(p.234) 7 Questions of Accountability
The Local Governance of Crime: Appeals to Community and Partnerships

Adam Crawford

Oxford University Press

This chapter addresses the implications of the developments and trends in the local governance of crime for forms of accountability and notions of democracy. It also critically examines the implications of neo-corporatist trends in order to expose a number of problematic issues surrounding accountability and democracy. Then, it considers how partnerships might be rendered more accountable. Consequently, it explores the need for positive political thinking about the democratic principles that ought to underpin ‘partnerships’, before outlining some of the recent contributions to how one might begin to build such institutions, their limitations, and possibilities.

Keywords:   crime, accountability, democracy, partnerships
