Bridging The Context Gap Through Comparative Research


Authors: Florencia Guerzovich and Steven Rosenzweig
Published by: Transparency and Accountability Initiative
Date: August 2014

This Think Piece incorporates insights from the TALEARN community of practice involving donors, practitioners and researchers in the T/A sector and reflects on the importance of context for Transparency and Accountability (T/A) interventions. It argues that while we know that context does matter, there is a need for comparative research about how and why T/A approaches were successful or not under different conditions, looking at the interaction of contextual factors and features of the intervention or approach. Such comparative approaches help understand how and why certain approaches worked (or did not) in a given context.
