Expert Group Meeting on ┐Engaging Citizens to Enhance Public Sector Accountability and Prevent Corruption in the Delivery of Public Services┐
07 - 08 July, 2011
The goal of this meeting is to update global knowledge in the field of citizen engagement to enhance public service delivery, with particular attention to ways in which participatory approaches are being used in countries around the world to strengthen public sector accountability and prevent corruption. This objective is of particular importance at this time, as the UN Member States have identified participatory approaches to the provision of public services as a useful course of action for countries in achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
