Tassana Nualsomsri

Abstract


The research article entitled "Violence, Subculture, and Youth Gang in Yogyakarta
Indonesia Post Era of the New Orde " aims to study the formation of adolescents in
the city of Yogyakarta. The gangs are influential, and the patterns of activity generated
by these groups often lead to violence. The emergence of many teen gangs in
Indonesia and in the city of Yogyakarta after the New Orde era showed that the
development and changes of these groups were not the results of government support
as was evident in the New Orde era, but these youth were formed by several factors,
mainly social factors, Indonesia's politics, and economy were increasingly complicated
during the New Orde transition period. The results of this study found that the
emergence of juvenile gangs in the city of Yogyakarta strengthens the culture of
violence that has long been taking place in Indonesian society. Meanwhile, the
education area of the city of Yogyakarta after the New Orde era has become a
reflection of the problem. Coupled with the context of change as a result of several
factors, namely economic factors, socio-cultural, religious, and others.
