This panel aims to discuss bottom-up initiatives to counter corruption, opening room for assessing diagnostic and prognostic frames as well as exploring practices.
We encourage papers discussing the role of technology, particularly digital media, and how it has been used by these movements and assessing circumstances under which civil society gets together, and citizen’s voices are more likely to be heard and to make a difference.
