Watch Accountability Lab’s Executive Director, Blair Glencorse, speak at TEDx MidAtlantic:

Blair Glencorse argues that the best way to stop corruption is not by shaming, but rather by supporting and rewarding those doing the right thing. He helped create Integrity Idol, which aims to generate debate around the idea of integrity and demonstrate the importance of honesty, personal responsibility and accountability as well as inspire a new generation to be more effective public servants. Integrity Idol is currently taking place in Liberia, Nepal and Pakistan.

Blair Glencorse founded and runs the Accountability Lab, an organization that is redefining how we ensure the accountability of decision-makers around the world. After spending years working with international organizations and civil society groups- and talking to everyone from Pakistani tribal elders to Zimbabwean students- Blair founded the Lab to catalyze a new generation of change-makers that can push for integrity.
