Project: National Law and Regional Riches: Contest Over Natural Resources in East Kalimantan, Indonesia

Abstract: This research project is a study of the relation between official law in relation to natural resources management and exploitation in East Kalimantan. Whereas Indonesia strives to develop a clear and consistent legal system to govern its society and resources, the present laws on natural resources and the division of profits emanating from their exploitation contain overlaps, inconsistencies and ambiguities.

Moreover,  their authority is appropriated by central government agencies in the national capital of Jakarta and removed from such provincial or regional government authorities as are actually responsible for resource management and the implementation of the laws.

Funding: RU Internationaal Fonds

Starting date: January 1, 2016 - January 2020
