Beyond accountability: feedback as transformation
Feedback is one step towards accountability but it is much more than that. Effective feedback systems are disruptive in the best sense: they shift power in development from top-down to bottom-up. Regrettably, most current feedback practices reinforce rather than transform power relationships. Almost all foundations and non-profits agree that getting beneficiary feedback is a good idea, so why don’t they do it, or do it well? Is it because they don’t know how? Is it too uncomfortable to do? For the pioneers, what are the benefits? How can foundations be accountable? These are some of the questions this special feature will try to answer.
Guest editors are David Bonbright of Keystone Accountability, Elizabeth Christopherson of the Rita Allen Foundation, and Fadel Ndiame of AGRA
