Citizens and Governance Toolkit: Creating Change by Making People's Voices Heard
Commonwealth Secretariat, 2004 - Social Science - 129 pages
The Citizenship and Governance Toolkit draws on the lessons generated from learning projects and case studies supported under the Citizens and Governance Program of the Commonwealth Foundation. It offers practical guidance on how to promote the participation of citizens in governance.
The contents of this Toolkit (print and CD-ROM media) include:
_ the meaning of inclusive governance
_ ways for citizens to organize and engage in governance
_ strategies for multi-sectoral partnerships
_ key themes that emerge in governance, such as conflict, gender, and power
_ suggestions for participatory methods in governance, including learning circles, popular theatre, and role play
_ methods of building capacities--of citizens, intermediaries and government officials--for inclusive governance.
A training manual is also in preparation, which will include role plays, exercises and other training materials. The Toolkit is a fantastic resource bank for policymakers, practitioners, facilitators in government departments and agencies, and other change agents working in local communities.
