This working paper lays out the conceptual foundations for undertaking an action research based programme that seeks to strengthen citizen engagement with the state and improve governance. The Mwananchi programme, as it is called, works to enhance political leverage for citizens as they engage with their governments at different levels so that citizen voice becomes one of the agents that makes state institutions more accountable and responsive to citizens.
