Global Governance and Accountability

The Miliband Lectures on Global Economic Governance

Date: Friday 17 May 2002
Time: 12.30pm
Venue: Old Theatre, Old Building
Speaker: Professor Robert O Keohane
Chair: Professor David Held

Robert O Keohane is James B Duke Professor of Political Science at Duke University. He has made fundamental contributions to international relations theory, and received the 1989 Grawemeyer Award for Ideas Improving World Order for his book After Hegemony: cooperation and discord in the world political economy. He was president of the American Political Science Association in 1999-2000.

Accountability is often invoked as a value in discussions of global governance, but it is rarely analysed as a concept. Robert Keohane will examine the concept of accountability and global governance, arguing that accountability is multifaceted and that a number of distinct types of accountability can be identified. He will focus on several types of accountability and seek to indicate the relevance of distinctions among them to issues of governance in world politics.

This event is free and open to all. No ticket required.
