And yet they thrive!—Regaining the relevance of a transparency system
Stockholm University, Faculty of Social Sciences, Stockholm Business School, Accounting.
2018 (English)In: Development Policy Review, ISSN 0950-6764, E-ISSN 1467-7679, Vol. 36, no SI, p. O495-O513Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

Over the past decade, a host of donor organizations implemented transparency systems to make international development aid more transparent to the public. These initiatives have met with little public interest, but their proliferation and development show no sign of diminishing. This article shows how internal importance to the political system, fueled by formal rankings and the exhibition of transparency systems as a flagship initiative, can replace relevance to the public as a driving force for sustainable development. The article concludes by discussing the possibility of a future development where transparency systems finally do connect with user groups, such as citizens of both donor and recipient countries, and gain a relevance even beyond original intentions.
