Abstract

This research is aimed to identify human insecurity in the village, especially women, and how this contributes to peacebuilding in the village. This research was conducted in the village of Sidomulyo, Batu City, East Java Province, Indonesia, which since 2018 has declared itself as Peace Village. The approach used is the Human Security Approach (HSA) because this approach is centered on humans as objects for peace or development and provides space for individuals as subjects, security references, and ultimately security providers. This research was conducted during the Covid-19 pandemic, which eventually becomes the context in several areas of human security. The results show that women in this village feel that the Covid-19 pandemic threatens their economic and health security. The environment is also threatened due to the massive development of the tourism industry. Personal insecurity mainly arises because there are still cases of domestic violence that are never resolved through the legal mechanism. Community insecurity arises several times when new settlers and minorities show different symbols of identity. In the political area, although there have been many women's empowerment programs in this village, the quality and quantity of women's involvement in the policy-making process are still very limited.
