ABSTRAK
Pasca konflik, Pemerintah Aceh telah melaksanakan berbagai kegiatan untuk pemberdayaan ekonomi masyarakat diwilayah pedesaan. Khusunya untuk mantan Kombatan Gerakan Aceh Merdeka dan masyarakat korban konflik di Kabupaten Aceh Timur, kegiatan pemberdayaan ekonomi yang dilakukan adalah memberikan bantuan kelapa sawit, sapi dan kambing kepada mereka dengan melibatkan berbagai lembaga termasuk lembaga swasta. Penelitian ini bertujuan untuk mengembangkan model pemberdayaan ekonomi masyarakat melalui integrasi antar komoditi dan sekaligus institusi. Penelitian ini menggunakan pendekatan kualitatif. Data dianalisis dalam tiga tahapan yaitu reduksi dan penyajian data serta penarikan kesimpulan. Hasil penelitian menunjukkan bahwa model integrasi sawit-sapi yang dilaksanakan oleh masyarakat tidak di dukung oleh integrasi antar institusi. Akibatnya program pemberdayaan tidak memberi dampak terhadap peningkatan percepatan ekonomi masyarakat secara optimal.
