Abstract

This study aims to understand the experiences of local communities in dealing with tenurial land conflicts with oil palm plantation companies in Central Kalimantan and to analyze the factors influencing the dynamics of the conflict and efforts to resolve it. The method used combines a participatory action phenomenology approach of community mediation in conflict with qualitative analysis using NVivo application. The main findings include the analysis of Dahrendorf's conflict theory highlighting differences in interests between involved parties, the use of phenomenology approach to understand the experiences and subjective participation of communities, and analysis using NVivo software to map conflict narratives qualitatively. Recommendations taken are the necessity of a holistic approach in resolving oil palm plantation conflicts by considering indigenous community rights, strengthening the government's role in fair and transparent regulation, and considering the experiences and aspirations of communities in the conflict resolution process.
