Abstract

Village government as one of the public institutions must implement public information openness on all its activities based on Law no.14 Year 2008 concerning public information openness and Village Law No. 6 Year 2014. This study used cognitive dissonance theory to analyze the meaning of public information openness on village government officials in Central Java. This research aimed at finding the meaning of messages conveyed by the village government about public information openness. Moreover, this research used qualitative approach through case study method. In addition, research data are obtained through interviews, focus group discussions and observations. Meanwhile, post positivism paradigm was used to analyze all the findings of this study. The findings of this study indicate that human resources working in the village government have not completely understood the meaning of information openness. This may due to a lack of socialization and information on public information openness. Many of them interpreted it differently. Thus, there were several village officials conducting a violation in information openness.
