Abstract

This paper analyses the role of the Telukjambe United Farmers Union (STTB) in the successful resolution of agrarian conflicts in Karawang Regency in 2016-2017. The purpose of this study was to determine the role and supporting factors of the success of STTB in resolving conflicts that occurred in the District of Telukjambe Barat, Karawang Regency, West Java Province. Conflicts involving Telukjambe farmers and the Pertiwi Lestari Company (PTPL) can be traced historically. This research was conducted with literature study, documentation and interviews with relevant sources. We see that the role of STTB is very significant in successfully resolving conflicts that occur, where STTB is the political power possessed by the Telukjambe farmers in handling conflicts that occur with PTPL. With the existing limitations, STTB in the course of this conflict made efforts to accommodate the hopes and demands of farmers to end with the creation of solutions that benefit both parties.
