Abstract

Indonesia, like many other countries across the world, is now dealing with shocks and problems that are not simply overcome due to the COVID-19 epidemic. Under these circumstances, the government’s ability to cope with a pandemic was put to the test in front of the public. The COVID-19 epidemic has had a favorable effect on Indonesia’s government development. This epidemic is primarily a catalyst for the implementation of open government policies that promote principle-based governance. The basic concept is that it is run with openness, involvement, and cooperation. This study employed the analysis of the grand theory of open government and a qualitative approach for it is a literature study research. The results of the study indicate that in managing Covid-19 in Indonesia, several aspects need to be criticized, including transparency, in which the data provided by the government regarding Covid-19 are not real-time and appropriate with field conditions. Furthermore, public participation generally only involves the community at the implementation stage of government decisions such as social distancing, wearing masks, washing hands frequently, not traveling, and so on. However, the concept of open government participation should be further interpreted, including in the political process of policymaking. However, it seems that it has not been fully implemented in Indonesia. Finally, concerning collaboration, the government invites all elements of society to jointly manage the Covid-19 pandemic. This act tends to be successful because many non-government parties are participating in controlling the bad situation caused by Covid-19.
