Abstract
North Kalimantan shares the borderline with Malaysia in Nunukan and Malinau regency. However, the condition of the border area residents in those areas is marked with severe underdevelopment. Responding to the issue, Indonesian border policy began to adopt an economic and environmental approach besides the traditional security approach which emphasizing military presence in the border area. The intention is to boost the economy and increase the prosperity of the border area residents. Nevertheless, this article argues that the Indonesian government needs to include the societal security approach in the policy as the people who live in the border area have their unique customs and traditions that could be at odds with the current policy. The adoption of the societal security approach will complete the picture of the North Kalimantan border policy and could go hand in hand with other approaches as a border development program.
