On December 16th, 2016, with threats to democratic checks and balances on the rise worldwide, Root Change, Chemonics, Global Integrity, and the International Budget Partnership hosted an event at the OpenGov Hub: Understanding and Operationalizing an Accountability Ecosystems Approach.
We aimed to do three things:
Provide an introduction to the conceptual framework underpinning accountability ecosystems;
Introduce the audience to a few examples of how practitioners in different contexts are already engaging with those concepts;
Engage session participants in reflecting on and further exploring the features and implications of an ecosystems approach.
