately accepted and influence the heart of the readers.</p> </div> </div> <div style="text-align: justify;"> <div style="text-align: justify;"> </div> <table class="data" width="100%" bgcolor="#D7D7D7"> <tbody> <tr valign="top"> <td width="30%"><strong>Journal title</strong></td> <td width="70%"><strong>Sentris</strong></td> </tr> <tr valign="top"> <td width="30%"><strong>Frequency</strong></td> <td width="70%">bianually (March-May and October December)</td> </tr> <tr valign="top"> <td width="30%"><strong>Prefix DOI</strong></td> <td width="70%"><strong>10.25693</strong> <a href="https://search.crossref.org/?from_ui=&amp;q=2746-3826" target="_blank" rel="noopener"><img src="https://i.ibb.co/T4xZdG6/crossref3.png" alt="crossref3" border="0" /></a></td> </tr> <tr valign="top"> <td width="30%"><strong>Online ISSN</strong></td> <td width="70%"><a href="https://issn.brin.go.id/terbit/detail/1598624467" target="_blank" rel="noopener">2746-3826</a></td> </tr> <tr valign="top"> <td width="30%"><strong>Print ISSN</strong></td> <td width="70%"><a href="https://issn.brin.go.id/terbit/detail/1180434752" target="_blank" rel="noopener">0216-5031</a></td> </tr> <tr valign="top"> <td width="30%"><strong>Editor In Chief</strong></td> <td width="70%"><strong>Putu Agung Nara Indra Prima Satya</strong> [<a href="https://www.scopus.com/authid/detail.uri?authorId=57437049500" target="_blank" rel="noopener"><img src="https://image.ibb.co/i6QzrJ/Scopus_type_logo.jpg" alt="Scopus_type_logo" border="0" /></a><a>]</a></td> </tr> <tr valign="top"> <td width="30%"><strong>Publisher</strong></td> <td width="70%">Universitas Katolik Parahyangan</td> </tr> <tr valign="top"> <td width="30%"><strong>Citation analysis</strong></td> <td width="70%"><a href="https://www.scopus.com/results/results.uri?sort=plf-f&amp;src=dm&amp;st1=Sentris&amp;sid=8e4f1db88dbd4c743788ce0e28593de7&amp;sot=b&amp;sdt=cl&amp;sl=22&amp;s=TITLE-ABS-KEY%28Sentris%29&amp;origin=resultslist&amp;editSaveSearch=&amp;sessionSearchId=8e4f1db88dbd4c743788ce0e28593de7&amp;limit=10&amp;cluster=scoexactsrctitle%2C%22Jurnal+Sentris%22%2Ct%2C%22J+Sentris%22%2Ct" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Scopus</a>,<a title="gsprofile" href="https://scholar.google.com/citations?user=ifTdtG4AAAAJ&amp;hl=en" target="_blank" rel="noopener"> Google Scholar</a>, <a title="Dimensions" href="https://app.dimensions.ai/discover/publication?search_mode=content&amp;and_facet_source_title=jour.1392810" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Dimensions,</a></td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <p><strong>Registration and login are required to submit items online and to check the status of current submissions.</strong></p> <p>Already have a Username/Password?</p> <p><a href="https://journal.unpar.ac.id/index.php/Sentris/login"><strong>GO TO LOGIN</strong></a></p> <p>Not a user?

By using the Smart Power concept, which uses military power and diplomacy to achieve goals on the international stage, it is known as "Smart power". We examine how Russia has become more dominant in the military, economic and energy sectors over the past 20 years. However, Russia's influence is not as great as expected despite progress. Russia’s strong military capabilities could neither create fear of the enemy nor form friendship as it should. In addition, this country's economy does not get the full benefits of alliances with other countries. Furthermore, Russia finds it difficultto build trust with other countries because Russia tendsto use violence ratherthan discussions disguised in diplomacy. This analysis reveals a complex picture of Russia's future, highlighting the need to bridge the gap between hard and soft power in order to have a more unified and influential presence in the international stage.</p> <p>Keywords: Russia, Hard Power, Soft Power, Military, Economy, Diplomacy</p> Najmi Sungkar, Wishnu Avianto, Idil Syawfi Copyright (c) 2024 https://journal.unpar.ac.id/index.php/Sentris/article/view/7635 Thu, 06 Jun 2024 00:00:00 +0700 Penerapan Model State Capitalism sebagai Strategi Pembangunan Ekonomi Singapura https://journal.unpar.ac.id/index.php/Sentris/article/view/7621 <p><em>Since its independence, Singapore has transformed from a developing country into one of the most economically developed ones by implementing state capitalism.

