Government Responsiveness: a think-piece for the Making All Voices Count programme

When citizens exercise voice, what is it that makes their voices count, or not count? If citizens’ voices count, governments are being responsive. In the past fifteen years many development and social change programmes have sought to make or strengthen the connections between citizens exerting voice and governments responding to their voices.

On speaking, mediation, representation and listening

Making All Voices Count is a global initiative that supports innovation, scaling, and research to deepen existing innovations and help harness new technologies to enable citizen engagement and government responsiveness.

The question of inclusiveness

Inclusiveness is a persistent theme in development thinking and practice. Concerns about who to include, and therefore who to exclude, how and at what level, lie at the heart of initiatives aimed at supporting expression, representation and influence.

Fostering new ideas for social inclusion and accountable responsive governance

The Making All Voices Count programme aims to foster and support new ideas to improve governance and achieve greater social justice. Key to Making All Voices Count’s approach to this challenge is to support innovation through a focus on brokering knowledge and new relationships, building evidence for practice, and learning.
