Citizenship DRC was an experiment in global research. In 2001, the UK Department for International Development (DFID) funded a coordinating team, based at the Institute of Development Studies, to assemble a research consortium to investigate how citizens hold institutions to account and claim their rights. By giving researchers from both the north and south greater independence, this approach was intended to support long-term research with the objectives of generating new knowledge, disseminating this widely to decision-makers and practitioners, and building the capacity of partner institutions to carry out high-quality research, communication and policy engagement. Over a decade, the Citizenship DRC built a network of researchers, policy-makers, practitioners and activists and collected more than 150 empirically grounded case studies that examine how citizen action and participation shape states and societies. A new summary report outlines the findings of the Centre's ten years of collaborative research.
