2022 Round Up
Happy New Year! This year we want to thank our subscribers and readers for supporting our collective efforts toward greater accountability and community centered development. We launched the Accountability Console years ago as a database of complaints filed to independent accountability mechanisms. In 2021, we launched our Console Newsletter to feature research, accountability spotlights, and the Console features. In 2022, we launched a new microsite and report: Our Last and Only Report: What happens when development goes wrong in the Middle East and North Africa.
With the advent of 2023, we will continue our research advocacy work through research projects on community perspectives of complaint outcomes, the impact of civil society organizations on complaint outcomes, and the publication of our Console Newsletter. In the meantime, we're showcasing the five most popular Newsletter articles of 2022. If you have an idea for an article on a topic we have not explored, email us at email@example.com. We'd love to hear from you!
