Warren, C. (2013) Legal certainty for whom? Land contestation and value transformations at Gili Trawangan, Lombok. In: Lucas, A. and Warren, C., (eds.) Land for the People: The State and Agrarian Conflict in Indonesia. Ohio University Press/Swallow Press, Athens, Ohio, pp. 244-273.
The conflict over land on the island of Gili Trawangan, Lombok, is one of the many intractable cases inherited from the late New Order. It evolved in the context of rapid value transformations in the local, national, and global economies, as smallholders competed for land with commercial plantations, then resort development, and more recent incursions of the international property market.The case involved repeated government land clearance campaigns, reclaiming actions of local settlers, and emerging social divisions among the islands
