The Tilitonse Programme approach is informed by Political Economy Analysis (PEA) and Theory of Change.
Theory of Change
Tilitonse believes that increased levels of citizen voice, action, and interaction with government, private sector and like-minded interest groups, can create increased responsiveness in duty bearers and power holders leading to greater social inclusion, increased accountability and improved delivery of basic services. Tilitonse seeks to provide a platform for improving inclusivity, accountability and responsiveness in governance in Malawi through strengthened citizen voice. The approach that Tilitonse is advocating is one of collaboration not confrontation. Tilitonse believes that Civil Society Organizations in the country can play a major role in supporting this approach.

Political Economy Analysis
Tilitonse encourages projects that are informed by Political Economy Analysis (PEA) to clearly identify the root cause of the problems identified. Tilitonse uses PEA to understand what drives the political behavior of various actors hence this shapes how the Programme works with various actors and processes involved in the Programme. PEA helps Tilitonse unearth interests and incentives facing different groups in society in general and then around projects that are being implemented as well as the role of the formal and informal institutions in shaping the outcomes of the Programme. This practically means that PEA informs the selection of issues, actors and projects as well as the associated project monitoring and evaluation methods.
