Social Protection: Accountability. The Grassroots are Best Practice in Accountability: PASGR Policy Brief 4

This brief suggests that small self-help groups and membership associations are the most accountable as they are under close and constant scrutiny

Abstract

The official policy assumption that formal organisations are more accountable than informal groups is misleading. From research in Africa, this briefing suggests that small self-help groups and membership associations are the most accountable as but they are under the close and constant scrutiny of their own members and communities.
