Accountability Counsel’s Research program informs the movement for transparency and accountability in international finance. Our research is, for the first time, exposing patterns that show advocates, policy-makers, and the institutions themselves best practice and where improvement is needed most.

A key piece of our current work is launching the Accountability Console, an interactive database of every complaint ever filed to every accountability office.

This program includes:

  • in-depth research to support our case and policy work,
  • data and analytics exposing patterns in our field, and
  • interactive tools to improve transparency and access to information.

In addition, this program houses a set of internal tools to assist Accountability Counsel’s Communities and Policy teams to track the progress of their work, synchronize work between teams, and gauge effectiveness in relation to our broader theory of change.
