A STUDY ON IMPLEMENTING LAW AS A TOOL OF SOCIAL ENGINEERING POSTREGIONAL ELECTION CONFLICT IN WEST SUMBA REGENCY
Southwest Sumba Regency has a diverse culture. This is what often causes conflict. The method used
in this study is empirical legal research. In the study it was found that the application of the Theory as a Tool of
Social Engineering in the holding of general elections for regional heads under Southwest Sumba had not been
used as it should. The Relationship between Legal Theory As a Social Engineering Tool with customary law in
the post-task completion of the regional head in the southwest Sumba district has not shown a positive nature.
The role of government and society must be more than a precursor so that the law can be adhered to. The people
of Southwest Sumba and the Sumba community in general must be able to carry out customary and legal law as
Social Engineering together.
