the existence of the Indonesian Archipelago (ALKI) towards the ideals of the world maritime axis launched by Jokowi. The search for data and interviews confirms that ALKI is contrary to the concept of the world maritime axis. The simple premise is that the maritime will always be present in the foreign sea traffic activities as a result of Indonesia’s desire to become an open country (free sea). It also shows an insult to the sovereignty of a nation that aspires to be the world’s maritime axis. Using Marine Strength Theory by Alfred T. Mahan, Jean Bodin’s concept of sovereignty to examine the contradictions of the existence of ALKI in conceptualizing the world’s maritime axis, the trend of results shows that first, the existence of ALKI actually endangers the aspirations of the world maritime axis; second, the archipelagic insights described in ALKI contradict the archipelagic insights implicit in Indonesia’s maritime doctrine; third, ALKI divides maritime forces that must be united (unity); fourth, Indonesia is at the level of civilization that is not ready to become the world’s maritime axis; fifth, ALKI based on UNCLOS 1982 contradicts the concept of sovereignty respected by the Indonesian people as the dignity of the nation.
