Abstract

This study aims to examine the form of collaborative actions of advocacy actors, i.e. government and NGOs (communities) in policies related to domestic violence handling in the Municipality of Malang, Indonesia during the time of the COVID-19 Pandemic, and to analyze the supporting as well as inhibiting factors. Several actors collaborated in advocacy efforts; namely The Women’s Empowerment & Child Protection, Population Control & Family Planning Agency and Women and Children Integrated Service and a non-governmental organization (community) called WCC Dian Mutiara also participated in these efforts. Results showed that the Women's Empowerment, Child Protection, Population Control and Family Planning Agency, the National Policewomen and Children’s Protection Units, the Health Agency, the Social Services Agency, the District Court and the Woman Crisis Center Dian Mutiara had collaborated in advocacy efforts, supported by the existing Regulation Number 12 of 2015 and an intensive public education, but inhibited by public perception of domestic violence and their weak synergy.
