In the onion metaphor which they use to represent language policy and planning, Ricento and Hornberger compare these participants and levels to onion layers. These levels together with the processes in which the policy is made permeate and interact with each other to varying degrees. They include legislation and political processes, states and supranational agencies, institutions and classroom practitioners. This desk-based research article discusses these ‘layers’ and the different roles which they play in language policy and planning in Rwanda, with a focus on the 2008 language-in-education policy. The article points to a unidirectional top-down approach, to lack of coordination in the way the layers work and interact and to a very limited role of classroom practitioners and practices in the language policy and planning process in Rwanda. These practitioners are conceptualized as mere implementers of policies decided on higher offices, which has negative effects on the effectiveness of the policies and their implementation.</div> Emmanuel Sibomana ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/4.0 2018-06-30 2018-06-30 2 2 99 114 10.29332/ijssh.v2n2.138 Interpersonal society of Satria Dalem https://www.sciencescholar.us/journal/index.php/ijssh/article/view/150 <p style="text-align: justify;">This study examines "Interpersonal Society between offspring of <em>satria dalem</em> with the community in Tohpati Village Klungkung Bali.

The <em>masatia</em> tradition was banned in Bali by the Dutch written agreement with the king of Bali. Although it has been banned, there was only a government to practice <em>masatia</em> in secret until the 1920s. The process of transforming the <em>masatia</em> tradition for each castle in Bali takes place slowly. For the Buleleng castles since 1849 might be stated that there was no more <em>masatia</em>, then followed in the kingdom of Jembrana, Badung, Tabanan, Bangli, Karangasem, Gianyar, and finally in Klungkung.

The role played by the palace in the selection of leadership in general and in the direct election for the regent/mayor/ government particularly is highly crucial. Before the Dutch people came in the 19th century, the political role played by the royal figures had been known to be prominent. After the expedition made by the Majapahit Kingdom in 1343, which was popularly known as the agricultural feudalistic era during which power was determined by a tight caste system, the political role played by the royal figures was prominent. The fact that one kingdom subjugated another supported social stratification in which the palace became the center of power. This present study is intended to reveal the role played by the royal figure as the symbol of traditional power and its implication on the development of democratic politics in general and the direct election for the regent/mayor/governor in particular after the era of reformation. This study was conducted using the historical descriptive qualitative method. The data were collected through library research, field survey, and in-depth interview. These techniques were used to collect opinions and views on the succession of leadership and were supported by the concept of political culture. The result of the study showed that the royal figure still played a role and appeared in the political affairs, and that some were able to “build new kingdoms” successfully, had been made to disappear for a long time by the national political change. Several royal figures were able to combine economic capital, socio-cultural capital, and symbolic capital as stated by Piere Bourdieu, the French sociologist</p> I Putu Gede Suwitha ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/4.0 2018-08-18 2018-08-18 2 2 243 251 10.29332/ijssh.v2n2.171 Dam construction analysis in Indonesia https://www.sciencescholar.us/journal/index.php/ijssh/article/view/166 <p style="text-align: justify;">Dam construction project will bring benefits to people, especially for those who live in the dry area.

Bali Mandara is a program aimed by the provincial government of Bali for the welfare of the Balinese people. Bali Mandara is an abbreviation for safe and peaceful progress. This research is motivated by the desire of the government to realize the welfare of the community which is part of the functions and duties of the regional government, including the provincial government of Bali. The vision that was set forth in the Bali Provincial RPJMD 2008-2013 was "Realization of a Qualified Regional Development Plan towards Bali Mandara". In its implementation, this program has had a significant impact on the welfare of Balinese people.

Communication is a process of conveying information from someone to others in the hope of a common understanding and perception. In order to have a common perception between the government and the community with regard to the objectives, vision, and mission of the Bali Mandara program, it requires communication development in the implementation of the Bali Mandara program itself. The purpose of this study is to determine the implementation of perspective communication development applied. This study was examined using qualitative research methods and used several methods of data collection such as in-depth interviews, focus group discussions (FGD), documents and observations. The findings of this study are to elaborate on the meaning of the Bali Mandara program in the perspective of communication development and to elaborate on the implementation of participatory communication development in the digital era.</p> Anak Agung Ngurah Oka Suryadinatha Gorda Ni Putu Yunita Anggreswari ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/4.0 2018-08-23 2018-08-23 2 2 265 278 10.29332/ijssh.v2n2.173 Sustainable tourism creation as core economy facing the industrial revolution challenges https://www.sciencescholar.us/journal/index.php/ijssh/article/view/175 <p style="text-align: justify;">This study at examining sustainable tourism as a core economy regarding the industrial revolution challenges.
