Research on cases of civic action and citizen participation

by

I would like to share with you this announcement for a research project carried out by Shaazka Beyerle, Senior Advisor with the International Center on Nonviolent Conflict. You may remember her presentation at the 13th IACC in Athens when this blog was started:

“For the first time, an in-depth, international research and book project is documenting and studying cases of citizen participation and nonviolent civic action to fight corruption, in order to identify general lessons learned and best practices. The focus is on what people – organized together, exerting their collective power–are doing to fight corruption either at the local or national levels.

The project is examining the skills, strategies, objectives, and demands of nonviolent civic campaigns and movements, rather than the phenomenon of corruption itself, or the conditions under which it occurs.

DO YOU KNOW OF CASES OF CIVIC ACTION CAMPAIGNS/MOVEMENTS AND CITIZEN PARTICIPATION TO FIGHT CORRUPTION?

Please contact Shaazka Beyerle directly at: sbeyerle(at)nonviolent-conflict.org. This announcement is NOT a call for proposals, papers or researchers. Click Beyerle_Call-for-cases2010 for additional information, including research definitions and examples of civic action to fight corruption from around the world.”

Here is some work Shaazka did on related issues that you may find useful:
