ODI event: Demand-side governance: are we overstating the claims on social accountability?

This event was the first of six discussions around the broader theme of ‘demanding accountability from the bottom-up: examining what works, what does not work, and why', reflecting on the four years of implementing Governance and Transparency Fund (GTF) programmes.  


The event considered how a number of GTF programmes and projects focus directly on building grassroots capacity to demand improvements in state provision of public goods, especially by hitherto marginalised groups (women, disabled people, youths).

The speakers and panellists were selected to provide a critical review of this theme before facilitating an open discussion among participants so that they can provide their experiences as well.
