Citizens have the right and responsibility to have a voice in public decisions and actions that affect their lives, and to hold government and other power holders accountable for their actions and decisions.

Promoting Accountable Democracies is one of three new thematic courses at Coady International Institute. The program is for change leaders who are working to drive social change through citizen-led activism, policy advocacy, or holding governments, public agencies, and other duty bearers to account.

As a participant in this course, you will explore ways to engage citizens in deepening democratic practice and in promoting transparency, accountability, and participation in governance systems and structures.
