The implementation of asymmetric decentralization in Indonesia since the new order era until after reform era brings an impact on how the quality of local governance may affect the result. While research on asymmetric decentralization has developed very significantly, only limited attention has been paid to the determinants of success, especially the role governance plays. </p> Sena Putra Prabujaya Bambang Supriyono M.R.
