Dear Colleague,

Following on from the December issue of Alliance which focused on governance and accountability, we are now writing to invite you to take part in an online discussion forum entitled ‘Rethinking Accountability’, co-hosted by Alliance and Social Edge.

We will be discussing the following questions:
Are we in a new era of scrutiny in the social sector, and if so, what does it mean for us?
What can the corporate and NGO sectors learn from each other?
How do we construct the link between performance, resourcing and accountability in the social sector?
Contributors to the debate will include:

* David Bonbright, Director, Civil Society Programmes with the Aga Khan Foundation (Switzerland)
* Barbara Kibbe, Vice President, Skoll Foundation
* Kumi Naidoo, Secretary General, CIVICUS
* Peter Reynard, Editor, Accountability Forum
