Protecting Civil Society’s Role in Development Co-operation

In an article published by the CSO Partnership for Development Effectiveness in cooperation with the Global Partnership for Effective Development Co-operation, Virginie Coulloudon from Transparency International looks at the role of CSOs in Development Co-operation. She talks about the role of transparency and accountability in relation to development co-operation and she highlights the fact that “CSOs also help monitor the laws that they worked to have passed, with people coming together to make sure rights are not abused and laws are obeyed. Civil society plays a part in monitoring the activities of private sector entities, for example bringing up instances of illegal pollution and human rights abuses, creating accountability when needed.”
