Decentralised Governance, Transparency and Accountability: Empirical Evidence from West Bengal
Decentralised governance has been conceived as an instrument for promoting development. It is expected to facilitate effective people’s participation, enhance degree of transparency and ensure greater accountability. This paper examines the relationship between decentralised governance and transparency as well as accountability in the light of empirical evidence. The study reveals that transparency and accountability can be enhanced at the grass roots level by strengthening institutions of decentralised governance, ensuring people’s participation and accumulation of social capital.
