Local GovernanceFair Elections, Open Parliament and Good Governance
Local tier of government happens to be at the epicenter of political stakes. Thus, local governance monitoring helps a great deal in bridging the gap that exists between government and the governed. Keeping an eye on what the government does, especially at the local level, not only helps inform people about the performance of public institutions but also gives them a sense of participation in how they are being governed.
Objective information about governance processes is vital for encouraging informed engagement of the people with the elected and public institutions. The monitoring is aimed at enriching the public discourse and debate on governance and developing research-based recommendations for reforms.
