about

Transparency has become a global concept of responsible government. This book argues that the transnational discourse of transparency promotes potentially contradictory policy ideas that can lead to unintended consequences. It critically examines whether or not increased transparency really leads to increased democratic accountability.

TERO ERKKILÄ is Lecturer in Political Science at the Department of Political and Economic Studies, University of Helsinki, Finland.
