Dr. Bambang Suparno
Abstract: This study aimed to know the governments attempt in overcoming human smuggling and asylum seeker (P2MP2S) in Indonesia. The methodology that is used is descriptive qualitative methodology with normative approach to analyze the primary and secondary data. The result showed that there was an enhancement of human smuggling in Indonesia, especially the illegal immigrants. The government had tried three attempts to handle the number of human smuggling in Indonesia, those are: preventive attempt is a direct action to stop the illegal immigrants living in Indonesia by doing deportation, detention, and extradition, repressive attempt is suppressing the illegal immigrants through action and partnership attempt is the coordination between Indonesia with United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and International Organization of Migration (IOM) along with related party. However, the attempts in handling the smugglers were still not working optimally, yet, even though the agency had already done their task and authority. Therefore, the handling towards this problem need to be coordinated and pushed more in order to make it more intensive.
