Abstract


Eradication of corruption has become one of the main agendas of the Indonesian Government after reform. Various efforts have been made by power holders, such as the executive, legislative, and judiciary,to prevent and eradicate criminal acts of corruption. Those efforts, however, have not been entirely effective. Based on KPK’s Annual Report 2016 and Statistics Bulletin of Anti Money Laundering and Financing of Terrorism for the period May 2017, the number of corruption cases is getting increased. Cultural approaches can become important alternative in the prevention and eradication of corruption. One ofthem is through Javanese culture in Serat Tripama. Some important lessons that can be taken from the cultural values are (1) sabarang polah kang nora jujur, yen kabunjur sayekti kojur tan becik (all dishonest actions will lead to badness), (2) rationalization to justify an act although he himself actually knows that it is wrong and leads to destruction, (3) Ing wurine yen at durung tuwayuh, Angurta aja ngabdi. Becik ngidunga karuhan aja age-age ngabdi (if you are not sincere, you had better do nothing and no devotion.)
