„Accountability“ is one of the leading political demands of our time. But what does „accountability“ actually mean?
Aufzeichnung vom 02. März 2022
Whom exactly is being asked to be „accountable“ for what? Is the accountability demanded of political actors the same as the accountability that criminal courts or the International Court of Justice in The Hague strive to achieve? Can these two kinds of „accountability“ be separated, or do they merge with or bleed into one another? Are there yet other ways of construing this concept, from establishing historical accountability for past wrongs to establishing and correcting misbehavior in academic institutions? The panel discussion will address this issue, exploring the multiple, often vigorously debated, meanings of accountability in different legal, political or other circumstances.
