Publications

The previous five years for T/AI has been a period of learning and evolution. Our group is in the process of folding in the insights we have gained into a new strategy that realigns our team’s mission with the ever-changing transparency, accountability and participation field. To understand more about the future of the transparency and accountability movement, and the new direction of our group, please see this collection of think pieces, commissioned by our Steering Committee.

The new T/AI strategy will be launched in the fall of 2016.

This page features the reports, policy briefs and think pieces produced and published in the last three years, under T/AI’s previous focus areas: Impact and Learning, New Technologies, and Policy Innovations. We continue to make these pieces available for your reference.

All our reports and policy briefs from our Impact and learning; New technologies and Policy Innovations working groups can be found here.
