Toolkits & Guides: Impact & Accountability

Resilient Roots Case Studies

From 2018 - 2020, the Resilient Roots (RR) initiative examined whether organisations who are accountable to their primary constituents, that is, the individuals and communities they support and serve, are better able to cope with threats related to closing civic space.

RR has produced six case studies that illustrate the importance of accountability mechanisms and how they work in practice, along with the connection between accountability and resilience. Each case study examines a different topic in relation to how an organisation’s relationship with its primary constituents can influence its relevance, legitimacy, and effectiveness.
