Global developments, as well as massive and very rapid growth in various fields, especially technology, have brought society and the world to new situations and challenges. Now the world is entering an era which in certain perspectives is called the Industrial Revolution 4.0 or later in the Japanese perspective as the Social Revolution 5.0, requiring all countries in the world to be able to adapt to these changes in order to survive and develop themselves. The international movement to achieve Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in 2030, according to the document Transforming our World: The 2030 demands 4 pillars of development; social, economic, environmental and legal, as well as holistic and sustainable development governance, require various interdisciplinary approaches that are able to synergize various elements in development. This then became the basis/background for the formation of the ITS Development Studies Department.
