This description of Almudena Ocejo's work was prepared when Almudena Ocejo was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2011.
Almudena Ocejo is cultivating a culture of public accountability at all levels of Mexican government through the creation of civic surveillance organizations. By incubating what she calls “citizen-sector comptrollers” as well as pursuing accompanying changes in public policy, Almudena is bolstering civic participation in the decision-making processes of public institutions in a country that has been governed by a single political party for seven of the last eight decades.
