BPPM Reviews the Book of the Dean of FISIP which Related to Resolution on Land Ownership Conflict

The Dean of FISIP UB, Dr. Sholih Muadi, suggested the use of non-litigation way to all parties who are currently experiencing conflicts over land ownership or plantation land.

This was stated by Dr. Sholih Muadi on the With Book Series 4 agenda organized by the Research and Community Service Agency (BPPM) FISIP Universitas Brawijaya, Wednesday (11/24/2021).

“The resolution of land ownership conflicts must be completed. Based on land provisions, there are several ways that can be taken, such as litigation and non-litigation,” he said.

According to Sholih, it would be better for someone who is resolving land ownership conflicts to choose a non-litigation route. Because if you go through litigation way, it will take time.

“For example, if litigation is decided by a court, then how long does it take to appeal to the highest level? It would be better if through non-litigation because here there will be mediation, negotiations and the potential for reconciliation, “he said.

The increase in land ownership conflicts occurs, said Sholih, because people’s awareness of asset ownership has increased.

“In the past, no one was interested in land, but once in the surrounding location there is an education, manufacturing or tourism industry, so initially it became a suburb then immediately became expensive. This can also trigger conflicts,” said this lecturer of Political Science Universitas Brawijaya.

In this activity, Dr Sholih Muadi’s book was also used as a material for discussion by other speakers such as the Special Staff of the Vice President of the Republic of Indonesia, Prof. Dr. Satya Arinanto, and Prof. Nuarrual Hilal Md Dahlan, a lecturer from Universiti Utara Malaysia.
