How Do Donor-led Empowerment and Accountability Activities Take Scale into Account? Evidence from DFID Programmes in Contexts of Fragility, Conflict and Violence (Working Paper No. 536)Anderson, C., Fox, J., & Gaventa, J. - 2020 - IDS
Development donors invest significantly in governance reform, including in contexts characterised by conflict and fragility. However, there is relatively little comparative study of their change strategies, and little understanding of what works and why. This paper explores the strategies of six recent DFID-funded programmes in Mozambique, Myanmar, and Pakistan with empowerment and accountability aims. Document review and field interviews are used to analyse the application of multi-scalar...
Seeing the Combined Effects of Aid Programmes (No. 196; IDS Policy Briefing)Burge, R., Nadelman, R., McGee, R., … Anderson, C. - 2022 - IDS
Multiple aid agencies often try to support change in the same places, at the same time, and with similar actors. Surprisingly, their interactions and combined effects are rarely explored. This Policy Briefing describes findings from research conducted on recent aid programmes that overlapped in Mozambique, Nigeria, and Pakistan, and from a webinar with UK Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) advisors and practitioners. The research found three distinct categories of ‘interaction...
Supporting innovation and the use of technologies in accountability initiatives: lessons from Making All Voices Count (MAVC Learning Report)Edwards, D., Hudson, H., Anderson, C., … Brock, K. - 2018 - IDS

Appropriating technology for accountability: messages from Making All Voices Count [MAVC Research Report]McGee, R., Edwards, D., Hudson, H., … Feruglio, F. - 2018 - IDS
Making All Voices Count was a programme designed to solve the ‘grand challenge’ of creating more effective democratic governance and accountability around the world. It used funding from four donors to support the development and spread of innovative ideas for solving governance problems – many of them involving tools and platforms based on mobile phone and web technologies. Between 2013 and 2017, the programme made grants for innovation and scaling projects that aimed to amplify the voices...
Understanding Governance from the Margins: What Does It Mean In Practice?Barnes, Katrina, B., Katrina, Anderson, C., de Chassy, S., … Wazir, R. - 2021 - Institute of Development Studies (IDS)
What does governance look like ‘from below’ – from the perspectives of poor and marginalised households? How do patterns of conflict affect that? These were the questions at the heart of the Governance at the Margins research project. Over three years from 2017-2020 we worked to explore this through in-depth study in conflict-affected areas of Mozambique, Myanmar, and Pakistan. Our research teams interviewed the same people regularly over that time, finding out how they resolved problems and...
