  • Parameters Influencing Citizens’ Levels of Satisfaction: Soft Indicators
           of ‘Good Governance’

    • Abstract: Previous studies highlighted the importance of soft indicators (e.g., quantitative sociological survey) influencing citizen satisfaction towards municipal service quality. Citizen satisfaction assessments have raised concerns over numerous independent parameters such as gender, age, and education on satisfaction levels toward administrative performance. It is also crucial to underline that the application of sociological survey for improving service quality is not well understood by municipal officers or scholars. To obtain substantial combined multiple indicators of service quality, it seems rationale to reconnoitre numerous parameters of citizen satisfaction and quantitatively investigate impacts of independent variables (e.g., gender, age, education) on corresponding satisfaction levels by using some advanced statistical tools. In this sociological assessment, a targeted population was constructed of Bangkok Metropolitan administration (BMA) stakeholders (n = 38,500), which are as follows:-       Bangkok residents in 50 districts under the governance of BMA-       Board committee, executive directors and general staff of 27 BMA officesThis multiple dimensional analysis sociological survey data indicates that gender, age, and education play some important roles in governing municipal citizen satisfaction levels. Overall, the knowledge of relationship between citizen satisfaction levels and independent parameters can enhance the service quality of municipal administration.

  • Socio-economic Constraints Jordanian Women Had Encountered as a Result of
           COVID-19 Pandemic, and Coping Mechanisms

    • Abstract: This research paper sheds light on what Jordanian women had to endure as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic’s effects, since the imposition of the full lock-down and shelter-in-place order in March of 2020. The paper primarily aims to identify socio-economic constraints Jordanian women encountered during this period, and to explore the coping mechanisms women had adopted. A total of 480 women had partaken in this study; who were randomly selected from different regions in Jordan.The findings suggest that women had suffered more from social constraints as opposed to economic ones, the foremost of which was directly pertinent to the outbreak. This includes increasing household chores and caregiving work, due to the long time women had to stay home, in addition to the burdens of applying health safety precautions and online learning. As for economic constraints, women had specifically suffered from declining income and increasing financial burdens in general.Statistically significant differences in favor of the lower age groups, families with more children and less monthly income, women working in the government sector, and women residing in the Badia regions have been detected.The findings also indicated that the most prominent mechanisms that helped women cope with the constraints are prayer, participation in the public debate about the pandemic, and self-sufficiency. It was also found that such coping mechanisms are more correlated to economic as opposed to social constraints.

  • Why Code-switch on WhatsApp' A Quantitative Analysis of Types and
           Influences of Code-switching

    • Abstract: This paper examines an asynchronous computer-mediated communication (CMC) between bilingual university students in Malaysia, in particular via Whatsapp by appropriating a functional approach in scrutinizing the diverse types and influences for codeswitching (CS). A quantitative methodology was employed wherein a survey was designed and administered to undergraduate students from the Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM). A dataset from a total of 90 respondents was collected from five faculties; Academy of Language Studies, Faculty of Law, Faculty of Communication and Media Studies and Faculty of Education. The yielded findings postulate that inter-sentential code-switching was the most used type of code-switching among the respondents and habitual expression is the main factor that influence them to code-switch.

  • Institutional Impact on Achieving the Sustainable Development Goal of
           Ending Poverty

    • Abstract: The role of institutions is increasingly emphasised as a cornerstone of achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). However, previous studies have not sufficiently considered the relationship between institutions and SDGs using cross-country empirical analysis. Therefore, this study examined the effects of institutions on SDG1 (end poverty) performance using a panel data set covering 111 countries for the period 2010–2019. Instrumental variable (IV) estimation (2SLS) and the three-stage least squares (3SLS) method were used to explore the direct and indirect impacts, respectively, of institutions on SDG1 performance. The institutional impact was captured using a composite index developed from individual worldwide governance indicators and SDG1 performance was evaluated with an index constructed using the SDG index database. The results showed that institutions have a highly significant direct positive relationship with SDG1 performance. Regulatory quality has the strongest influence on SDG1 performance while political stability has the lowest. Furthermore, institutions affect SDG1 indirectly via mediating factors – state policy, economic growth, and SDG2 (end hunger) performance. This study provides robust empirical evidence for enhanced regulatory quality and control of corruption creating a conducive environment for facilitating the achievement of the SDG of ending poverty, suggesting that policies aimed at fulfilling this goal should include the prerequisite of upgrading the country’s institutions.

  • Indonesian National Security Policy in Fighting Terrorism Among the Youth
           Generation

    • Abstract: At the beginning of the 21st century, Indonesia was marked by terrorist attacks that caused victims, such as the Bali Bombings in 2002. The threat and violence of terrorism cannot be separated from the influence of international terrorist organizations that attack Indonesia through targeted attacks on vulnerable individuals or groups, more specifically the youth generation. The perpetrators of terrorism have taken advantage of the technological network of the online radicalization era. The Industrial Revolution 4.0 has inspired many patterns of human interaction from domestic interactions to global interactions. This study explains various ideas about implementing national security policies in countering terrorism among the youth generation with qualitative methods using literature analysis so that several tactical steps are found to counter terrorism through critical and open education, exemplary, eradicating injustice, transcendence, and international cooperation. An important finding in this study is the importance of the joint commitment of elements of society to implement Indonesia's national security policy through actions that have small dimensions in the school and household environment and large dimensions at the national level.

  • Macro Determinants of Foreign Direct Investment in Lebanon

    • Abstract: This paper is concerned with identifying and analysing the impact of selected macroeconomic variables on foreign direct investment (FDI) in Lebanon. Toward this purpose, the analysis will be based on secondary data collected for the period standing between 1990 and 2018 to implement the Vector Auto Regression (VAR) and Error correction model (ECM) techniques. The results reveal that Gross Domestic Product (GDP), deposit interest rate and debt are correlated with FDI. While trade was found statistically an insignificant variable for FDI inflow. The findings of the study recommend that establishing and maintaining economic stability and growth will spurs foreign investments in Lebanon.

  • Gender and Age Differences in Choice of Holiday Destination: Case of
           Langkawi, Malaysia

    • Abstract: While gender and age are considered as important demographic factors in tourism segmentation, lack of attention has been given by tourism researchers. Moreover, gender and age analysis within tourism studies are still limited, particularly in the context of choice of destination. The aim of this paper is to examine the role of gender and age in determining the destination choice. Langkawi has been chosen as a location for the study due to its popularity among the local and international tourist. Survey questionnaire is used as a tool for data collection. A total of 529 Langkawi holidaymakers participated in the study. T-test and ANOVA has been employed to analyse the data. The findings indicate that gender and age both influence Langkawi being chosen as a holiday destination. Male and female consumers place different emphasis on the selection of Langkawi as a destination of choice. These findings suggest that tourism advertisers and destination promoters need to be aware of different needs and wants of both males and females. However, tourists of different ages evaluate Langkawi similarly, which marketers can use a variety of promotion packages for all age group. The study's practical implications and limitations are discussed.
