Join our Hybrid Seminar: Pathways for effective civic engagement? Findings on Social Accountability Initiatives in Morocco, Tunisia and Lebanon’

After more than a decade since the “Arab Spring”, it’s time to review efforts to strengthen relations between citizens and their (local) governments. This seminar will present and discuss research findings on social accountability initiatives in Morocco, Tunisia, and Lebanon. We aim to answer the research question: “What does accountability look like for the people on the ground?”.

The seminar will be moderated by Sylvia I. Bergh (Center of Expertise/THUAS and ISS/Erasmus University) and Ward Vloeberghs (Erasmus University College/EUC). Joining us as presenters are Hicham Jadaoun (Lebanon), Intissar Kherigi and Tasnim Chirchi (Tunisia) and Francesco Colin (Morocco, and PhD researcher at ISS).
This project was made possible thanks to a Research Innovation Facility grant from the ISS (International Institute of Social Studies, Erasmus University in Rotterdam) and support by the Centre of Expertise on Global Governance/THUAS as well as Erasmus University College/EUC.
We warmly invite all THUAS, ISS, and EUC students and colleagues, as well as any other interested students, researchers, and practitioners around the world to join us to critically reflect on the findings and what they mean for policymaking and development practice, as well as future research!
