Edited by Danwood M. Chirwa and Lia Nijzink

The book brings together a number of leading experts in the fields of public law, political science, and democratization studies to discuss problems of accountability, identify ways of making African governments accountable, and describe the extent to which these mechanisms work in practice. It presents new knowledge about legal and political developments in a number of African countries that is relevant to the policy goal of developing and deepening democratic governance and accountable government on the continent.

Accountable Government in Africa will be of interest to anyone with an interest in democracy and governance on the African continent, including students and practitioners in the fields of public law, public administration, political studies, and African studies.
