Amid economic globalization, the issues of trust and efficiency have become increasingly pressing, as transparency has more and more become a goal of responsible government. There are new calls for transparency and openness in trust-based forms of participatory governance. This book argues that the transnational discourse of transparency promotes potentially contradictory policy ideas that can lead to unintended consequences and paradoxes in governance and accountability. In analyzing the institutional developments in the Nordic context, the study claims that there is a new economic understanding of access to government information as a result of the policies related to transparency. Government Transparency critically examines whether or not increased transparency really leads to increased democratic accountability.
