Abstract

English Abstract: The land of Manggarai Timur and Ngada in Flores, Indonesia, is facing complexities in the agrarian sector. There is an overlap of laws on land tenure in the border area between the regencies based on the Regional Spatial Plans of both Manggarai Timur and Ngadha regencies. Not only that this creates horizontal conflicts between the peoples, but the overlap of mining policies also affects the environment. This research investigates the problems and discovers that the complexity can only be untangled by creating a ‘Strategic Area’ which can be implemented with a reconstruction of the current system of spatial planning law.

Indonesian Intisari: Tanah Manggarai Timur dan Ngada di Flores, Indonesia, menghadapi kompleksitas serius di sektor agraris. Ada tumpang tindih hukum tentang kepemilikan lahan di daerah perbatasan antar kabupaten berdasarkan Rencana Tata Ruang Wilayah Kabupaten Manggarai Timur dan Ngadha. Hal ini menyebabkan konflik horizontal antara masyarakat. Selain itu, tumpang tindih kebijakan terkait pertambangan juga mempengaruhi lingkungan. Penelitian ini menyelidiki masalah dan menemukan bahwa kompleksitasnya hanya dapat dilepaskan dengan menciptakan ‘Kawasan Strategis’ yang hanya dapat diimplementasikan dengan adanya rekonstruksi terhadap sistem hukum penataan ruang saat ini.
