The Accountability Lab is an incubator for the world’s most creative accountability ideas. In Liberia, the team works with innovative people and organizations to develop tools- and the communities around them- that can make power-holders more responsible.
Justice is a block for building democracy. It’s also a crucial element for sustainable peace and development. In an effort to support peace and foster development in Liberia, the Accountability Lab is promoting the use of mediation among dwellers of low-income communities in Monrovia.
The project was first initiated in West Point and implemented by West Point Health & Sanitation Organization (WPHSO) has now been scaled-up to Logan Town on Monrovia’s Bushrod Island.
Logan Town is a community that has a population of over 30,000 inhabitants with only one police depot that doesn’t have the capacity to responding to the legal and security needs of the people. In an effort to support the government of Liberia in building peace and bringing justice to the doorstep of every inhabitant of Liberia, the Accountability lab has trained eight (8) mediators in Logan Town.
