Keywords:Community Development, CSR, Conflict Resolution
Conflicts that occur between companies and communities often have detrimental impacts, both for companies, communities and local governments. Conflicts that occur are usually over land ownership or customary land issues, while one of the main factors causing conflict is community dissatisfaction with companies that are considered to have less attention and contribution to society. The conflict that occurred between the company and the community was in accordance with the media coverage of klip.com (2022) which stated that the Tebo Regency Government mediated to resolve conflicts between the community and two companies in the area which had been going on for a long time. This research is aimed at finding solutions to conflicts involving communities and companies through community empowerment schemes in the CSR program. As a result, the implementation of community empowerment in CSR programs is proven to reduce conflict between communities and companies. In essence, community development must not create dependency, but must be able to encourage the creation of more creativity and self-reliance in society.
