About

The Accountability Lab is an independent, non-profit organization that finds, validates and supports new answers to problems of accountability in the developing world. The Lab acts as a sounding board, listening to, analyzing and reflecting upon accountability concerns; as an independent interface, engaging relevant actors across contexts and issues; and as an operational hub, catalyzing innovative, collaborative and sustainable accountability practices. Through this approach, the Lab bolsters efforts to address the causes rather than the symptoms of poverty, exclusion and insecurity. Visit the website here.

    I work in the international sphere. Accountability Lab is intriguing and inspiring. I want to read the rest of the blogs. The focus on corruption as enemy #1 to true progress in national development is a good one; it is an issue I deal with regularly as it manifests itself in my little realm of interactions. These blogs strengthen my clarity about that and my resolve in how I relate to my participation. Okay–having said all of that, I want to know more about Accountability Lab, who writes the blogs and who sponsors this site that what your About tells. Why so vague? –Steve
