What do local citizens understand by ‘accountability’? How do local activists mobilize fellow citizens? How do they get those in power to commit to providing the information/service? This hybrid seminar answers these questions and more, citing findings on social accountability initiatives in Morocco, Tunisia and Lebanon.

After more than a decade since the 'Arab Spring', it’s time to review efforts to strengthen relations between citizens and their (local) governments. This seminar will present and discuss research findings on social accountability initiatives in Morocco, Tunisia, and Lebanon. We aim to answer the research question: 'What does accountability look like for the people on the ground?'.

Students and colleagues of participating universities, as well as researchers and practitioners around the world are welcomed to join this event to critically reflect on the findings and what they mean for policymaking and development practice, as well as future research.

This project was made possible thanks to a Research Innovation Facility (RIF) grant from the ISS and support by the Centre of Expertise on Global Governance at The Hague University of Applied Science and Erasmus University College.
