Transparency and Government Accountability

Mission Statement

In recent years, more governments have taken an authoritarian turn; in regions like the Middle East, gerontocracies are increasingly unrepresentative of the populations they serve. In Silicon Valley and at Stanford, there are a profusion of big data analytics and transparency tools that are being developed that could aid activists seeking more representative, effective, and democratic governments.

The goal of this Giving Circle is to create more transparent and representative government by leveraging technology and empowering the work of activists around the world.
