*Abstract:* In this talk, I will discuss some design principles for
building civic technologies to combat corruption and to improve democratic

Combating Corruption with Mobile Phones project that I initiated at
Stanford University in 2011.

*Bio:* I am a Research Scientist at the Tech Policy Lab (UW) and a faculty
affiliate at the Georgetown University's School of Foreign Studies. I
started my work life in 2000 where I had the privilege of working with some
of India's leading activists and who used their political imagination to
mobilize people, fight corruption and make governments more accountable. At
that time, I realized that technology, if used with the right kind of
political imagination, could help in improving democracy and
accountability. That interest took me to Stanford, where I worked with the
Program on Liberation Technology for six years. At UW, I am learning Value
Sensitive Design and applying them current tech policy issues. You can find
