Abstract

Conflict management systems in Indonesia tend to be conventional. The conception of the proposed information system is fundamentally developed from Johan Galtung’s Transcend Model on conflict management systems. Traditionally, conflict management systems use a legal formal approach and tend to neglect the usage of information technology. This software is able to display particular information in real time such as graphics and maps, which are directly linked to Google Maps. The conflict information system will allow decision-makers to observe the dynamics of religious social conflict behavior, to trace the sources of the conflict, and to make prompt decisions. This article attempts to introduce the software and how it works in real social and religious conflict, specifically in Yogyakarta, Indonesia.
