The Development Research Centre on Citizenship, Participation and Accountability (Citizenship DRC) has worked with universities, research institutes and nongovernmental organisations in more than 25 countries to explore the new ways that citizens are shaping our states and societies. The research, which was funded by the UK Department for International Development, offered a unique perspective on global challenges from the bottom up – a window to the world through the eyes of its citizens. Over 60 researchers were involved, and many more academics, activists and policy-makers collaborated. When the Citizenship DRC concluded its decade of work in 2010, it had largely fulfilled its objectives. In addition to being a source of evidence and innovative ideas about citizenship, the programme also leaves behind a number of lessons for researchers, professors, teachers and trainers - anyone concerned with how to work and learn together in a global network.
