U4: Overcoming the Pitfalls of Engaging Communities in Anti-Corruption Programmes

Effective engagement by communities is a crucial strategy for anti-corruption initiatives. However, encouraging involvement and civic mindedness at a local level can present challenges for donors and practitioners. Trust, the sense of ownership, and inclusion create and strengthen participation by enabling community members to express their pinions and expectations, and demand accountability from power holders. Feedback plays a pivotal role in successful projects by fostering dialogue between policymakers and citizens.
