    Hello to everyone here on GPSA Knowledge Platform! Been awhile. I am excited to be back and share with you a big milestone.

    My organizations, Government Watch (G-Watch) and Accountability Research Center (ARC), have just published a book on vertically-integrated civil society monitoring and advocacy. Entitled “Going Vertical: Citizen-Led Reform Campaigns in the Philippines,” this book is a result of action-research collaboration between G-Watch and ARC on multi-level citizen action for accountability. This book investigates how one strategic approach to citizen accountability – vertical integration – enabled seven reform initiatives in the Philippines to gain meaningful results. My co-authors include ARC Director, Prof. Jonathan Fox and campaigners and researchers in the Philippines, namely: Francis Isaac, Danny Carranza, Benedict Nisperos, Marlon Cornelio, Fed Marcelo, Rhia Muhi and Romeo Saliga.
