This review analyses open government principles and practices in Indonesia, highlighting opportunities for - as well as barriers to - achieving the country’s public governance reforms. It covers a wide range of topics, including the co-ordination of open government reforms by the centre of government, citizen engagement mechanisms, anti-corruption and integrity, digital government and open government data, budget transparency, public sector innovation, and the link between open government reforms and the UN Sustainable Development Goals. It provides concrete recommendations on how to further strengthen and embed openness in policy making at all levels of government, drawing on the best experiences of OECD countries.



From transparency and participation to integrity in Indonesia

Integrity and the fight against corruption remain important issues in Indonesia. This chapter will review the country’s integrity framework and the interplay between the public sector and citizens in fostering a culture of integrity. Specifically, it will look at the areas of participation in the policy cycle, civic oversight and awareness raising. While Indonesia has taken significant steps to prevent corruption through transparency and open government measures, the main challenge remains building a culture of integrity in the public sector and throughout all levels of society. Accordingly, the chapter will provide recommendations discussing how Indonesia can further improve upon the implementation, effectiveness and compliance of its good policies and practices already in place.
