Abstract

An end to KKN--the Indonesian acronym for corruption, collusion and nepotism--is currently one of the demands of Indonesia's growing reform movement. This is not the first time corruption has been on the political agenda in Indonesia; indeed, Suharto came to power promising to end corruption. Tackling corruption, however, was not one of the priorities of the Suharto regime and under Suharto KKN thrived while protesting voices were silenced. This article examines the political, economic and cultural conditions which have allowed corruption to flourish in Indonesia and concludes by considering whether the new political mood in the country since the fall of Suharto offers hope for a new, more corruption-free Indonesia.
