Bureaucratic Corruptive Culture in Indonesia

Darmanto,Meita Istianda

Corruption in the government bureaucracy in Indonesia is an acute and difficult problem to eradicate where corruption is seen as a culture that is inherent in society. However, whether corruption as a culture or corruption is actually just a practice that violates the rules in the bureaucracy is an interesting problem to learn. The purpose of this study is to analyze corrupt practices in the government bureaucracy in Indonesia from a cultural perspective. The method used to analyze this research is descriptive qualitative by studying various relevant literature. The analysis shows that there is no relevant evidence that corruption in the government bureaucracy in Indonesia is considered a culture. Corruption is not a culture but a deviant behavior or practice by government bureaucratic apparatus. The author recommends that to eradicate corruption it is necessary to conduct anti-corruption socialization through early education, especially in elementary schools, so that the younger generation understands that corruption is an act of violation of the law that can be punished with severe penalties.
