Topic title

Decentralization and its impact on Corruption and Anti-Corruption Efforts in Sub-National Governance in Indonesia.

Topic description

I am interested in exploring the principal-agent relations in the sub-national government of Indonesia, where a strong network of corruption has been documented. To understand how these networks exercise their power for personal gain by influencing resource allocation and project implementation, the study will employ an anthropological approach to corruption. Additionally, the research will investigate how corruption networks adapt to new strategies dealing with SIPD, Indonesia’s new accountability mechanisms.
