The Social Accountability: A Critical Review and the Way Forward policy lab provides a critical review of social accountability efforts, highlighting the approaches, challenges, successes and potential ways forward in the most challenging of environments. Social accountability in fragile and conflict-affected states is a relatively new phenomenon in governance discourse. It has emerged with the lessons that top-down anti-corruption approaches have often failed. With increasing support to fragile and conflict affected states, efforts to build accountability and trust and strengthen the social contract between state and society in the wake of crisis are needed.
