Blair Glencorse runs the Accountability Lab. The Lab works in communities to make governments more accountable and to open-up civic space- using the arts, media, culture and technology. Blair and his team have done everything from helping to found the first film school in Liberia to monitoring and improving public services in Pakistan to running a global TV show called Integrity Idol to “name and fame” honest government officials. The Accountability Lab recently won the International Anti-Corruption Excellence Award. Blair is also the co-founder of the first co-working and innovation space in Liberia and both TEDxMonroviaand TEDxBamako; and an expert on anti-corruption with the World Economic Forum. Blair speaks regularly on issues of community engagement, leadership, citizen participation and governance; and his work has been published in the New York Times, Washington Post, Foreign Policy and the Guardian among other outlets.
