Abstract

Indigenous populations' wisdom ensures effective and sustainable management of natural resources for their benefit. Indonesia acknowledges indigenous peoples' rights, including their natural resources. Coral reef preservation is influenced by economic and political considerations. Law enforcement necessitates a delicate balance of legal clarity, pragmatism, and fairness. Gustav Radbruch's three components form the basis of legal ideas. Conflicts may emerge, and justice must triumph in such instances. As a result, the government should emphasize justice through incorporating communities in development, recognizing indigenous peoples' rights, and including them in resource management. This is consistent with John Rawls' idea of honest justice, which promotes social fairness for all Indonesians.
