Accountability is central to ideas and practices of effective governance but, in the face of at times quite fundamental challenges and changes, traditional modes of governance and accountability are being re-evaluated, and in important ways re-invented. This unit explores these developments in a critical and analytic manner. It locates management within its context of political, legal, fiscal and ethical accountability to diverse stakeholders. A key aim is for students to develop a critical understanding of the complex and at times competing array of accountabilities at play today, at the same time exploring ways of responding effectively, imaginatively and ethically to these demands.
