Accountability Matters in the Fight Against Corruption
In the fight against corruption, the questions remain the same. Are the efforts against corruption enough? What is needed in this fight? What new techniques and tools should be used to make people more accountable?
Blair Glencorse, founder and executive director of Accountability Lab, an independent, non-profit organization that works to make power-holders responsible in the developing world, said in an video interview with ThinkBrigade that different approaches are necessary in developing nations to make people more accountable.
“I don’t think the fight against corruption is going particularly well because it is not the right fight- we need to look further at how to generate the accountability that will in turn reduce corrupt behaviors,” said Glencorse, who was named as a Transparency International “Game Changer” for his work on accountability in 2012.
