Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book's creative critical (re)constructions of global accountabilities are extremely welcome. 'Accountability' is so ascendant in contemporary global governance, perhaps even aspiring to the kind of pivotal position once held by 'sovereignty' in Westphalian world politics. These authors show us how the new discourse can enable rather than frustrate societal betterment."
Professor Jan Aart Scholte, Co-Director, Centre for the Study of Globalisation and Regionalisation, University of Warwick

'Global Accountabilities provides a treasure chest of analytic insights in this era where innovations are desperately needed to overcome fractured and ineffective accountabilities across the state, business and civil society.'
Simon Zadek, Chief Executive of AccountAbility, Senior Fellow at the John F. Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University, and author of the award winning book The Civil Corporation

Book Description

This volume examines debates on the nature and impacts of accountability in modern organizations. It studies public, private and nonprofit sectors of society and draws from cases across a range of comparative cultural, social, and political settings.
