It seems that the reason why Muslims yearn to visit Mecca has to be understood by looking at what emotions, and especially spiritual emotions, are triggered through this visit or even through the imagination of visiting the holy land. This yearning cannot just be understood based on wanting to fulfill one of the five pillars of Islam. Religious or spiritual travel like the journey to the holy land of Islam needs to be understood within the context of an individual’s emotional landscape, spiritual development and urge for spiritual self-improvement to become a better person and Muslim. This article used qualitative method, particularly semi-structured interviews with the informants. The results showed that pilgrimage to the Muslim holy land in Mecca can be a changing experience for the pilgrim undertaking the journey.</p> 2019-06-26T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Regeneration Process of The Prosperous Justice Party (PKS) to Maintain Its Existence by Election Year 2014 2019-11-21T06:03:49+00:00 Yusa Djuyandi Fifi Lutfiah Sodikin <p>Political parties prepare prospective national leaders through a political recruitment process.

There are many factors triggered this condition, such as the increase in population pressure and conflict, privatization and changing tenure arrangements, poverty, social differentiation and also environmental degradation. It’s undeniable that food security is a multidimensional problem, especially for people who lived in rural or isolated areas. In Mentawai Islands, a district located in the western part of Indonesia, the indigenous people depend on forest product (sago) as their main source of food. However, since 2012, the government has destroyed their food culture by establishing the ‘National Food Security Improvement Program’ and conducting the agricultural intensification as well as establishing 600 hectares of new rice fields in six sub - districts; South Pagai, North Pagai, Sikakap, South Sipora, North Sipora, and South Siberut. This study is conducted comprehensively using the Food Security and Vulnerability Analysis (FSVA) to understand and describe the exact profiles of food-insecurities and vulnerable households. Furthermore, it also identified the risks and vulnerabilities of food consumption in Mentawai communities. Findings depict that shifting or transforming the food culture from sago to rice is a serious issue because socio-cultural aspects influence it and surely the government has to make a parallel policy that can accommodate the people needs, not only prioritize the national development agenda.</p> 2019-07-22T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Adaptation of Migrating Betawi People: Existences, Forms, and Developments 2019-11-21T06:03:46+00:00 Deska Fitriyani Yoyok Hendarso Yunindyawati Yunindyawati <p>Adaptation of migrating Betawi people as the ethnic migrant in urban areas is an interesting social phenomena related to urbanism.
