About "Ask The Locals!" Project

Basic Description
"30 years of EU evaluations have not managed to uncover what any Sicilian villager could have told them from the onset: what is the money really for and how it is spent”. This idea of leading social scientist Alina Mungiu-Pippidi lies behind “Ask the Locals!” project. Inter Alia and its partners aim to use the power of informal social networks of small communities in order to explore and enhance local agency against fund mismanagement and corruption. The information will be derived from the citizens in order to be utilized by the citizens with the underlying aim to deconstruct negative self-images that perpetuate inequality and injustice and lead to victimization and defeatism both inside partner countries and externally in their relation to other European people and states.
