This essay discusses human rights negotiations within the setting of plural legal orders from a socio-legal perspective. Human rights is approached here as a socially constructed concept, resulting from continuous and circular practices of negotiations. The ways actors invoked human rights to formulate claims against agricultural modernisation in Merauke, Indonesia are analysed as a case study.

Keywords: interlegality, human rights practices, Papua, vernacularisation
