New book: Social Accountability in Africa

The latest publication from Idasa and the Affiliated Network for Social Accountability (ANSA):

Social Accountability in Africa: Practitioners’ Experiences and Lessons

Edited by Mario Claasen & Carmen Alpín-Lardiés

This book is a collection of case studies from Africa on social accountability. This book attempts to build a consolidated body of knowledge on social accountability efforts across the continent. The case studies are diverse
and present unique approaches to how social accountability strategies and interventions are implemented within different countries.

Social Accountability in Africa is available at Lobby Books for R200.00

The book is written by practitioners, for practitioners, providing first-hand experience of designing and implementing social accountability initiatives and the challenges, methods and successes each one presents.

· While most research focuses on the role of citizens and civil society organisations in promoting accountability, this book places a greater emphasis on joint state-civil society initiatives.

· While social accountability initiatives are known mostly only in their own countries, and few African campaigns are documented, this book fills this gap by covering different approaches within a wide array of African
countries.

To overcome language and cultural barriers that have prevented practitioners in the African sub-regions from learning from each other, this book will be translated into French and disseminated widely in Francophone Africa.

The Affiliated Network for Social Accountability in Africa (ANSA-Africa) supports the engagement of citizens and civil society in building more effective states through social accountability approaches.
