The Windfall of Post-authoritarian

  • Airlangga Pribadi Kusman


This chapter will talk about the intellectuals’ roles and positions in the transitional era since the beginning of the fall of Soeharto up to the post-authoritarian era. This era is organised by the rise of hope for the establishment of political participation, democracy, good governance, the corruption eradication and not least the law enforcement, which occurred through the development of democratic political institutions, market regulation up to the decentralisation process.
