Method: Jan Sunwai

Originally designed to fight corruption in rural India, a jan sunwai is a type of public hearing, part community meeting, part court hearing that brings together administrators and beneficiaries of a public scheme.

The dialogue is organized by facilitators from civil society organizations. It is moderated by a small group of experts sympathetic to the cause. The public session marks the culmination of a long preparatory process whereby facilitators collect and document cases of violation of people’s rights, identify emblematic cases and train families to speak in public.
