A robust civil society is key to ensuring governments are responsive and accountable to their population. Civil society is growing exponentially in countries with weak governance to address gaps in service delivery and social protection. But how effective is civil society in achieving its goals? Are there new ways to understand and strengthen civil society? How can citizens and civil society work collaboratively with government to solve problems? Speakers from the World Bank’s Global Partnership for Social Accountability (GPSA) and other guests will attempt to answer these questions and more.
Join Aga Khan Foundation Canada and the Global Partnership for Social Accountability for a presentation and panel discussion on the current state of civil society and recommendations for new perspectives on future engagement. The seminar will also launch the GPSA report Social Accountability: What Does the Evidence Really Say? Paul Samson, Assistant Deputy Minister, Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development, will provide opening remarks.
