A rukun warga (abbreviated RW, literally "pillar of residents") is an administrative division of Indonesia under the village or kelurahan (or under: dusun or village). Rukun warga not including the division of administration[clarification needed], and the formation of local communities is through consultation in the framework of community service set by the village or villages. An RW is further divided into rukun tetangga (RT). Most information about governance and functioning of the RW and RT is in Indonesian.[1][2] Some non-Indonesian anthropologists have written about the functions and issues of the RW.[3][4][5][6]
