Partnerships are at the core of ARC’s approach. Our partners are directly engaged in organizing citizens and reforming policy to transform governance and build more inclusive societies. ARC works with our partners to learn from their experiences and inform global agendas that advance transparent, participatory, and accountable governance.
ARC engages with a wide range of civil society thinkers, activists, practitioners, policy reformers, and academics working on accountability in many sectors and geographies. Through extensive dialogue with partners and collaborators, we co-design exploratory research that is relevant for their strategies and can contribute to international thinking about how change happens.
ARC publications enable practitioners and researchers to share grounded experiences and analytical insights to inform action, learning, and research about transparency, participation, and accountability.
