Land dispute resolution through the special land courts as a transformative step in agrarian reform in Indonesia


Elza Syarief

Land disputes involving the common people, local entrepreneurs, foreign investors, or government agencies are increasingly rife in both the National Land Agency (BPN) and the General Courts and the State Administrative Courts. There has been a suggestion that a special court should be formed to handle land matters within the scope of the General Court. In dealing with land issues, coordinated and integrated policies and measures are needed, bearing in mind that land cases cover cross-sect oral tasks and involve more than one government agency. This paper revealed that to establish a special land court and land arbitration institution with quality human resources is an absolute prerequisite. Judges, BPN and local government employees and related officials, land academics who can be expert witnesses and advocates are human resources that need to be prepared and continuously developed. Main conclusion drawn was that the agrarian reform that is being carried out aims to make Indonesia a prosperous future, a people who can participate in world culture, and an increased sense of justice.
