The reason is, Mexico is a source of fulfilling the needs of illegal narcotics by the United States which causes many cases of murder and violence that occur in Mexico and the United States. This is also very detrimental to the country, thus making Mexico and the United States decide to establish bilateral cooperation in an effort to resolve the problem of the spread of this drug. This research was made to find out what efforts and steps were taken by Mexico in eradicating drug cartels. This study uses a descriptive qualitative method, in which data is obtained from the results of literature studies through journals, books, websites and so on. The results obtained will explain how successful the efforts of bilateral cooperation between Mexico and the United States are to eradicate&nbsp;drug&nbsp;cartels.</em></p> <p><strong><em>Keywords</em></strong><strong><em>—</em></strong> <em>Drugs, Drug Cartels, Mexico, United States</em></p> Muhammad Idris, Benita L Togatorop ##submission.copyrightStatement## Mon, 30 Oct 2023 00:00:00 +0700 Navigating The Storm: ASEAN's Strategy Amidst Two Major Powers <p><em>This study aims to analyze ASEAN's stance and approach, particularly in managing confrontational politics amidst major power competition, this article will also demonstrate ASEAN's attitudes and policies in navigating confrontational politics, including how ASEAN leverages its regional community norms to respond to such competition. Through this exploration, the author seeks to delve into the role and theoretical implications of ASEAN as a regional actor grappling with the management of political competition in the rapidly evolving East Asian and Indo-Pacific regionalism. The author used an impartial enmeshment concept and a descriptive qualitative method. The results showed that the intense geostrategic competition between China and the United States has placed ASEAN in a dilemma. ASEAN strives to maintain its centrality in the region by fostering fair, impartial, and neutral cooperation relationships. ASEAN bases its approach on the norms and principles of the organization, such as transparency, openness, inclusivity, good conflict management, and the importance of sovereignty and non-intervention (ASEAN Way). The ASEAN Outlook on the Indo-Pacific (AOIP) is one policy that reflects ASEAN's efforts to build a new framework of cooperation based on its own rule in the region. However, this Southeast Asia organization faces several challenges that can threaten its position.</em></p> <p><strong><em>Keywords—</em></strong><em> ASEAN, Indo-Pacific, Impartial, Enmeshment, Geostrategies</em></p> Galuh Anissa Sekar Ayu ##submission.copyrightStatement## Mon, 30 Oct 2023 00:00:00 +0700 Kerja Sama Korea Selatan-Indonesia dalam Akselerasi Mobil Listrik di Indonesia <p><em>Research has an urgency to analyze the implementation of cooperation between South Korea and Indonesia in accelerating electric cars in Indonesia in 2019-2021.

This article will use the theories of International Cooperation, International Development, and Dependencies. Issues will be discussed through qualitative research methods and analysis of secondary data sources. In overcoming this issue, APEC carried out the continuation of the plan of APEC Putrajaya Vision 2040, Experience Exchange, and the Belt Road Initiative. The cooperation that was carried out resulted in assistance in facilitating economic cooperation and regional integration. Even so, the cooperation that was actually carried out was planned even before the COVID-19 pandemic and was only carried out more actively to overcome the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic that was present.</em></p> <p><strong><em>Keywords— </em></strong><em>APEC, Infrastructure inequality, International development</em></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Naufal Hilmi Nugroho, Shafira Aulia, Ridlo Bayu Alam Dewantoro, Deasy Silvya Sari, R Dudy Heryadi ##submission.copyrightStatement## Mon, 30 Oct 2023 00:00:00 +0700 Peran Agama Kristen dalam Hubungan Internasional <p><em>Although religion has never been absent from international relations, since the Iranian Revolution, the end of the Cold War, and the events of 9/11, the international community has renewed interest. Questions centered on the role of religion in peace and conflict, the compatibility of religious laws and norms with different government systems, and the influence of religious actors on various issues. Reliance on Enlightenment assumptions, which associated "religion" with the irrational, magical, or emotional, led many to regard religion as inappropriate for the public sphere and a key factor in causing conflict. On the other hand, the same assumptions lead to the association of the "secular" with reason, proper forms of government, and peace. Some scholars challenge such a dichotomous framework. Scholars who wish to avoid broad generalizations and problematic assumptions about religion must move beyond Enlightenment assumptions and approaches that treat diverse religious communities, actions, and ideas as inherently “good” or “problematic.” To do so, scholars must reflexively engage with religion, paying attention to their ontological assumptions and the consequences of those assumptions for religious and political analysis. In addition, scholars must place the practices, principles, and identities of individuals and religious communities within a broader historical and geographical context to understand the important factors that inform their ethical framework. There are several approaches concerned with interpretation, practice, and ethics, including neo-Weberianism, positive ethics, securitization theory, and the relational dialogical approach. These approaches provide alternatives to essential ideas about religion and explain why and how religious practitioners choose some possible actions over others.</em></p> <p><strong><em>Keywords</em></strong><strong><em>—</em></strong><em>Religion, Secularism, International Relations, Ethics, World Politics</em></p> Neni Gusti Endang Farasi, Manahan Zulkifli Nainggolan, Ribka Zulkifli Sijabat ##submission.copyrightStatement## Mon, 30 Oct 2023 00:00:00 +0700 Kesepakatan Nuklir Iran 14 Juli 2015 Sebagai Model Perundingan Minilateral yang Efektif Meredam Dinamika Politik dan Keamanan Kawasan <p><em>Minilateralism is a concept of international relations that involves a small group of countries collaborating to solve problems or achieve common goals. In practice, minilateralism does have weaknesses. One risk is that this can be exclusionary and exacerbate power imbalances, potentially prioritizing short-term interests over long-term goals. Nevertheless, the benefits of minilateralism outweigh its drawbacks. Where minilateralism is a smarter and more targeted approach, namely bringing in the small number of countries needed to be able to have the greatest impact in resolving a particular problem. This is the magic number for minilateralism, which of course will vary greatly, depending on the problem. In the case of the Iran Nuclear Agreement of 14 July 2014, the concept of minilateralism showed its magic. Where tensions that have lasted for more than four decades between the United States and its allies and Iran have succeeded in achieving common interests to produce an optimal agreement.</em></p> <p><strong><em>Keywords</em></strong><em>—</em><em>Constructivism, Common Interest, Iran Nuclear Deal 14 July 2014, Minilateralism, Multilateralism</em></p> Wim Tohari Danieladi ##submission.copyrightStatement## Mon, 30 Oct 2023 00:00:00 +0700
