International Investment Law and Transfer of Technology Presents Experts from Switzerland and Hungary

Faculty of Law Universitas Islam Indonesia (UII) held an International Seminar entitled International Investment Law and Transfer of Technology, on Thursday (5/9/2019). The event was organized by Faculty of Law UII in collaboration with Swisscontact, the Indonesian Intellectual Property Center Association (ASKII), and Telkom University (UT).

The seminar was divided into two sessions that presented six legal experts from various perspectives to study the phenomenon of technology transfer and intellectual property. In the first session presenting Dr. Kamran Housang Pour, Nandang Sutrisno, SH, MH, LLM, PhD, Dr. Siti Anisah, S.H., M.Hum., and Professor Dr. Sefriani, S.H., M.Hum., As the speakers. While the second session was filled by Professor Fèzer Tamás, Professor Dr. Ni’matul Huda, S.H., M.Hum., Dr. Budi Agus Riswandi, S.H., M.H., and Christoper Cason, JD. The entire material is delivered in English.

During the first session, Dr. Kamran Housang Pour from the Swiss Federal Institute of Intellectual Property, delivered his expertise on the International Patent Protection System and Transfer of Technology in Foreign Direct Investment. According to him, in this current era, full attention is needed from all aspects of law, on not only technological developments, but also the ‘ideas’ of technologies. According to him, humans have a tendency to ‘share ideas’ in developing technology. These events led to Technology Transfer. According to Kamran, the government has an obligation to protect the Technology Transfer process through policies and laws. “The government should have protection for Technology Transfer”, he stressed in the forum.

Nandang Sutrisno SH, MH, LLM, PhD, delivered material related to Foreign Investment during the Second Term of Joko Widodo. According to Nandang, there have been a lot of policy changes from the first half to the two governments of President Joko Widodo. Nandang said, the investment index during the administration of President Joko Widodo increased in the midterm 2015-2019. The index increased through digital economic growth in Indonesia. According to Nandang, Indonesia has become one of the biggest houses for Unicorns. In fact, the value of Unicorn’s investment in Indonesia has even been able to beat the government’s investment. “GoJek is bigger than Garuda … “added Nandang while giving examples of data.

Unlike Nandang, Dr. Siti Anisah, S.H., M.Hum., showed the horrors of the challenges for investment in Indonesia. According to Siti Anisah, actually Indonesia is a ‘paradise’ for foreign investment. Government policies have made it easy and friendly to foreign investment. However, obstacles actually arise from irresponsible actors. “I think the Indonesian is a heaven for investment, the regulation itself is friendly with investment, but the actor doesn’t,” she said. According to Siti Anisah, Indonesia must immediately improve the law structure and law enforcement of foreign investment policies. She said, the fact is there are many obstacles occurring to foreign investors in Indonesia. “One of them is the price of advocates for foreign investors is more expensive,” she added.

Professor Dr. Sefriani, S.H., M.Hum., expressed her views on the Bilateral Investment Treaty (BIT) from Indonesian perspective. According to Sefriani, the existence would have the potential to harm Indonesia if not seriously discussed by the government. Although used widely by many countries, BIT can be detrimental to Indonesia as it does not specify a clear parameter for its termination. “Many BITs contain unclear parameters for such terms as fair and equal treatment, there is no definition for ‘fair and equal treatment'”, notes Sefriani.

International Seminar Commemorating 70 years of UDHR

In commemorating the 70th Anniversary of World Human Rights Day which falls on December 10 2018, the Faculty of Law UII collaborates with the Center for Human Rights Studies (PUSHAM), the Norwegian Center of Human Rights (NCHR) and Base for International Law and ASEAN Legal Studies (BILALS) successfully held an International Seminar entitled “70 Years After UDHR: Indonesian American, and Norwegian on progress perspectives”. This international seminar invited three Human Rights experts who had different backgrounds, namely Eko Riyadi S.H., M.H (Indonesia), Aksel Tomte (Norway), and Christopher Cason JD (United States of America).

On this occasion the event was opened by the Secretary of the Department Faculty of Law the Islamic University of Indonesia, Bagya Agung Prabowo S.H, M.H., Ph.D. In his remarks, Bagya expressed his appreciation and thanks for the organization of this event, “Thank you for the presence of all the participants who attended the seminar today and also thank all the speakers. Hopefully with this international seminar we can increase our knowledge in the field of human rights”, he said.

After the event was opened by him, Dodik Setiawan Nur Heriyanto S.H., M.H., LL.M., P.hD as the moderator invited the three speakers to come on stage and start the session. On this occasion, Eko Riyadi got the first opportunity to give a presentation related to the topic of 70-year after the UDHR: developments, challenges and opportunities. In his presentation, he explained that there was still a debate between the UDHR as an instrument and the Indonesian State Constitution. This is proven by several things, “as real evidence of this debate is the application of the Death Penalty as one of the legal sanctions which is contrary to the Right of Life which has been regulated in international human rights instruments such as UDHR and ICCPR,” he said. Furthermore, he also explained that the paradigm related to human rights is western products is still a major challenge in the field of human rights in Indonesia.

Furthermore, Aksel Tomte in his presentation explained the topic about 70-year with the UDHR. Aksel explained that, in Norway, human rights have been written in the constitution since 1814 which regulates freedom of expression and freedom from torture. Internationally, the first International Human Rights Instrument ratified by Norway took place in 1953 through the European Convention of Human Rights (ECHR). In the development of human rights in Norway, human rights have brought several changes such as the Amendment of the Norwegian Constitution in 2014 by adding a new chapter on human rights. On the contrary, in the last few years Refugee and Immigrant cases have still become “Missing links” in Norwegian Law.

The theme of the last presentation in this international seminar was related to the Progress towards the UDHR hosted by Christopher Cason JD. In his presentation, he explained that the progress of human rights enforcement in the United States (USA) facing “ups and downs”. “In 1964, the US Government promulgated a law relating to civil rights, which was a strict form of our government to prevent further discrimination cases. However, this development did not reach its peak after the tragedy of 9/11 which resulted in the government issuing the Patriot Act and gave authority to the government to overcome terrorism in a way that was not in accordance with the law, “he said. The event was attended by around 150 participants from students, lecturers, lawyers, police officer’s academy, human rights activists, etc. The participants were very enthusiastic listening including giving some questions related to the topic of today’s international seminar, in total there were about ten questions asked by the participants to be discussed in this international seminar. Through this event, participants are expected to increase their knowledge in the field of Law, especially in the Human Rights Law.
