Abstract

Over the past decade Latin American countries have implemented successful governance initiatives that had facilitated the various positive social and economic impacts for which the region is now recognised. These ignited the interest of countries like South Africa, hoping for similar results. Diana Sanchez Betancourt relates some of the experiences on strengthening citizen oversight to improve overall governance.
