This article aims to explore the issue which had sparked the conflicts that occurred in many parts of Singkawang between the year of 2010 to 2013; five of which took place in the South of Singkawang, four cases in the West and Downtown Singkawang, another two happened in the Central and East of Singkawang. Notably, it is important to say that due to its low effects – and being recognized as non-communal conflicts, we agree that Singkawang constitutes a territory with a less escalation potential conflict located in West Kalimantan. The paper also provide explanations to the constructive role of the local institutions – such as The Institution of Dayak Tradition (IDT), The Assembly of Malay Tradition and Culture (AMTC) and The Assembly of Chinese Tradition (ACT) – in stimulating togetherness and mutual cooperation. Integrated with the local government institutions formed by the board of Welfare Development and Public Agencies, these traditional institutions enact several institutions such as the Apparatus of National Assimilation (ANA), the Apparatus of Initial Vigilance (AIV), the Apparatus of Communication of Religious Society (CRS) and the Communication of Regional Intelligent (CRI) for the effort of reconciliation. Basically these organizations and agencies work in close knit to discover prevent and finally arrive at a resolution for any form of conflict that may arise and hence reviving the role of religion and the traditional institutions.
