Using 2006 to 2009 data of 27 banks listed in Indonesia Stock Exchange is as research sample. Board, Family and Foreign Ownership as an internal Corporate Governance mechanism and Audit Quality is a proxy for external mechanism. Moderated Regression Analysis is applied. The result shows that there is no role of Corporate Governance in pre-global financial crisis. In addition, this study documented that the role of Corporate Governance practices is poor during global financial crisis 2008, especially 2009.
