Abstract

The Yogyakarta Ombudsman was established in 2005 as the first Local Ombudsman in Indonesia. Its introduction forms part of the democratic reforms aimed at tackling the problem of corruption within the bureaucracy. This article examines the Local Ombudsman’s first year of operation, and asks whether it is addressing corruption and promoting good governance as hoped.

Keywords: Indonesia, good governance, law, ombudsman
