Events: Event series
ODI regularly hosts events series, which take an in-depth look at key development and humanitarian issues.
This event series delivered by the Centre for Aid and Public Expenditure (CAPE) explored pertinent issues in public finance in developing countries and fragile states. By convening a range of specialists – including researchers, policy-makers and practitioners – the series aimed to share evidence, ideas and innovations to spur improvements in practice and to drive forward the research agenda.
For more information about the series and to register interest in future seminars, please contact Rebecca Simson (firstname.lastname@example.org).
This series comprises six discussions around the theme of ‘Demanding accountability from the bottom-up: examining what works, what does not work, and why'. The series reflects on the four years of implementing Governance and Transparency Fund (GTF) programmes such as Mwananchi in various parts of the world.
