Abstract

This study aims to describe the impact of border conflict in village development,  such as infrastructure, health, education, economy and political development between kampar regency and rokan hulu regency. Historically, boundary conflicts that occurred in five villages in the Kampar and Rokan Hulu Regencies, occurred in 1999 during the division of Rokan Hulu Regency from Kampar District (Law No. 53 of 1999), but in 1999 conflicts over five villages this is still not visible in society. The conflict began to emerge amid the community in 2005, namely the issuance of the Riau Governor’s Regulation Number 30 of 2005 which contained the affirmation of the status of the administrative areas of the five villages included in the administrative area of Kampar Regency. The border conflict between Kampar Regency and Rokan Hulu Regency has a positive and negative impact on village development. The positive impact was that the five villages received funding from the two districts while the negative impact made the five villages feel confused. In addition, negative impacts were also felt in the development of education, health, and politics in five villages.
