Examining the anti-corruption movement in Indonesia, this paper will give a review of the topic. The primary goal of this analysis is to discover whether or not e-government and social media can serve as an efficient weapon in the fight against corruption in Indonesian village budgets. This research evaluates corruption from several behavioral angles. To evaluate the efficacy of social media and e-government in combating corruption in Indonesia's village funds, researchers conducted a comprehensive literature review and normative juridical analysis using a conceptual approach. The study demonstrates that ICT's rapid expansion and improvement in Indonesia has had far-reaching consequences. The participants share and discuss corruption-related news and information. Because traditional punishment-oriented tactics have not been effective in eradicating corruption in Indonesia, incorporating technology into future efforts to do so might boost the likelihood of success.
