Examining the Relationships between Corruption Incidence, Indebtedness, and Poverty from A Global and Regional Perspective Muyanja Ssenyonga Artikel ini mencoba melihat hubungan antara korupsi, hutang, dan kemiskinan berdasarkan data subregional dan global. Dengan menggunakan analisis korelasi, ditemukan adanya korelasi negative yang signifikan dan kuat antara korupsi dan prevalensi kemiskinan. Tingkat korupsi suatu Negara, seperti yang dinyatakan dalam Corruption Perception Index (CPI), berkaitan dengan kesejahteraan sosial negara itu yang diwakili oleh Human Development Index. Negara berkembang yang miskin cenderung lebih tinggi tingkat korupsinya dibandingkan dengan negara industri yang kaya. Berdasarkan data Asia Pasifik, jelas tampak hubungan yang negatif antara kemiskinan dengan korupsi. Korelasi yang negatif ini juga tampak dalam hubungan antara korupsi dengan pertumbuhan ekonomi. Tingkat hutang luar negeri suatu negara menunjukkan hubungan yang positif dengan tingkat kemiskinan, sedangkan tingkat hutang berkorelasi negatif dengan korupsi. Namun, investasi langsung pihak asing akan mengurangi kemiskinan karena kedua variabel itu berkorelasi negatif. Pemberantasan korupsi seharusnya mempertinggi pertumbuhan ekonomi dan meningkatkan

efektivitas penggunaan hutang luar negeri, yang akhirnya dapat mengurangi tingkat kemiskinan. Kata kunci: korupsi, investasi, kemiskinan, Human Development Index

Sunat Perempuan: Cermin Bangunan Sosial Seksualitas Masyarakat Yogyakarta dan Madura Basilica Dyah Putranti The objective of the study is to comprehend how the practice of Female Genital Cutting (FGC) or ‘sunat perempuan’ in local term, reflects a social construction of sexuality in Indonesia society, and how it relates to sexual and reproductive health. The study was conducted during 2002 in Yogyakarta and Madura, considering that both areas have distinct sociocultural contexts. The study reveals that FGC, as MGC, is socially meant ‘to Islamize’ member of society. The male religious leaders’ dominance and rigid interpretations of Islamic holy books may be conducive for male-biased sexual behaviors and harmful procedures of FGC among Madurese. Among Javanese, by contrast, FGC is known as a part of court tradition, to be connected with a puberty rite which articulates symbolic actions. As opened social discourse is more accepted among Javanese, FGC is easily forgotten. Nonetheless, the meaning of FGC as a puberty rite has served as a basis for gender divisions among Javanese todays. Keywords: female genital cutting, Islamize, sexuality, gender
