Description:

Vivek Srinivasan, Academic and Research Program Manager, Liberation Technology Program, Stanford University 

Combatting Corruption with Mobile Phones

India’s right to information movement demonstrated the potential to combat corruption through social audits – an exercise to share and verify public records with people.  But this process requires a lot of time, skill and organizational effort – thanks to which very few audits are organized in India despite its potential.  Srinivasan and his team hopes to change this by creating digital tools for activists, which they can use to organize social audits continuously at low cost, and thus challenge corruption in a sustained manner.  He will share the progress of the project so far in this talk.

Open to the Public

Sponsored by the South Asia Center at the Moynihan Institute of Global Affairs, Department of Public Administration and International Affairs
