Our reform efforts strike a balance between strengthening capacity from within, and applying pressure from without.
To ensure the effectiveness of our programs, we work on two fronts: building the internal capacity of state institutions, while at the same time increasing the ability of civil society to monitor these same institutions and the broader reform process.
Our support to the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) illustrates this approach:
Strengthening the capacity of the KPK
Enhancing pressure from civil society
|We supported the selection and recruitment of the KPK Commissioners in both 2003 and 2007||Provided support to Judicial Watch to oversee the recruitment process, then helped develop the KPK’s roadmap for 2007-2011, which was adopted by the Commissioners|
|Facilitated training of the KPK’s investigators in the use of search warrants, 2005-2006||Supported Judicial Watch to monitor KPK activities and then established a Standard Operating Procedure|
|Supported a gap analysis of the UN Convention against Corruption principles and their implementation in Indonesia||Worked with the Civil Society Anti Corruption Movement to conduct periodic corruption assessment and to review compliance with the UNCAC principles|
Public Awareness and Advocacy
The Partnership has also been very effective in generating public awareness about key issues such as Corruption, Millennium Development Goals, Forest Governance and Voter Education.
The Partnership increases its effectiveness through in-depth involvement with a range of stakeholders. We are committed to involving our implementing partners and our beneficiaries in the design and the evaluation of our programs.
During the 2000 – 2009 period, the number of primary stakeholders affected by our programs is approximately as follows:
|CSOs & Civil Society||162|
|Academic & Research Institutions||33|
|State Auxiliary Bodies||9|
One example of our approach is the General Election program in 2009: the Partnership worked with the General Election Commission (KPU), the Election Monitoring Body (Bawaslu), United Nations Development Programme, the Danish Embassy, CSOs for Election Oversight monitoring, female legislative candidates, women’s groups, media, and local CSOs.
This assistance saw the development of 46 KPU Decree formulations and also increased the number of female legislators at national level by 8% and regional level by 18% in our areas of intervention.
