Research indicates that the success of legislative ethics reforms, such as codes of ethics and codes of conduct, depends on whether the members of the legislature have homogeneous ethical standards. A survey conducted in the Indonesian legislature shows that the members' standards are far from homogenous and are not applied consistently across issues. If there is a link between homogeneity of ethical standards and the success of conduct codes, a code is not likely to be adopted and successfully enforced in Indonesia.
