The composition of people in Yogyakarta is diverse in culture. It is like two sides of a coin. On the one hand it can be a strength or potential for social and economic development. However on the other hand it could be a trigger for a conflict if it is not supported by an adequate force of social capital. Until now Yogyakarta did not have a history of an alarming conflict, but the city is not free from the possibility of socially destructive conflict. Moreover in recent years Yogyakarta has changed significantly in the social aspects which could open the door for even greater conflict. Government of Yogyakarta Provincial also has a major responsibility for anticipating and managing social conflict. The government is required to develop a public policy which is fair, reflects a multicultural perspective and sensitive to a variety of potential conflicts. In addition to providing a map of potential conflict in Yogyakarta, the research conducted by CPPS UGM also provides recommendations as the basis for policy development by the government, particularly in the areas of management and conflict resolution.
