Abstract
The Harapan region is governed by a web of regulations. The corre sponding allocation of land is informed by the demands of the intern ational market and Indonesia\’s policy to supply it with the products needed. Thus, human intera ctions 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, ofte n in conflict with the state and concession holders.
