A Study on Adults in Malawi 2024-05-26T12:18:20+00:00 Fred Sato Jonghwi Park <div><em><span lang="EN-US">The study examined the general understanding of climate change among Malawian adults (n=601) and its impact on their climate-related actions. Leveraging the knowledge-attitude-behavior theory, it assessed their awareness, readiness to act, and actual practices against climate change. The results showed that 40 percent of participants have a high awareness of climate change, with varied levels of awareness observed across the spectrum. Educational attainment (p=.000) emerged as the sole significant predictor of climate change awareness. Although 68 percent of respondents showed a willingness to act, the study found that some actions are more prevalent than others. The research identified a statistically significant relationship between climate change awareness and action (R=0.187, p&lt;.001). These findings contribute to the ongoing discussion on the role of climate change awareness and its influence on action, offering valuable perspectives for policymakers in developing climate change awareness programs and education.</span></em></div> 2024-06-28T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2024 Fred Sato, Jonghwi Park Politicization of Football and International Relations in Europe (Case Study: Stances of Football Institutions in Europe in the Conflict of Russia-Ukraine) 2024-06-03T02:18:46+00:00 Yohanes Ivan Adi Kristianto Muhammad Fachrie Eki Melina Widanti Wijoseno Cahyo Atmojo <div><em><span lang="EN-US">Football, one of the most popular sports in the world, has never been separated from political aspects. In Europe, at least since the World War, football has been used by governments as a propaganda tool. At other times, football is the first to initiate entry into the world of politics, such as UEFA's decision to involve football clubs and the national team of Turkey in competing with European football clubs and national teams. Recently, the security conflict between Russia and Ukraine has given rise to political support by several football confederations in Europe. This research aims to identify the chain of politicization that occurs between the Russia-Ukraine conflict and the political attitudes of football confederations in Europe, using issue linkage theory. Next, this research, using European solidarity theory at the macro level, analyzes the implications of this chain of politicization for European integration. The research method applied in this research is basic research using secondary data. This research finds that on the issue of the Russia-Ukraine security conflict, this issue controls the dynamics of football politics in Europe. Meanwhile, European solidarity occurs at the institutional level with a political orientation.</span></em></div> 2024-06-28T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2024 Yohanes Ivan Adi Kristianto, Muhammad Fachrie, Eki Melina Widanti, Wijoseno Cahyo Atmojo Archiving Food Heritage Towards Championing Food Security: A Case Study of Lokalpedia 2024-05-28T02:26:39+00:00 Allan Raymundo Jr. <div><em><span lang="EN-US">Key anthropologists have previously looked into the potential of using “geographical indications” to protect localities and their products, but little has been said about the role food heritage could play in championing food security. This paper looks into the open access archive of local and endemic food stuff, Lokalpedia, that is at the forefront of championing ingredients endemic to the Philippines and advocating for their preservation, and, in extension, the livelihood of farmers, fisherfolk, and market vendors. Through social media content analysis and literature review, this paper explores and builds the case for the potential of archiving and understanding local and traditional food ingredients and local produce toward a more holistic and meaningful approach to ameliorating food insecurity. By rendering these local food products visible in both the local and global arena, it attunes communities to foodstuff available in their localities and entices culture-savvy consumers to support local food producers.</span></em></div> 2024-06-28T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2024 Allan Raymundo Jr. Implementation of the Country Strategic Plan (CSP) by the World Food Program (WFP) for Pakistan in 2018 – 2022: Management Approach-Based Analysis 2024-04-22T01:03:17+00:00 Devinta Permata Anggraeni Resa Rasyidah <div><em><span lang="EN-ID">This research aims to </span><span lang="IN">determine how the </span><span lang="EN-ID">World Food Program (WFP)</span> <span lang="EN-ID">implements the realization of food security in Pakistan.

Arsy Ash Shiddiqy <p><em>This research aims to discuss about analysis of United States foreign policy in Afghanistan by looking at case studies of the victory of the Taliban group controlling Afghanistan in 2021. Foreign policy is a unit of analysis in international relations that is related to the national political system. This strategy carried out in foreign policy lasts if the State interacts in the form of relations with the international community in making decisions to achieve its national goals. In making broad country decisions, there is a theory expressed by Richard Snyder which says there are internal factors and external factors that influence a country in determining foreign policy. In the case of the Taliban's victory over Afghanistan in 2021, the United States' policy in responding to the conflict explained the internal and external factors that influence each other. Internal factors are influenced by the structure and social behavior of the State, where this is influenced by the ideology of the State, existing government institutions in the State, where this is influenced by the ideology of the State, existing government institutions in the State, the characteristics contained in national organizational institutions and the role of social groups in influencing decision making which are internal factors. The existence of internal and external factors then provides the results of the decision-making process that cannot be separated from action in decision-making. The conclusion, internal factors and external factors that influence the direction of the United States foreign policy in dealing with cases of conflict in Afghanistan have an impact on the victory of the Taliban group in controlling Afghanistan in 2021.</em></p> 2024-06-28T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2024 Rio Sundari, Agung Wicaksono, Fanesa Angeli, Rendi Prayuda, M.
