Were the ethnic conflicts in Sambas and Ambon the result of the same set of factors? The author of this article thinks that they were, blaming the ambivalent and unfair treatment meted out by the police and the armed forces, and the subsequent absence of proper and just law enforcement. Feeling pushed into a corner with no way out, the local people, the Malays and Dayaks in Sambas and the Muslim and Christian Moluccans in Ambon, literally took the law into their own hands when the grip of the New Order regime was relaxed. Cultural differences did play a role, but not nearly as cogently as the non-cultural factors. The differences between the conflicts in Ambon and Sambas lay in the economic disparity in the former and the inequality in job opportunities and ownership in the latter. Not content with simply identifying causes, in the last part of the article the author suggests three steps by which he feels the problems could be solved (EI, Rosemary Robson-Mckillop).
