Rukun tetangga

A rukun tetangga (abbrievated RT, literally "pillar of neighbours") is an administrative division of a village in Indonesia, under a rukun warga. The RT is the lowest administrative division of Indonesia.

The rukun tetangga operates through consultation in the framework of community service,[1] set by the village or villages.[2]

The local level of governance of rukun warga and rukun tetangga also includes the rukun kampung [3]

A rukun tetangga is chaired by a ketua RT elected by its citizens. An RT consists of a number of households (KK).

Most information about governance and functioning of the RT and RW is in Indonesian.[4][5] Some non-Indonesian anthropologists have written about the functions and issues.[6][7][8][9]
