Our Research Associates
Accountability International (AI) has always been involved in some strategic advisory and consulting work with partner movements, sharing our knowledge and expertise in partnerships that have contributed to AI’s overall budget. We have also always used those funds to co-sponsor our emerging start-ups until funders could step in or to implement projects that we deemed worthy.
Now we will be amplifying that aspect of our work going forward. AI (partly through the new consulting arm Accountability for Change) will very actively be seeking consulting work, piece contracts and other development work as a means to become a fully-fledged hybrid NGO. Hybrid NGOs are becoming the norm as activists struggle to access funds for niche work that is not covered by the general funding landscape.
The Research Associates will also be there as a resource for the traditional projects AI is running with a variety of financial partners.
