Title
Coming to terms with accountability : combining multiple forums and functions
Author
Abstract
In this article, we develop a theoretical argument that leads to a more optimistic outlook on the present state of accountability. By combining the different forums and functions of accountability in a multidimensional manner, the possibilities to hold power to account may be larger than often assumed. The main reason is that functions no longer depend on the well-functioning of a single forum and each forum serves multiple functions. In order to study accountability on a more systematic basis, we urgently need a solid conceptual framework. We aim to contribute to this much wanted coming to terms with accountability.
