Center for Anticorruption Studies (PUKAT)
Corruption in Indonesia has been so rampant. It covered on almost all sectors of national and state life. Almost certainly, there is not a single realm that is untouched by corruption, be it the political, economic, social, cultural and even religious realm. In terms of effects, the damage caused by it is also so real. Starting from the leakage of the state budget (as well as losses) in large numbers to poverty that ensnares most citizens. Such damages are, more or less, the impact (directly or indirectly) of corruption. As a result, corruption is the root of evil.
Assuming that the crime of corruption in Indonesia is very escalative and systemic and consequently massive, any attempts at resistance and shock theraphy against corruption by the anti-corruption movement must be structured and systematic. One of the ways to systematize the anti-corruption movement is to identify the role and position that can be played by each element of the anti-corruption movement appropriately. Through this way, every element of the anti-corruption movement will be able to contribute to the optimal eradication of corruption, by course, not ruling out synergy and collaboration work between elements of the anti-corruption movement. Such assumptions also apply to UGM law faculty, as one of the "forces of the moral movement" in the grand narrative of the anti-corruption movement. That is, if the law school wants to optimize its involvement in efforts to fight corruption, then it must precisely identify the role and position.
With regard to UGM Law Faculty, the identification of strategic roles and positions in the scenario of war on corruption seems to not be far from its capacity, so far as part of a university that carries out the functions and missions of TRI DHARMA in the field of education, research, and devotion. It is in this context and perspective that the establishment of the Center for Anti-Corruption Studies (PUKAT KORUPSI) finds its urgency and strategic value. Because the presence of this institution will be the right answer to the need for optimization of roles and positions in the anti-corruption movement. From the momentum aspect, the initiation of its formation occurred along with the consolidation of the network of law faculties throughout Indonesia for the anti-corruption movement at the Anti Corruption Summit (ACS) which was planned to be held on August 11-13, 2005. Not to mention if taking into account the results of the Focused Group Discussion (FGD) I and II cooperation body (BKS) of law faculties throughout Indonesia, which was held on June 22 and July 15, 2005 at jogja Plasa hotel, which mentioned that THE CORRUPTION DIRECTORATE of LAW FACULTY OF UGM, in addition to having its own anti-corruption programs, will also be the joint secretariat and coordinator of anti-corruption study centers that will also be formed in each law faculty throughout Indonesia.
