Title: Decentralization : the China and Indonesia experiences.

Abstract: In this paper, we would like to attempt to address the puzzle that if decentralization has been widely regarded as a tool to promote the democratization process in non-democratic countries and improve welfare at local level, why some of the decentralization experiences in China and Indonesia do not seem to confirm that. Donor agencies’ push for adoption of decentralization policies in developing countries indiscriminately, which forms an important part of policies prescribed in “Washington Consensus”, seem to fall into the trap of mistaking decentralization as a political development end goal, instead of a means towards further political development.
