The Collaborative has three overarching outcomes: i) to clarify how attention to organizational learning practices can improve transparency, accountability, and participation (TAP) practice, building particularly on the expertise of CSOs working in the global South; ii) to deliver productive learning exchanges targeted to practitioner needs and test the hypothesis that a peer-based, collaborative model enhances learning; iii) to inform and influence the broader TAP field and philanthropic actors on effective learning approaches.

The Collaborative is implemented by four “learning Hubs”—Centro de Estudios para la Equidad y Gobernanza en los Sistemas de Salud (CEGSS), Center for Law, Justice and Society (Dejusticia), Twaweza East Africa, and Global Integrity. They are supported by three resource organizations that promote practitioner-based evidence and learning in the TAP field broadly: the Accountability Research Center at American University (ARC), MIT Governance Lab (MIT GOV/LAB), and the Transparency and Accountability Initiative (TAI).

Learning and Reflections

Lessons for civil society organizations on reforming international Human Rights Systems

Challenges to counter initiatives that aim at weakening human rights systems

Learning how to reinvent a partnership

It took more than six years of advocacy and legislative effort, and in 2014 the president of Colombia finally signed the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) into law.

Learning how to learn more effectively

One of the Collaborative’s primary aims was for each Hub to strengthen its organizational capacity for monitoring, evaluation, and learning (MEL), which was a key point of emphasis for Global Integrity.

Learning into the future: our experience with partners

Work with the learning hubs’ partner organizations and networks (called “clusters” in the Collaborative’s lingo) was a key component of the Collaborative’s theory of change.
