A 102 page report titled, Debating NGO Accountability, by Dr. Jem Bendell, puts democracy and human rights firmly at the centre of the debate about NGO accountability.

The report sheds light on and adds value to today's important discussion of NGO accountability and contributes towards a better understanding of the issues at stake for democratic societies and democratic governance. It is the concept of "democratic accountability" that lies at the heart of the study, and will allow NGOs to continue to develop as effective and important actors in the international arena.

The report is available for free download on the UN-NGLS website.
