Abstract

Agrarian conflict in Forest Register 45 Mesuji Lampung which has been going on for a dozen years is a manifestation of contestation on forest area access rights between communities and concession-holding companies. This conflict, in turn, increases not only on the issue of access to forest area management but also the right's ignorance toward citizens who live in the forest area itself. This article raises two issues concerning the dynamics of the politic of ignorance toward citizens in the context of the conflict in Forest Register 45 and the ignorant process that leads to the social exclusion of residents in Forest Regions 45. This article uses a socio-legal approach and the perspectives of Tania Li, Hirsch, and Derek Hall about the power of exclusion. This article concludes that the illegal stigma attributed to farmers who live at the Register 45 forest area becomes the legitimacy of local governments for a politic of ignorance toward citizens' civil and economic and social rights. The politics of ignorance to the fundamental rights of the citizens is done as a series of social exclusion process, which is essentially a violation of human rights.
