The state of accountability in 2013
A book of essays from a range of national figures with an interest in scrutiny and accountability, reviewing the state of accountability and good governance across the UK in 2013, our tenth anniversary year.
The essays are grouped into three sections, covering themes which together sum up the challenges and opportunities facing those of us interested in accountability and good governance – specifically in England although with relevance for other jurisdictions too – today:
• Clarity – defining and translating concepts into practice
• Communication – building dialogue between the public and public services
• Complexity – accountability across the public, private and voluntary sectors
