The phenomenon of self-regulation or swatata observed in almost all aspects of daily life, from physical systems, chemistry, biology, psychology, culture and system of government. Swatata system is defined as a spontaneous emergence of new structures and new forms of behavior in open systems far from equilibrium, characterized by rounds of internal feedback and nonlinear. Random changes encourage swatata, allowing exploration of new space of certain condition.
On swatata system, we are dealing with complex systems that behave in simple way. When the country does not (yet) really present in the midst of society, then the swatata system was the one who actually existed so far.
Penabulu believes that an understanding of the swatata system will become a fertile space for strengthening public accountability. One important element in the strengthening of public accountability is the public’s right to obtain information. The right of every citizen to obtain relevant information will also improve the quality of community involvement in public decision-making process and encourage the government to be more accountable. Participation or community involvement does not mean much without a guarantee of public disclosure that provides a participation of citizens in governance (social participation), the accountability of government to citizens (social responsibility), citizen support on the course of government (social support), and the control and supervision of residents against government actions (social control).
The program is dedicated to the development of a collaborative effort in creating the best conditions for regional development at the district/city to the village level by encouraging governments to be more open in presenting public information for citizens, bridge or building a model of the channel information and dialogue itself, as well as enhance critical understanding and the analytical capacity of community on public information.
The program will conduct various studies and research, especially for the discovery of regional potential; facilitation of planning processes and local-level policy development, open literacy development, development equal dialogue forum between government and citizens, and especially with the development of collaborative interface platform that embodies the current openness and dialogue on public information by maximizing the use of information and communication technology.
