Democratic Accountability in Latin America by Scott Mainwaring and Christopher Welna pdf free download. This volume on democratic accountability addresses one of the burning issues on the agenda of policy-makers and citizens in contemporary Latin America.

Accountability is a key concept in the social sciences, yet its meaning varies widely from one author to the next.

Finally, the volume also furthers understanding of the interaction between various mechanisms and institutions of accountability.
