Technologies for transparency and accountability

Making All Voices Count works across a number of overlapping and mutually reinforcing thematic areas. Many of the projects we support are not easily categorised by theme: some fall into more than one of our thematic areas, while some are not quite a natural fit for any of them.

Projects under the theme of technologies for transparency and accountability are using a wide range and mixture of different technologies to leverage citizen engagement for more responsive and accountable governance – from interactive voices response surveys and online crowdsourcing platforms to video and radio.

Research under this themes deepens our understanding of the role that these technologies play in citizen voice and transparency for achieving accountable and responsive governance.
