    Since the fracturing of Soeharto’s New Order in 1998, land disputes have catapulted into a major occasion of conflict in Flores. Disputes are between village communities, between villagers and the government, and between indigenous communities and the church. This study takes up issues of adat (customary) and national (positive) law in a fragile ecology and globalising economy, and the ambivalent role being played by the Catholic Church in Flores - as landowner on the one hand, but on the other hand one of the few credible mediators and advocates of human and ecological rights.
