SAVI think piece: Thinking and acting politically – Supporting citizen engagement in governance

Download document

This think piece demonstrates that by supporting¬†partners to ‘think and act politically’, a¬†more responsive state governance, and a sustained pattern of constructive engagement between citizens and state governments is beginning to emerge.

The SAVI programme came to an end in April 2016. The same management team are now implementing the follow-up programme, the Engaged Citizens Pillar of the new DFID-funded Partnership to Engage, Reform and Learn (PERL) programme in Nigeria, which started in May 2016. This programme will take a similar approach to SAVI, and this SAVI website will link to the PERL website as soon as it is established.
