According to the values of democracy, the governors should be held accountable for their actions and omissions by the governed. However, on a global level there is a deep deficit of democratic accountability. The Inter-Parliamentary Union, (IPU) whose members consist of almost all of the national parliaments in the world, claims to increase accountability within the UN system. This thesis uses the work of the United Nations with the Sustainable Development Goals as a case to explore how the IPU can affect democratic accountability. By looking at how the IPU can affect the work of the UN with the Sustainable Development Goals with regards to transparency, consolation, evaluation and correction, all aspects of democratic accountability are taken into account. The method of the study is based on qualitative content analysis of mainly publications and reports by the IPU. The analysis reveals that there are some ways that the IPU affects the democratic accountability, although it is limited to the democratic development on a national level. (Less)
