Abstract

In the latest empowerment studies, community engagement is considered to be an important factor in the success of empowerment programs. Therefore, this study aims to analyze the community engagement that occurs in the fishermen empowerment program in Carocok Anau Village. This study uses a qualitative method with a case study approach. The research was conducted by observation and in-depth interviews with fishermen. The results showed that engagement did not occur due to several factors, namely: failure of social integration, distrust among communities, and deep social class differences between communities.
