Seminar Hak Asasi Manusia

Seminar tentang Hak Asasi Manusia diselenggarakan pada tanggal 30 Maret 2017 bertempat di Gedung PAU, UIN Sunan Kalijaga, Yogyakarta. Seminar ini menghadirkan dua pembicara penting yaitu Dr. Muh. Indadun Rahmat, M.Si. selaku Ketua Komisi Nasional Hak Asasi Manusia (Komnas HAM) dan Dr. Siti Ruhaini Dzuhayatin, MA. selaku Dosen Fakultas Syariah dan Hukum UIN Sunan Kalijaga sekaligus Komisioner Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OKI). Seminar ini merupakan bagian dari rangkaian acara kerja sama sama antara UIN Sunan Kalijaga dan Komnas HAM dalam rangka mendorong kampus Ramah HAM.

Dalam presentasinya tentang “Mainstreaming HAM: Pembangunan Berbasis HAM Melalui Kota Ramah HAM”, Indadun Rahmat memaparkan tentang konsep pembangunan berbasis HAM yang saat ini tengah didorong pemerintah. Pemerintah melalui Komnas HAM sedang menjalankan program Kota Ramah HAM yang telah berhasil merangkul 15 kabupaten kota di Indonesia. Menurut Indadun Rahmat, aspek-aspek yang harus diperhatikan dalam pembangunan berbasis HAM adalah aspek partisipasi, akuntabilitas, berpihak pada kelompok rentan (affirmative action), dan pemberdayaan. Aspek-aspek tersebut sangat penting dalam upaya mewujudkan pembangunan berbasis HAM untuk memastikan masyarakat tetap terpenuhi hak-hak dasarnya sebagai manusia di tengah upaya-upaya pembangunan yang dilakukan oleh pemerintah.

Siti Ruhaini Dzuhayatin menyampaikan materi tentang “Independent Permanent Human Right Comission (IPHRC), Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OKI): Kontribusi dan Manfaat bagi Indonesia”. Dalam presentasinya, ia menyampaikan bahwa Indonesia memiliki citra positif dalam penegakkan HAM di mata dunia, khususnya diantara negara-negara anggota OKI. Namun demikian, ia menyampaikan bahwa Indonesia masih memiliki banyak tantangan dalam mewujudkan terpenuhinya hak asasi manusia. Misalnya ancaman dari kelompok populis yang seringkali menggunakan isu SARA untuk memecah belah persatuan bangsa.

Salah satu isu perempuan yang diangkat dalam seminar ini adalah fenomena sunat perempuan dan perkawinan usia anak. Praktik-praktik tersebut merupakan bukti masih minimnya pemenuhan hak asasi perempuan. Siti Ruhaini Dzuhayatin mengakui masih ada beberapa individu maupun kelompok agama yang masih membolehkan praktik-praktik tersebut dilakukan. Akibatnya, judicial review terkait batas usia perkawinan bagi perempuan beberapa waktu lalu ditolak oleh Mahkamah Konstitusi. Oleh karena itu, perubahan paradigma yang berpihak pada HAM sangat penting dilakukan demi mewujudkan terpenuhinya hak asasi manusia bagi setiap individu, khususnya perempuan sebagai kelompok yang paling rentan.

Pada tanggal 14-16 Maret 2017, Rifka Annisa menyelenggarakan pelatihan “Pencegahan Kekerasan terhadap Perempuan dan Anak bagi Pendidik Sebaya” yang berlokasi di Omah nDeso, Desa Bleberan, Kabupaten Gunung Kidul. Peserta kegiatan ini berjumlah 32 orang siswa dan siswi kelas X yang berasal dari empat sekolah, yaitu SMKN 1 Wonosari, SMKN 1 Gedangsari, SMKN 1 Ngawen dan SMKN 1 Saptosari. Selama kegiatan ini berlangsung, para peserta pelatihan juga diberikan kesempatan untuk menginap di rumah penduduk sekitar sehingga memberikan pengalaman dan pembelajaran baru bagi mereka.

Pelatihan ini memiliki beberapa tujuan diantaranya meningkatkan pemahaman peserta tentang kekerasan terhadap perempuan dan anak, meningkatkan kemampuan peserta dalam melakukan fasilitasi di kalangan teman sebayanya, serta meningkatkan pemahaman dan keterampilan peserta dalam merancang kegiatan sosialisasi dan kampanye dalam upaya pencegahan kekerasan terhadap perempuan dan anak di kalangan teman sebayanya.

Kegiatan pelatihan ini mendapatkan dukungan dari berbagai pihak di Kabupaten Gunung Kidul. Hal ini dibuktikan dengan sambutan baik yang disampaikan Kepala Desa Bleberan, Supraptono, pada saat acara pembukaan pelatihan. Beliau menyampaikan apreasiasi yang tinggi terhadap Rifka Annisa atas inisiatifnya menyelenggarakan kegiatan ini. Acara ini diharapkan dapat memberikan manfaat bagi masyarakat Kabupaten Gunung Kidul secara umum, khususnya dalam upaya pencegahan kekerasan terhadap perempuan dan anak. Tak lupa, beliau juga memberikan pesan dan motivasi bagi peserta pelatihan agar mengikuti pelatihan dengan maksimal. Selain dari Kepala Desa Bleberan, sambutan lain juga diberikan oleh perwakilan dari Rifka Annisa dan FPK2PA yang dalam sambutannya menyampaikan apresiasi dan dukungan atas terselenggaranya kegiatan ini.

Dalam kegiatan pelatihan ini, para peserta dibagi menjadi dua kelas yaitu kelas perempuan dan kelas laki-laki. Pemisahan kelas ini dilakukan karena materi yang disampaikan untuk laki-laki dan perempuan agak berbeda. Selain itu, faktor kenyamanan juga menjadi salah satu aspek penting mengapa kelas laki-laki dan perempuan dipisah mengingat isu kekerasan terhadap perempuan dan anak adalah isu yang sensitif. Meksipun materi yang disampaikan sama-sama tentang isu kekerasan terhadap perempuan dan anak, namun pendekatan yang digunakan di tiap kelas berbeda mengingat masalah dan pengalaman yang dialami laki-laki dan perempuan berbeda.

Selama kegiatan ini berlangsung, para peserta terlihat begitu antusias dalam menjalani tiap sesi pelatihan. Hal ini tidak terlepas dari bantuan para fasilitator dari Rifka Annnisa yang berusaha memandu tiap sesi pelatihan dengan menarik dan menyenangkan, misalnya dengan menggunakan fasilitas video dan musik, bahkan bermain game bersama. Tak hanya itu, para peserta juga diajak untuk berefleksi tentang pengalaman dan lingkungan sekitarnya sehingga mereka menjadi lebih peka terhadap masalah-masalah yang mereka hadapi, khususnya masalah-masalah yang berkaitan dengan kekerasan terhadap perempuan dan anak. Untuk menyiapkan mereka menjadi pendidik sebaya, para peserta pelatihan juga dibekali informasi tentang metode komunikasi efektif yang diharapkan dapat membantu mereka dalam merespon masalah-masalah yang diceritakan teman-teman sebayanya.

Secara umum, para peserta memberikan respon dan apresiasi positif selama kegiatan pelatihan ini berlangsung. Harapannya, pelatihan ini dapat membekali diri mereka untuk menjadi pendidik sebaya yang baik dan mampu memberikan informasi yang tepat bagi teman-teman sebayanya. Semoga dengan adanya kelompok pendidik sebaya ini dapat membantu upaya pencegahan dan penanganan kekerasan terhadap perempuan dan anak, khususnya di Kabupaten Gunung Kidul. []
