Analysing public accountability procedures in contemporary european contexts

Objective

The aim of this proposal is to analyse the relevance of public accountability procedures as tools for achieving publicly legitimate and socially sustainable policies and decisions. This will be done through empirical research and comparative analysis, in relation to seven national, and three socio-technological contexts. The background of this project is the lack of existing in-depth knowledge of the role of public accountability in contemporary, socially complex European policy- and decision-making and public debates. The project will thus specially contribute to the discussion of the structural changes arising from the ongoing European integration and enlargement process.
The project will result in:
country-related profiles;
issue-specific case studies ;
and an integrating comparative view of public accountability procedures in a European context.
The results will be disseminated through national and trans-national seminars.
