For Support Of The Accountability Research Center’s Joint Research With Social Accountability Groups

Overview
This grant will support the Accountability Research Center at American University. The Center conducts action research in partnership with civil society organizations that are testing various approaches to expand citizens’ access to and use of information to identify gaps in service provision and to demand improvements. Their research focuses on power dynamics, and whether and how service providers and government decision makers are responsive to these demands. The Center’s activities aim to build the capacity and create channels for innovative civil society organizations from low- and middle-income countries to interrogate and share what they are learning within the transparency, participation, and accountability field and with other global development practitioners.
