Overview

Accountability in the European Union (The Collected Courses of the Academy of European Law Series)

This important new book approaches the issue of democratic deficit from the angle of accountability, today seen as an essential element of democratic government. It looks at differing understandings of the concept in the EU Member States and at various techniques - political, legal, and managerial - by which accountability can be assured. These include the EU Parliament as well as national parliaments but extend to less familiar institutions, such as the European Court of Auditors.
