The Accountability Lab was founded in early 2012 as an effort to work with young people to develop new ideas for accountability, transparency and open government. It has evolved into a global network of local Accountability Labs that are finding new ways to shift societal norms, solve intractable challenges and build “unlikely networks” for change.
The Lab has a three-pronged approach to building accountability:
1. Value-shifting campaigns
2. Training and collaborative spaces
3. Ecosystem building