With its distinctive dance, music, fashion, and fan culture, K-Pop has shaped Indonesia's younger generation and allowed for a shift in cultural preferences and ways of thinking. The purpose of this research is to examine how K-Pop has influenced Indonesian identities and viewpoints. This study clarifies how Indonesians' perceptions of music, fashion, and other popular culture have been impacted by K-Pop's widespread appeal. The diversity of music and fashion styles in Indonesia is also enhanced and broadened by the influence of K-Pop. But there has also been some discussion over how K-Pop has influenced Indonesian identity. According to certain viewpoints, K-Pop's influence may change local preferences and threaten Indonesia's cultural identity. On the other hand, some perspectives see K-Pop's influence as a type of cultural globalization that can deepen and expand knowledge and appreciation of South Korean culture.</p> <p>Keyword: K-Pop, Perspectives and Identities, Culture</p> <p> </p> <p> </p> Deviana Gloria Masada Copyright (c) 2024 https://journal.unpar.ac.id/index.php/Sentris/article/view/7633 Thu, 06 Jun 2024 00:00:00 +0700 China on Preserving Energy Resilience: An Analysis of China’s Carbon Market System https://journal.unpar.ac.id/index.php/Sentris/article/view/7802 <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The urgency of energy transition continuously presents itself in various conditions and situations. Within this article, the background used to visualize the problem is of how the energy transition could be achieved whilst still preserving energy resilience. The way to do so is through the implementation of an accurate and effective carbon market system. China, as one of the biggest contributors of energy and carbon emissions, has the urgency to implement said system. This article tries to analyze using the method of qualitative research through the carbon market effectivity—particularly within China's Carbon Market System—that is purposefully one of the most significant efforts to urge energy transition, the issues that are disruptive and harmful towards the projection of results are analyzed. This article seeks to find the core problem and reasonings behind the ineffectiveness of China’s carbon market.</span></p> <p><strong>Keywords: </strong><span style="font-weight: 400;">Energy transition, energy resilience, carbon market, China, foreign affairs</span></p> Maurichio Dewanto, Jennye Maria Paule Awuy Copyright (c) 2024 https://journal.unpar.ac.id/index.php/Sentris/article/view/7802 Thu, 06 Jun 2024 00:00:00 +0700 (De)Constructing Ideas of Security: Discovering an Alternative to the European Union External Border Control https://journal.unpar.ac.id/index.php/Sentris/article/view/7592 <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The 'immigration crisis' of 2015, as well as the increasing reluctance of European Union (EU) countries, such as Poland to accept asylum seekers, has been a prominent topic of discussion in recent years. Numerous migrants were compelled to undertake a perilous expedition and perish at the threshold of Europe in a bid to flee hazardous conflicts in their countries of origin. This issue has raised doubts about the EU's commitment to maintaining its foundational humanitarian principles, as outlined in Article 2 of the Treaty on European Union. By employing a qualitative research methodology and (Just) Securitisation Theory–which falls under the paradigm of social constructivism–as an analytical tool, the author focuses on the legal aspect and the practical methods safeguarding external borders of the EU, namely the European Union Naval Force Mediterranean (EUNAVFOR MED), as a response to the increase of migration. Given this basis, this study concurs that: 1) the EU strategy to migration management has not adopted a comprehensive security approach, which results in the neglection of the safety of asylum seekers; 2) EU law instruments regarding migration curtails the free movement of people, and thus is discriminatory towards asylum seekers; 3) EUNAVFOR MED is insufficient in ensuring the security of migrants, and yet its securitising moves are disproportionate to the threat in the region. </span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Keywords: European Union, Border Control, Securitisation, Just Securitisation Theory, EUNAVFOR MED</span></p> Muhammad Wijaya Nur Shiddiq Copyright (c) 2024 https://journal.unpar.ac.id/index.php/Sentris/article/view/7592 Thu, 06 Jun 2024 00:00:00 +0700 Reevaluating the Effectiveness of Peacekeeping and SDG 16 in Africa: Challenges in Combating Ethnic Conflict https://journal.unpar.ac.id/index.php/Sentris/article/view/7624 <p>After almost 10 years into the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the African continent remains left behind in many points of the SDG, including SDG 16 “Peace, Justice, and Strong Institution”. Many of the world’s current issues of armed conflict and territorial disputes still reside in the continent. While many new factors of armed conflict surfaced throughout the decade, a dominant issue remains a big hurdle in bringing peace to Africa, ethnic conflict. In order to solve ethnic conflicts, international efforts of peacekeeping become one of the most used strategies in the hopes to combat these issues. As of 2023, 6 out of the 12 ongoing global United Nations peacekeeping operations still reside in Africa. However, the issue of ethnic conflict remains prevalent and peacekeeping seems to be ineffective in de-escalating it. Using peacekeeping as third-party mediation theory by A.B. Fetherston, this article identifies that whilst UN Peacekeeping is relatively successful in conflict control, it still struggles with resolution processes which prevents long-term peace and resolution to take place. This article also identifies the lack of UN Peacekeeping capability in addressing local conflicts and the complexities of ethnic based-conflict, as well biases in peacekeeping operations contribute to effectiveness. This article also urges the need for greater communication between UN Peacekeeping and local actors, and regional bodies, as well as a more comprehensive training for peacekeeping in handling ethnic conflict.</p> <p>Key Words: ethnic conflict, SDG 16, peacekeeping, Africa</p> Emanuela Nandin Abhigita Copyright (c) 2024 https://journal.unpar.ac.id/index.php/Sentris/article/view/7624 Thu, 06 Jun 2024 00:00:00 +0700
