Parliamentary Accountability in Uganda

We are working with the African Leadership Initiative to support the production of annual scorecards for all of Uganda’s members of parliament, recording their behavior in the parliament, in committee and in their constituencies (see the 2007 and 2008 scorecards and a motivating model). This information is then made available through workshops to about half of the constituencies in the country. The major questions are: does knowing more allow constituents to hold their representatives accountable? Does anticipation of this help improve elite behavior?
