Abstract

This paper overviews governance issues in Indonesia and Korea from a comparative perspective. To do so, the WGI (World Governance Index) developed by the World Bank is employed for a more objective and consistent comparison between the two countries. WGI consists of six dimensions of voice and accountability, political stability and absence of violence, government effectiveness, regulatory quality, rule of law, and control of corruption. The two countries are analyzed and compared by each dimension individually. The paper also examines the operational definition of governance and the rationale of WGI before getting into the analysis of comparative governance issues for the two countries. The point of the paper is not to draw any concluding remarks or policy suggestions, but rather to examine the differences and similarities between two governance systems via a variety of governance dimensions.
