Abstract

The new democratic government of Indonesia implements the performance measurement system for public organization under President Decree in 1999. The policy has an ultimate goal to make organization funded by state budget accountable to their stakeholders. The objective of this research paper reconsiders the flaw of performance measurement implementation from local government perspective. Research is based on dimensions of accountability proposed by Koppel (2005) and analyses through quantitative method by questionnaire survey for data collection which distributed to respondents from various Bandung cities’ civil servants. Significant relations are found only on responsibility dimensions but not for transparency, liability, controllability and responsiveness. Though performance measurement runs more than a decade at local level however it is not implemented comprehensively. It is merely recognized as rhetoric vertical-hierarchy accountability from the sub-ordinate to the upper level. The local bureaucrat put organizational measurement as one of their obligatory tasks rather than realize on the importance and the value of performance measurement itself. The paper concludes with a suggestion for a future research which should deeply investigate on the micro level of the local public organization units, localized performance model which is concerned on local government’s nature regarding the institutional and individual capacity; integrating internal and external accountability in the performance measurement process and enhancing monitoring mechanism for result achievement.

Rights-based approach is the concept representing the virtual parallel of human development and human rights. As the national budget is the spinal column of the economic development of a country, it is important to make a rights-based analysis of it. The present work is aimed at making a comparative analysis between the budget components and the central attributes of rights-based approach. The effort, even though extremely problematic in the light of the structural order of the work, is also to give a conceptual view of a rights-based budget. The study further considers the basic features of rights-based approach as the goals and the budget features as the means. Subsequently, this paper shows that to what extent the means are successful in achieving the goals.

Abstract

Recently, financial inclusion has become a key strategy for developing to enhance economic and financial development. However, a recommendation that banks should contain systemic risk and maintain their stability as important lesson from recent global financial crisis, puzzles the concordance between financial inclusion and financial stability. Few empirical studies investigated both negative and relationships suggested by recent literatures between stability and inclusion. This study used Generalized Method of Moments for dynamic panel data to explore such a relationship in 35 Sub-Saharan African countries for the period 2004-2011. The variables utilized are bank-z score for financial stability; outstanding deposits with and outstanding loan from commercial banks commercial banks for financial inclusion; and GDP per capita, inflation domestic credit provided to private sector by banks, and financial crisis are used as control variables. The findings show that outstanding deposits with commercial banks negatively affect financial stability. This implies that deposit accounts held with the banks are less diversified in SSA. Outstanding loans from commercial banks have a positive role on financial stability. In terms of controlling variables greater GDP per capita helps financial stability while inflation, financial crisis, and credit to private sector have adverse effect of financial stability.
