Implementation Of Minimum Core Obligation Principle In Regional Financial Management In Indonesia
The principle of minimum core obligations is an answer to the challenges of the local government in fulfilling economic, social and cultural rights. It functions as a guarantor of the basic needs of the people and as a first step for government in carrying out the progressive obligations that are required by the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights. Due to the meagre budget for fulfilling economic, social and cultural rights in the regions, we propose that the concept of minimum core obligations be introduced into law in the management of regional finances in Indonesia. This research is a normative legal research with conceptual and statutory approaches, and it uses stratified sampling of the regions in the target area to select five regions for the conduct of the study, including Province of Bangka Belitung Islands, Province of South Kalimantan Province, Denpasar City, Malang City and Palu City. This study focuses on economic, social and cultural rights, especially the rights to education, health, housing and food.
