Inequalities is inherent characteristic in dealing with border development. As a large archipelagic country, Indonesia still has so many homeworks in managing border areas. For years border areas have been marginalized from national development process. The inequalities could be seen in several aspects, such as a low level of public services availability; low quality and access of education; bad economic condition and high level of poverty. The scope of this paper is to explore some changes in Indonesian border management and development under Joko Widodo's administration, especially the efforts to eradicate inequalities. The method used in the research is qualitative approach through literature review and interviews. The result of this paper shows that Indonesian government under Joko Widodo's presidency has done some important policies to bring the social justice in border areas. However, they still have to encounter very substantial challenges and obstacles such as the problems of institutional and human resource capacity. Joko Widodo shows a very strong commitment to build border areas as good as other areas in Indonesia.
