In 2006, Blair found himself on the hot, dusty plains of southern Nepal, talking to young Nepalis about their lives. They explained why a lack of integrity was at the heart of all of their daily challenges- from lack of education and jobs to corruption- and that they did not have the tools to fix these problems. As Blair spent time working with the World Bank and other civil society organizations listening to young people all around the world, the same themes emerged over and over again: young people collectively want to build accountability in their communities and change their societies- and have great ideas to do so. But they need long-term, creative and flexible support to do it. Blair set up the Accountability Lab to fill this gap. Blair leads the Lab’s strategy, outreach and development globally and spends as much time as he can in Liberia, Nepal and Pakistan. Blair is an Echoing Green Fellow and also a member of the World Economic Forum’s Global Agenda Council on Anti-Corruption.
