- BY David Mackenzie
Democracy Reporting International (DRI) is a non-partisan, independent, not-for-profit organisation registered in Berlin. Democracy Reporting International promotes political participation of citizens, accountability of state bodies and the development of democratic institutions world-wide. DRI works in Asia, Eastern Europe, the Middle East and North Africa assisting democratic reform actors with knowledge transfer, evidence-based policy advice and multi-stakeholder processes on key areas of democratic change.
In Lebanon, our current work focuses on the political aspects of the country’s decentralisation efforts. More specifically, our project “Setting an Agenda for Decentralisation in Lebanon – Phase II” aims to reinforce effective cooperation between national and local governments and create platforms for coordination and exchange between citizens and local and national authorities. DRI works closely with a consortium of Lebanese civil society organisations – Al-Idara bi-Mahalla – and cooperates with academics, think tanks and decentralisation practitioners. In 2018 and 2019, DRI will conduct a comprehensive assessment of governance effectiveness in three key public service delivery sectors and use the findings to engage national and local government representatives and work with civil society partners to advocate for reform.
