- Kendeng Mountain conflict was handled by the Indonesian Government by forming a SEA team. This government policy was considered appropriate considering that the benefits of SEA have been recognized and are increasingly being adopted in Europe and Asia. However, the existence of the SEA did not necessarily resolve the Kendeng conflict. The government, both in the liberal and socialist perspectives which should be the mediator of the conflict between the private sector and the community, is considered to be absent for the community against Cement. Specifically, through a cultural approach, the Kendeng Mountain conflict occurs because of a high-power distance, where public participation is low in the formulation of government policies, plans, and programs. The research method was through explanatory research by conducting interviews and FGDs as primary data. This research has also collected the SEA, BPS, and Omah Kendeng reports, also the government website as supporting data. Using explanation building, this research found that central authority has formed a mental programming that encourages the bureaucracy of paternalism. In this condition, environmental institutions have low status in the bureaucracy and have little power or authority. Meanwhile, the power and authority are needed for an effective EIA. In addition, there are cultural and technical factors that also cause low public participation, including information, communication and evaluation issues.
