- This article was written based on the research results on social exchange networks in the peasant movement of Kalibakar, South of Malang. The Kalibakar peasant movement took place since the post-Japanese occupation, and to this day, the movement has not been finished. The Kalibakar peasant movement’s main objective is the reclaiming of former PTPN XII plantation land of Kalibakar covering ± 2,050 Ha, which is believed by farmers as the land of his ancestors. At present, de facto, more than 95% of the former plantation areas have been controlled by farmers. However, de jure, there is no evidence of farmers’ ownership over the land because the government is still considered it in the status of the dispute. The Kalibakar peasant movement is fluctuating, sometimes ups and downs. One of the factors that influence it is the absence of social networks that support the peasant movement. This case study aims to describe the dynamics of the social exchange network. The results showed that the Kalibakar peasant movement did not occur entirely in social exchange because what happened was a network of opportunity-taking or a network of opportunity-seeking. So, in the movement arena, there were no more scarce resources that could be contested, and the peasant movement became stagnant.
