Abstract: 
The Harapan region is governed by a web of regulations. The corresponding allocation of land is informed by the demands of the international market and Indonesia's policy to supply it with the products needed. Thus, human interactions with the rainforest transformation systems are largely determined by external economic drivers. Taking the anthropology of globalization as a starting point, our paper outlines the relationships between international demands, state regulations, the allocation of land, and the way local people, whose rights have been disregarded for decades, and migrants make use of it locally, often in conflict with the state and concession holders.
