To answer this question, I conducted an ethno-methodological study of the Salvation Army in France, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and Sweden, where White French, Haitians, Congolese (Brazzaville and Kinshasa), German-Swiss, WASPS, Zimbabweans and Vikings were observed. The thesis arrives at three styles of accountability revealing differentiated ethnic influences : full covenant, partial covenant and blank covenant. In the three styles, accountability appears As a system where byt the expectations of a Higher-Stakeholder are approximated by managers, Intermediary stakeholders and individuals through every day life practices
