Proceedings of the International Conference on Community Development (ICCD 2020)
This article raises the issue of the dynamic relations between central and regional governments in Indonesia. Article 18A of the 1945 Constitution, a result of the second amendment of 2000, states the relations between the Center and the Regions is only formulated in a broad outline, so that it does not reach its clarity on how the relations between the Center and the Regions should be carried out. The method used was Normative Jurisdiction with a statute approach, analytical approach,
... ve approach, and historical approach. The discussion in this article analyzes the enactment of Law Number 5 of 1974 concerning the Principles of Government in the Regions, Law Number 22 of 1998 concerning Regional Government, Law Number 32 of 2004 concerning Regional Government, Law Number 23 of 2014 about Regional Government. By analyzing the approach and statute approach, it can be seen that each of the Laws on Regional Government that has been and is currently in force in Indonesia, turns out to have a different Political Law in following the development of dynamics occurring in society and is also adjusted to the aims and intentions from the direction of legal development implemented through legislation. In the future, the relationship between the Center and Regions must be carried out in a fair, harmonious manner, and attentive to the specificity and diversity of the region and must be regulated by laws which in its formation must be democratic and responsive.
