November 19 to 21, 2019
World Bank Headquarters, Washington, DC
The 6th Global Partners Forum will be held at the World Bank headquarters in Washington, DC, from November 19 to 21. It is organized in partnership with the World Bank’s Human Rights and Development Trust Fund, Open Society Foundations and the Public Service Accountability Monitor at Rhodes University and will focus on the role of social accountability in meeting the challenge of inclusion in public governance. The aim of the 2019 GPSA Global Partners Forum is to equip GPSA stakeholders to promote, design and implement better social accountability mechanisms that can help to solve the challenge of asymmetries of power through more inclusive policy-making and implementation, building on social accountability’s foundations but with an eye toward its frontiers.
As a field-shaping initiative, the Forum will assess what opportunities social accountability processes have created thus far, where the challenges towards using social accountability for more inclusive and effective development lie, and thus aim to inform the actions of governments, donors, civil society groups, and development partners. The Forum will prominently showcase experiences led by GPSA Global Partners and the GPSA’s own initiatives.
