About The Partnership

Kemitraan at a glance      WHAT IS KEMITRAAN ?

The Partnership for Governance Reform, or Kemitraan, was established in 2000 following Indonesia’s first free and fair elections for two generations in 1999. These historic elections represented an important step towards moving Indonesia beyond its authoritarian past and towards its democratic future. Kemitraan was established as a multi-donor trust fund and managed by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). Kemitraan was founded and led by a number of prominent Indonesian leaders from the government, civil society and the private sector to promote principles of good governance.

In 2003 Kemitraan became an independent legal entity, being registered as a non-for-profit civil law association. At this time it concurrently remained a UNDP managed program until the end of 2009.

Since the beginning of 2010 Kemitraan has assumed full fiduciary responsibility and accountability for its programs and developments.

PROMOTING GOOD GOVERNANCE

BETWEEN

STATE, MARKET AND CIVIL SOCIETY

OUR PURPOSE

“Good governance is participatory, consensus-oriented, accountable, transparent, responsive, effective and efficient, equitable and inclusive and follows the rule of law. It assures that corruption is minimized, the views of minorities are taken into account and that the voices of the most vulnerable in society are heard in decision-making.”

Our vision is to establish fair, democratic, and sustainable governance that improves the welfare of Indonesians.

Our mission is to disseminate, advance, and institutionalize the principles of good governance, to government, civil society and business sectors. Good governance supports citizens and human rights, gender balance, the socially and economically marginalized, and environmental sustainability.

Kemitraan works on three fronts:

  • To support initiatives focused on the transformation of governance within  public institutions – building capacity from within.
  • Strengthening the capacity of civil society, the private sector and other non-state groups to demand and promotegovernance reform – applying pressure from without.
  • To synergizeand harmonize governance reform activities and to drive transformation via a network of partnerships – the multi-stakeholder approach.
