Abstract

Politics can be interpreted as an interpretive struggle about how space is realized as a place of culture and identity. The following article describes the efforts of the national government to build local identity through decentralization policies and regional autonomy, in order to open up public spaces for the contestation of identity and culture of diverse local communities in Indonesia. Based on the using of qualitative methods and using an ethnographic approach, we found that the decentralization policy implementation of Law No. 6/2014 on Villages in Indonesia produced several forms of political contestation between national governments and local communities, including in the form of; first, the institutional design of village governance; second, the process of selecting village heads; third, the tenure of the village head.
