Abstract

This research discusses the involvement of Indonesian non-governmental organisations (NGO) in the Syrian civil war via a case study. Specifically, it looks into the humanitarian aid role implemented by Aksi Cepat Tanggap (ACT) in assisting victims of the Syrian conflict from 2012 to August 2018. This study is a qualitative research and utilised the descriptive analysis method. Data were collected from in depth interview with relevant authorities and the literatures. This topic was viewed through the concepts of Humanitarian Action Principle, Human rights, and International Humanitarian Law. The study discovers that as an NGO, ACT has delivered the humanitarian assistence to those whom are victims of the Syrian civil war through its structural roles in the form of charity programs and social empowerment. However, the largest focus was given to the charity programs. A good framework of cooperation was also established among the Turkish Government, local NGO’s both in Turkey and Syiria and Aksi Cepat Tanggap itself, which contributed positively to successful distribution of humanitarian aid towards the conflict victims. In light of these findings, this study recommends the need for ACT to further strengthen its commitment in providing humanitarian assistance and develop more the program to ensure that future humanitarian assistence programs be more effective.
