In the growing international agreements as a consequence of Indonesia’s wider participation in
the global community, the existence of free market harms the domestic industrial sector,
especially to the community. The number of treaties which have been ratified by the government
considered as incomparable to the losses incurred, particularly to the possibility of human rights
violations of information dysfunction, and the lack of public participation as well as evaluation
functions. This study uses a descriptive qualitative approach where data is obtained from
primary and secondary data. The purpose of this study is to find out the conceptual and practical
considerations faced in the possibility of violations of human rights. Moreover, the article also
addresses the form of diplomacy carried out by the public regarding several government policies
in the Free Trade Agreement and its relations to human rights. The study suggests that the
government must guarantee human rights by involving affected communities as a form of
collective understanding. Furthermore, the government must also monitor, evaluate, assess, as
well as strengthen the communication from various stakeholders to eliminate the hidden costs
that can harm the community.
