Abstract

This paper’s main problems are the significant spectrums of hoaxes in Indonesia by examining its definition, actors, and discourse as well as analyzing the role of the Indonesian police in tackling hoaxes and the critical challenges faced by them from the policy context. The socio-legal approach is used in this study to provide a contemporary legal perspective in explaining the contemporary issue, such as social media, the internet, the internet of things, cyberspace, and other social issues related to it, such as social media hoax, social media bullying, hate speech, hack, and cybersecurity breach. This paper has ultimately scrutinized and discussed the discourse of hoax and fake news as part of multifaceted information disorder in Indonesia and the National Police of Indonesia or POLRI’s policy focus on tackling these information disorders, including hoaxes and fake news.
