Professor Fox examines the keywords we use when talking about the upwards accountability of governments, and downwards accountability as citizens attempt to hold the powerful to account.
He reflects on the political origins and implications of terms in the accountability field, addressing their invention, translation, appropriation and circulation in different contexts.
