Galvanising, Mobilising and Unleashing People Power for Good Governance and Fighting Corruption
At Water’s Edge, Battaramulla, on 8 – 10 Nov 2016
This is a new and innovative training developed by FORUT (Norway) and ICNC (International Center on Nonviolent Conflict, USA) and is hosted by Sri Lankan partners of FORUT (Norway). It is based on the new ground breaking book by Shaazka Beyerle, Curtailing Corruption, and research and practice with people at the grassroots who are developing strategies, tactics, and campaigns to fight corruption and promote good governance.
Traditionally, much of the attention has been on top-down initiatives to achieve good governance and fight corruption, with a focus on legislation and institutional mechanisms at the international, regional and national levels. Grassroots approaches have been seriously overlooked and under-valued. This is changing, as grassroots movements and people power are proving to be an effective alternative as well as complementary approach, to such top-down strategies.
