The emergence of regional boundary conflicts is triggered by an unplanned regional expansion policy. It is because the process of regional expansion is much influenced by political interests. In the context of the regional expansion, aspects of territoriality has been required in the Law 22 of 1999, the Law No. 32 of 2004 as well as the Law No. 23 of 2014 on the Regional Government. In terms of this, the regional expansion must be clear boundaries of its territory. Besides the three laws as mentioned, the regional expansion still refer to the Government Decree No. 78 of 2007 on Procedures for the Establishment, Abolition, and the Merger of the Regional designated as the implementation of the Law No. 32 of 2004. However, the Government Decree also do not set the technicalities of determining the boundary region. Therefore, this conditions then encourage the issuance of policies affirmation of boundary area through the Ministry of Internal Affairs Decree No. 1 of 2006 which has been replaced by the Ministry of Internal Affairs Decree No. 76 of 2012, then replaced again with the Ministry of Internal Affairs Decree No. 141 of 2017 concerning Affirmation of Regional Boundaries.
