Good Governance

Etymologically good is good and governance is governance, so good governance means good governance. Good governance is a way or a way to regulate the economic, social resources to establish or expand community (Risman, 2003).
Government or Government in English is defined as: the authoritative direction and administration of the affairs of men / women in the nation, state, sity, etc. Or in Indonesian means: briefing and administrative authority over the activities of people in a country, state, or city and so on (Sedermanyanti, 2009: 272).
While the term governance or in English. Governance is the act, fact, manner of governing, means: action, facts, patterns, and activity or government organization. Thus governance is an activity (process), as proposed by Kooiman (in Sedermanyanti, 2009) that governance is more of a series of processes of social interaction politics between administration with the community in various fields related to public interests and government intervention on these interests. “
The term governance does not only mean the government as an activity, but also implies the maintenance, management, direction, development and implementation could also mean government. It is therefore not surprising that there are terms of public governance, private governance, and others. Governance as a translation of the government, then developed and became popular as the government, while the so-called best practices of good governance (good governance) (Sedermanyanti, 2009).
According Rochman (in Widodo, 2001) concept of governance involves not just governments and the state, but also the role of various actors outside the government and the state, so that the parties involved are also very extensive. Governance is the mechanism of resource management involving the economic and social influence of the state sector and non-government sector in a collective activity.
While the Institute of Public Administration (2000) defines governance as the process of implementation of state power in implementing the provision of public goods and services. Further confirmed that when viewed in terms of functional aspects, governance can be reviewed on whether the government has to function effectively and efficiently in order to achieve the objectives that have been outlined or otherwise.
Good governance is a way or ways to organize and manage the economic, social resources to establish or develop a community that involves the influence of the state sector and non-government sector in a collective activity.
2.2.1 Good Governance as Reform Agenda
The spirit of political reform which began rolling in Indonesia since 1997 is the reversal of the characteristics of a political order that has been patterned for decades. Centralism governance wants to be reversed into a decentralized structure, and authoritarianism want reversed into a democratic system of government. Kesemenamenaan ruling regime wants to be replaced with pro regime against the people. Although Desire to make changes in this direction has been widespread, change itself can not walk by itself. Such changes can only be understood as the result of push and pull between the main political actors. It is very obvious that we understand the reform process of transition towards democratic frameworks.
This reform can not be programmed as a technocratic government. The problem is, in many respects, however, lies with the government itself. At the formal level berubahan has begun to spread, but at the level of substantive changes are still not significant. The extent of the tug explains why that happens is half-hearted reforms.
Terlembaganya a dream for good governance (local good governance) to the fore along with the abundance of lawsuits against governmental administration centralized and authoritarian leadership is practiced during the New Order. The size of today’s popular to see whether or not the government administration are formulated based on the ideals of autonomy and democracy.
Jargon good governance was only recently gained popularity, but that does not mean that during the New Order did not have the concept of good governance. The question, is what time it is understood as good governance is now regarded as obsolete patterns (Santoso, 2000).
In short, political reform at the local level involves important processes that are not easily seen, that did reinterpretation of the concept of governance. In relation to this, there are some important things that need to be noted.
1. First, the concept of governance has to be build in the minds and the rules of governance. Nevertheless, it does not mean that there are concepts that can be run properly. Problems of governance in the New Order era, basically not only rooted in the concept of quality alone, but also on the inability to realize these concepts.
2. Second, the meaning of good governance while the old version had much to lose popularity, meaning the concept of good governance in the new version is still confusing. Bias meaning of the concept of good governance is becoming difficult circumvented when the concept of ‘good governance’ itself actually, practically, acted as a stigma in de-legitimasikan centralism and authoritarianism institutionalized in the New Order era. Stigmatic role actually the concept of good governance can not be separated from the very swift currents perwacanaan within the framework of neo-liberal thinking, which basically tigak too agree with the central role of the state.
3. Third, the meaning of the concept of good governance is currently happening in an atmosphere where the hegemonic discourse rooted in liberalism looks very thick. Liberalism understood as a battering ram door authoritarianism, but there is still a big question whether it would be institutionalized. In an atmosphere where the hegemony of liberal ideology in the reform era is very strong, the measure of good and bad governance can shift from autonomy and democracy, being liberal or not. Good governance-style liberal pattern may be instituted if the public and officials alike liberating themselves wholeheartedly. The tendency is sabotage against liberalism in the sense that people want enaknya have freedom, but do not want to bear persyarakat-requirement for the establishment of the liberal system. For example, the widespread demonstrations are a sign of a good use of liberal political climate, but respect for the rights of others are not protected when doing so.
2.2.2 Background The emergence of Good Governance
Three things the background for the emergence of good governance, namely: (Sedarmayanti, 2009)
1. Emerging phenomenon called Samuel P. Huntington as a wave of global democratization. This wave first appeared in South Korea and in several Latin American countries that immerses bureaucratic authoritarian politics in the decade of the 1980s and the subsequent sweep of socialism in Europe in the early decades of the 1990s.
2. The occurrence of the systematic destruction of a variety of institutional basis for the management of the distribution of economic resources among the majority of the third world. Business and political institutions are supposed to have different management principles have been turned into allies and doubled the growth of cronyism. Transparency, public accountability and allocation of economic resources fail to thrive in the business world.
3. The accumulation of failures initiated structural adjustment programs of the IMF and the World Bank. The program has and adheres to the basic assumption that the state is the only institution of inhibiting the process of economic globalization.
