Testing the Resilient Roots project central hypothesis

By September 22, 2020 NMedia

Resilient Roots in partnership with Triskuel Consulting designed and roll out a methodology for testing the central Resilient Roots hypothesis – that civil society organisations which are more accountable to their primary constituents are more resilient to civic space-related threats.

One of the main findings was  that while it cannot confidently says that more primary constituent accountability always leads to more resilience, it can be said that these two are connected.

A summary of the methodology that was used, the main findings, and recommendations is available here.

Also, we are sharing the two following cases studies that illustrates how the relationship between accountability and resilience plays out in the real world for two of the Resilient Roots national partners:
