COURSE SUMMARY

This course is part of a World Bank Institute learning program on Accountable Governance. The learning program includes courses on social accountability theory, tools, and strategy; and it will later be adapted to specific sectors such as extractive industries, procurement reform, and others. Courses drawn from the material contained in this learning program are delivered in partnership with WBI partner institutions, which adapt and modify the material in order to best match local context and learning needs.

While the first course in the program focuses on the theory and key concepts underpinning the idea of social accountability, in this course the focus will be on the "how-to" of social accountability by providing an introduction to some of the most commonly-used social accountability tools. These tools have been used by practitioners around the globe to exact greater accountability from governments and to help citizens and civil society organizations engage with the state in a more productive and effective fashion.
