Event Details

AidData and Feedback Labs invite you to a breakfast event: 


Citizen Feedback: Bolstering or Circumventing the Democratic Process?

Feedback initiatives leverage technology and open data to amplify citizen voices in shaping development priorities, monitoring progress, and evaluating results. But how does directly engaging citizens in dialogue about development investments and results intersect with other elements of representative democracy? Do feedback initiatives adequately take parliamentarians into account? Can parliamentarians help close the loop and incentivize the executive branch to not only solicit, but take action upon feedback from citizens?

Join us for an intimate breakfast event and discussion bringing together donor, civil society and government representatives to tackle these questions and more. This event is made possible with funding from USAID's Global Development Lab and the Higher Education Solutions Network.
