Closing the Feedback Loop: Can Technology Bridge the Accountability Gap?

Bjom-Soren Gigler and Savita Bailur (editors) : 2014

The report brings together new evidence from leading academics and practitioners on the effects of technology-enabled citizen engagement. The
report aims to address four questions: (1) How do new technologies empower communities through participation, transparency, and accountability? (2) Are technologies an accelerator for closing the accountability gap? (3) Under what conditions does this occur? (4) What are the experiences and lessons learned from existing grassroots innovators
and donor-supported citizen engagement and crowd-sourcing programs, and how can these programs be replicated or scaled up?
