I’ll kick the blog off with a photo from an anti-corruption workshop held by the Jakarta-based NGO Masyarakat Transparansi Indonesia (MTI) or the Indonesian Society for Transparency that I attended in May 2011. Such workshops are often held by national NGOs at the district level. Generally they focus on building the necessary accounting and legal skills so that local NGOs can monitor local government budgets and identify possible incidents of corruption. They also help to reinvigorate local movements when times are tough. MTI’s website is available here. Thanks to Jamal for inviting me along.
