Welcome To ICILS 2021

The most important thing from an educational institution is how it can participate in educating the community. As an educational institution which in fact is a place to exchange ideas, it is appropriate that an educational institution can provide an intellectual enrichment to society. Faculty of Law Universitas Negeri Semarang carried out this order very well. The Faculty of Law Universitas Negeri Semarang proved this by holding ICILS (International Conference of Indonesian Legal Studies).

ICILS is an international conference organized by the Faculty of Law Universitas Negeri Semarang. The international conference is an annual agenda of Faculty of Law Universitas Negeri Semarang. Every year ICILS always presents a different theme and according to the current issue. The year 2021 will be the 4th event of ICILS.

In line with the vision and mission as a university with international reputation, the Faculty of Law Universitas Negeri Semarang with all humility will hold the 4th ICILS in 2021 with the theme “The re-establishment of law, economics, and health systems after covid-19 pandemic”.


During the initial time of the COVID-19 crisis, many countries rushed to provide unprecedented emergency support levels to keep households and companies afloat, protect jobs and incomes and prevent the economy from collapsing. In the coming months, as the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic subsides and some countries increasingly turn to re-opening their economies, policymakers will need to maintain this agility, modifying and adjusting the composition and characteristics of support packages, targeting support where it is needed most, and encouraging a return to work where possible. While doing that, it will be essential to start building back better to address the deep-rooted labor market fragilities and structural inequalities that the pandemic has exposed.

COVID-19 has governments at all levels operating in a context of radical uncertainty. The worldwide impact of the COVID-19 crisis is highly heterogeneous, with significant implications for crisis management and policy responses. This paper takes an in-depth look at the territorial impact of the COVID-19 crisis in its different dimensions: health, economic, fiscal, social, and Law. It provides examples of multi-regional governments’ responses to help mitigate the crisis’s territorial effects and offers ten takeaways on managing COVID-19’s territorial impact. Finally, the paper offers a forward looking perspective forward-looking crisis’ implications for multi-level. governance and points for policymakers to consider as they build resilient regions.

The impact of the COVID-19 crisis and related policy responses (e.g., public health measures, lockdowns, emergency economic and social measures) on subnational government finance is significant. The COVID-19 health crisis has turned into a global economic crisis, putting at risk the health, jobs, and incomes of millions of people worldwide. The strict containment measures adopted by many countries first half of 2020 to flatten the contagion rise put a powerful brake on most economic and social activities.

The coronavirus disease continues to spread across the world following a trajectory that is difficult to predict. The pandemic has exposed deep-rooted labor market fragilities and structural inequalities, with low-paid work, young people, women, ethnic minorities, the self-employed, and informal and fixed-term workers among the hardest hit by the crisis. With the fight against COVID-19 still to be won and many countries facing a resurgence of the virus, it has become commonplace that what awaits us is a “new normal” in the way society is organized and how we will work. However, now is the time to look more closely at this new normal and start building a future of work safer, fairer, greener, and more effective in cushioning the consequences of future crises on jobs and incomes. Many of the challenges highlighted in the ILO’s Centenary Declaration for the Future of Work (ILO, 2019) and the OECD’s Transition Agenda for a Future that Works for All (OECD, 2019) are even more relevant in a post-COVID-19 world.

“Building back better” calls for increased policy coherence, in particular between economic, employment, and social policies, and a whole-of-government approach. It also calls for a whole-of-society approach that involves all stakeholders and leads to identifying and implementing country-specific policy packages. All parts of society need to contribute to this effort with a sense of shared responsibility. In this respect, social dialogue and collective bargaining can play a crucial role. Building back better also requires that support reaches those most in need and that improving the most disadvantaged and vulnerable groups in the labor market receives the highest attention to avoid a further rise in inequalities. Some general policy orientations can be identified as part of this approach to building back better to promote inclusiveness and improve resilience to future global shocks. Their concrete implementation will have to be tailored at the country and, sometimes, local and sectoral levels to account for each specific situation and national institutional settings and circumstances.

Based on the resume, this conference will be inviting five main speakers and one keynote speaker. The speakers will represent different discipline of science that would analyze the future impact of the covid-19 pandemic. The speakers will also come from various nations around the world.
