Abstract

Land ownership is an essential factor for people who still depend on agriculture for their lives. The issue of land ownership is important because it relates to the access and social livelihoods of farming communities. So, land is not only an asset but also functions as a means of production for farming communities and a source of income for people in rural areas. This study aims to see how the social process of land ownership transfer as part of tourism development in the southern coast of Tabanan. The two villages that are the case studies of this research are Belalang Village and Pangkung Tibah Village, wherein these two villages there has been a large-scale transfer of ownership since the early 1990s. The data obtained is then analyzed by reading the information that appears and quoting, paraphrasing, and interpreting the data on the results obtained. The study results indicate that there has been a large-scale transfer of land ownership in these two villages carried out by strong actors, namely the government and investors, to develop tourism areas. The transfer of ownership is also carried out in a compelling way and by using aspects of physical violence to get the land from the community. The land sale is also the result of the socio-economic inequality of agricultural products with the demands of life to quickly sell their land.
