The Ateneo Community is invited to the
The Ceremonial Launch of The Affiliated Network on Social Accountability -
East Asia and the Pacific (ANSA-EAP)

Veritas Hall 4/f Ateneo Professional Schools
Rockwell Center, Makati City
15 February 2008 â--ª 10 a.m. to 12 noon

Theme: Promoting Social Accountability, the Asian Way

Citizens around the world are discovering the power of social  
accountability to
influence and shape governance. Many countries in our region have already used
and benefited from it through initiatives, such as budget monitoring,
expenditure tracking and citizen report card on service delivery. It is high
time that we consolidate these efforts, facilitate cross-country sharing and
exchange, and realize the greater power of regional collective work.

The Ateneo School of Government (ASoG) takes the lead in organizing the
Affiliated Network for Social Accountability in East Asia and the Pacific
(ANSA-EAP). Entitled Promoting Social Accountability the Asian Way, we are
launching the ANSA-EAP on 15 February 2008, 10 a.m. to 12 noon, at the Veritas
Hall, 4/F of the Ateneo Professional Schools, Rockwell Center, Makati City.

In launching the ANSA-EAP, the main goal is to start a practical  
conversation on
cultivating the Asian perspective and way of doing social accountability.
Through this, home-grown efforts can make people to realize the direction and
value of their participation in governance, which further enrich the existing
community of learning and practice.

We hope that you can join us and share with us the vision of  
cooperation among the citizens of the East Asia and Pacific region.

Please confirm your attendance through Ms. Gladys Selosa  
(dysney_77 at yahoo.com) or Ms. Amihan Perez (arperez at ateneo.edu).
