In the after math political turmoil and the collapse of authoritarian New Order regime, dramatic and multi faceted changes have taken place in Indonesia while unresolved issues in administrative system remains. The role of the state and its relations with the bureaucracy and citizens are experiencing substantial transformation. There is a need to explain and understand what are the empirical elements of such transformation and how it might contribute to the general theory on public governance.
