Is accountability possible in global environmental governance? The purpose of

this thesis is to examine if accountability is possible in global environmental governance. From an accountability perspective the thesis tries to illuminate global environmental governance. An investigation about the concept

accountability is made and the thesis also illuminates the possible problems that exist in global environmental governance which exist of such a large amounts of different and often private actors. By investigating and examine the concept of accountability from different aspects and by using Global Compact as a example of global environmental governance the thesis try to answer if accountability actually exist in global environmental governance and in what way it is possible to demand accountability. The thesis concludes that democratic accountability isn´t possible in the global sphere. However there do exist other potential mechanisms to demand accountability in global environmental governance but these mechanisms appear to be dependent of other factors and actors to work in an efficient way. The thesis also concludes that as long as there is no global common frame of reference it will be hard to expect accountability in the global sphere and in global environmental governance. (Less)
