Event Description

There is a lot of emphasis by donors on improving governance in public service delivery, in order to improve development effectiveness. Bottom-up approaches aim to engage citizens in participation, inclusion, transparency and accountability in the design and delivery of public services and institutions. Evidence from prominent single studies implemented in particular contexts has suggested that the bottom-up approaches to involve citizens in the governance of public services are not effective strategies. However, how generalizable is this finding, and what are the mechanisms through which citizen engagement can be effective?

An upcoming mixed-method systematic review focuses on interventions that promote citizen engagement in public service governance, through participatory and inclusive planning, community-based monitoring, and provision of information about rights and performance of public services. The authors assessed evidence from 50 impact evaluations and 39 additional qualitative documents on governance programmes in L&MICs. Hugh Waddington, the lead author of the review, will present the key findings and implications for policy and programmes.
