Analyzing Conflict of Interest in National Sports Organization: Case of the Indonesian National Olympic Committee and the Indonesian Sports Committee
Advisor: Dr. Till Müller Schöll
The primary objective of this master’s thesis is to analyze the conflict of interest between the Indonesian sports committee (KONI) and the National Olympic Committee (KOI), which become barriers in implementing the reunification policy. This research framework has benefited from Scharpf’s Actor-Centered Institutionalism to meticulously examining the interaction between KONI and KOI as well as other stakeholders in the Indonesian sports system. Secondarily, this paper depicts the perception of each institution during the conflict. The methods for data collection were semi-structured interviews. The findings of the interviews then further analyzed with thematic coding to portray the interaction between actors and then proceed to the quantitative survey to target a more considerable amount of participants. Overall, the possibility of redistribution of outcome and financial instability have primarily influenced the preference of KONI and KOI in regards to reunification.
