Abstract

Austerity strained the financial sustainability of governments and ability of policy makers to address policy challenges, and so having appropriate accountability and transparency arrangements to assure the public they were getting value for money took on renewed urgency. Comparing and contrasting findings from a critical review of policy developments in English Local Government during the Conservative led coalition central government 2010-2015 with those from related studies on accountability and transparency more generally, the paper offers key themes for practitioners and policy makers seeking to build stronger democratic systems of governance that go well beyond the UK jurisdiction.
