Citizen audits and beyond: building local democracy
Fanny MalinenMeadows Warehouse
Research for Action has been working on a citizen debt audit in local authorities, and successfully contested expensive and risky bank loans to councils. In this session we will share experiences from our audit, especially how to use the rights residents have to inspect and object to their council's spending.
We will also facilitate sharing experiences of accountability and participation in local government, ideas for improving them and ask how we can work together towards better local democracy.
