Embodying Ecological Policy in Defending the Leuser Ecosystem Area for Sustaining Collective Life
Triono Eddy

This work is aimed at exploring an appropriate strategy and approach in embodying the ecological policy in defending the Leuser ecosystem area for maintaining the sustainability of collective life. This is highly relevant in light of the Leuser ecosystem functioning as the world lung that supplies and guarantees the availability of the collective sources, such as biodiversity, climate stability, water and so forth. This ecosystem is increasingly pivotal when we found that more than 1,7 million hectares of the Leuser ecosystems had already been destructed. The destruction stemmed from the wrong policy or paradoxical policy of the government, blunder regulation in the form of conflicted norms, legal vacuum, and blurred norms in regulating the Leuser ecosystem. To visualize the above ideas, this study will apply the normative legal research for coherencing the conflicted norms and empirical legal research for measuring the impact of the implementation of the related regulation. In the end, this work will offers a coherence approach in solving the conflicted norms, making relevant laws in addressing the legal vacuum, and reinterpreting the blurred norms in the management and protection of the Leuser ecosystems and the maintainance of sustainability of collective life .
