This research is financially supported by the Directorate General of Higher Education, Universitas Gadjah Mada, and Utrecht University.
The theme of his Ph.D. is about reducing bureau-pathology on public procurement in Indonesia from two perspectives: selected principles of good governance (transparency, equality, and accountability) and comparative public procurement laws of the Netherlands and the United Kingdom. Having regard that public contract is an intertwined issue; although his research focuses on administrative law, the research also discusses the issue of business (competition) law and criminal (anti-corruption) law.
