We need to talk about the passive-aggressive culture in government (Opinion).  If accountability is a fear, then measures can be taken to distribute ownership and manage risk, such as clearly articulating contract milestones and partner responsibilities, and building risk-mitigation strategies into project plans. Risk-management and accountability should be built into processes so that they become usual to ways of doing things, rather than scary.

Discourse: We must not be defeated by corrupt people.  In an interview with The Jakarta Post, Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) deputy chairman Laode Muhammad Syarif discussed the legacy to be left by the current commission to the country, his work as the antigraft body’s leader and terror attacks against him and other KPK employees.
