KOMUNIKASI, PARTISIPASI, DAN KONFLIK DALAM PEMBERDAYAAN MASYARAKAT
This research aims to analysis the connections among communication, participation, and conflict
within community empowerment. As we know that community empowerment is not a single activity,
but is an ongoing process which is cannot be separated to other variables. Without participation from
all of the stakeholders involved, the community empowerment cannot reach its goal. This
participation gives an open and greater opportunity for all stakeholders to get involved in the process,
even to control it. Unfortunately, a greater power for the stakeholder precisely will give an
unproductive impact when it correlated to a hidden interest which often tends to give an advantage to
their own group. Furthermore, it cannot be denied if the emerging of conflict which is difficult to be
solved. In this part, communication plays an important role to prevent it from that conflict when there
is a mutual understanding among all of the stakeholders. This effective communication will also
contribute to conflict resolution.
