This publication looks at four types of social accountability initiatives to illustrate practices across contrasting domains of intervention, from local to international: a community-based initiative with citizen participation, a national development policy and planning process, a formalized state accountability process and an international policy process.
The paper pays special attention to information, the use of ICTs, contextual factors as urbanization and conflict, and to the impact on social inclusion and the Millennium Development Goals.
It also provides and assessment of the evidence available on the field and reflects on social accountability in the post MDGs development agenda.
