ABSTRACT

The purpose of this paper is to contribute to the evolving understanding of public expenditure management as a political, rather than a purely technical, process. The paper identifies issues, parnters, tools and methods that may help development actors to support citizen accountability and a pro-poor, gender-equitable, focus in public expenditure management. The paper aims to take this debate forward by looking at the ways in which a rights approach can contribute to strengthening pro-poor voice and outcomes in budget processes.
