Your findings support an insight that was also shared at a recent InterMedia seminar at the Bank, where they highlighted the role of information intermediaries or "info-mediaries". These can be anything from NGOs, village politicians, teachers, or your parent - but they are the key actors that translate available information into civic action and demands for better government accountability. What would be interesting to study as a follow-up to your findings, therefore, would be whether or not such info-mediaries exist in the Benin context and what kind of role they played. It is often these actors that convert passive information into "actionable" awareness.
