Being Accountable: Why, for what and to whom should the United Nations Security Council account for its decisions?
Facing a largely stalled drive to develop the United Nations into a legitimate global government, this research will contribute to bridging the substantial governance gap between accepted norms of legal responsibility on the one hand, and the practical reality of signal lapses in accountable decision making on the other.
Taking a reform-oriented research this research will analyse the decision making processes of the United Nations Security Council, in the operative context of the United Nations as an organisation governed by public international law.
