Abstract

In May 1998 Soeharto stepped down from the presidency of the Republic of Indonesia; his resignation had been strongly demanded, especially by university students in Jakarta. Since then decentralization has been promoted rapidly, encompassing changes in laws, administration and fiscal management. Changes in response to the decentralization measures occurred in various ways.
