Centre for Internet & Society

The National Campaign for Peoples' Right to Information (NCPRI) and the Centre for Internet and Society (CIS) are organizing a public talk on "Framing an Alternative Approach to the Jan Lokpal" on Friday, August 5, 2011 at CIS, Bangalore. Shankar Singh, Nikhil Dey and Aruna Roy of MKSS and NCPRI will be speaking.

The drafts of both the Lokpal as well as the Jan Lokpal bill have been criticised extensively on multiple grounds, including that of lack of accountability and concentration of power in a singular body.  This public talk seeks to provide a framework for an alternative conception of the Jan Lokpal that takes a multi-pronged approach to tackling corruption by moving towards concurrent anti-corruption and grievance redress measures.
