This special issue of the FACTS Report, in partnership with CIVICUS, is to promote, publish and
publicize new projects and ideas on participatory and accountable governance of public institutions at
local and national levels. This call for proposals is not limited to field actors working on governance, but
also includes observers – individuals or institutions, public or private – who wish to make contributions
in the form of publications on democratisation processes. In addition, it also aims to promote innovative
actions conducted by civil society actors.
The proposals should focus on presenting, reflecting and/or doing a monograph of key projects or
initiatives on local democratic innovations, participatory and accountable governance, and experiments
in participatory and/or direct democracy. Local democratic innovations refer to any new, creative and
inspiring projects, perspectives, partnerships or initiatives which aim at improving democracy,
governance, citizen participation and actions, and any related processes at the local level.
CIVICUS: World Alliance for Citizen Participation and FACTS Initiative are pleased to announce a call for proposals on local democratic innovations. Contribute and send an abstract on any innovative project or initiative on governance, participation and accountability at the local and national levels. It can be selected to be published in a special issue of the FACTS Reports to be released in the summer 2013.
