Mainstreaming Social Accountability in Oxfam’s Regional Change Strategies in East Asia

On September 2009, ANSA-EAP partnered with Oxfam Great Britain (OGB)-East Asia to boost OGB’s efforts in the region in “building accountable and effective governments that enable the poorest, most marginalized, and vulnerable women and men in East Asia to claim their rights and to access quality services and economic opportunities.” The partnership aims to mainstream social accountability in OGB-East Asia’s governance framework for action, change strategies, approaches, key program areas, and ways of working.

Social accountability involves organized and capable citizen groups engaging government and other duty bearers in a constructive and sustained manner to hold the latter accountable for their actions and performance.
