Joseph Mansilla

From my time at university, I wrote for local NGOs and international organizations that implemented conflict resolution programs in my home region in Mindanao, an island in southern Philippines. I sought to understand the correlation between corruption and conflict, especially in fragile states.

As a young activist, I became one of the original members of the Global Youth Anti-Corruption Network. Through Fair Play, we reap the power of music and "artivists" to inform and engage citizens on the cost of corruption. I am passionate about these creative non-formal learning strategies, and have written on the topic for Transparency International's Global Corruption Report on Education.

I joined the World Bank in 2012 as part of its Open Government practice. I specialize on citizen engagement, exploring the ways that ICT and youth participation can be leveraged to improve governance.

In my free time, I like to cook, read novels, watch action movies, and dance.
