This report articulates three strategies by which the poorest and most marginalised have attempted to ensure accountability from national and global policymakers to local people.
Chapters in the report explore:
– Collective action and participatory research as strategies toward citizen-led accountability
– Engaging with multiple accountabilities in contexts of resource exploitation, environmental damage, and the social impacts of climate change
– Deliberation as a route to citizen-led accountability
It is a response to demands, articulated through the Participate initiative research conducted from 2012 to 2013 with extremely poor and marginalised groups, for greater participation and accountability in decision-making.
