Accountability Counsel’s Research program informs the movement for transparency and accountability in international finance. Our research exposes patterns that show advocates, policy-makers, and the institutions themselves best practice and where improvement is needed most. The Accountability Console, our interactive database of every community complaint ever filed to every accountability office, is a key tool in this work.

Our Research team:

  • conducts in-depth qualitative and quantitative research to support our case and policy work,
  • creates interactive tools to improve transparency and access to information, and
  • through the Console, collects, analyzes, and shares data related to accountability in international finance.

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