Abstract

Recent literature affirms transparency as one of main strategies to eradicate corruption, while factual problems in Indonesia show that the corruption is remaining although the transparency is manifested. This paper aims at explaining why the transparency fails to support the corruption eradication in Indonesia as relationship between the two is not simple as it is. To make it manageable, the analysis focuses on the transparency within the implementation of a One Stop Service in the business permit process. This study employs a desk research over secondary data, including the Corruption Perception Index, Ease of Doing Business, Global Competitiveness Index, and government reports. It suggests that failing supports of the transparency to eradicate the corruption deal with certain problems as follows: inappropriate transparency, deficiency of complaint mechanism, the misuse of authority by local leader, the low awareness and permissiveness of the society that meet the moral hazard of the bureaucrats and the institutional problems within One Stop Service agency. To solve these problems, it should be considered to strengthen the capacity of the society through a building awareness to complain and to increase the capability of the bureaucrats to translate the transparency into concrete and workable implementation.
