Intellectuals in the Rebuilding of Political Power in Post-authoritarian Indonesia

Chapter

Abstract

This chapter explains the role and contribution of intellectuals in the implementation of the good governance agenda in East Java and Surabaya, especially in the development programs during post-election of the post-Suharto era. During that period, the intellectuals present legitimacy towards the program implementation by giving a sort of scientific claims and impartial knowledge on the implementation of a good governance-based development program. In reality, however, the knowledge-based argument of good governance reinforces the dominant power’s social position of local politics-businesses alliances that utilise public resources to maintain their economic power and interests, rather than encouraging the realisation of a clean and transparent-sound government.
