Therefore, service delivery will improve and corruptionwill  decline. On  the  other  hand, more  decentralisation  has a  positive  impact  oncorruption, raising individual propensity to accept bribes due to an increasing anopportunities for corruption at local level. Some studies show that the implementationof decentralisation in Indonesia tends to an increasing in corruption at local level.However, some  local governments have an initiative  to addressing the problem ofcorruption through several approaches.

Keywords: Decentralisation, corruption, and local government.
