The road to good governance : via the path less accountable The effectiveness of fiscal accountability in Liberia (Inglês)

Accountability mechanisms are touted as a path to 'good governance.' But are accountability mechanisms a sure route to achieving the objectives of 'good governance'? Limited case studies have offered inconsistent evidence (Devas & Grant 2003; Charlick 2001; Blair 2000). But empirical evidence of the relationships between principles of good governance, high citizen participation, low levels of corruption, high-quality service delivery, and accountability mechanisms is lacking. The author examine the effectiveness of accountability mechanisms in Liberia and find relationships between measures of county-level fiscal accountability and measures of good governance do not always produce expected results, making fiscal accountability mechanisms no guarantee for achieving goals of good governance.
