  • Accountability for amnesty 

    O'Connor, Simon (University of St Andrews, 2010-06-22) - Thesis
    Amnesties are evidently contentious issues. The issue of immunity and impunity is significant in the peace versus justice debate. What this thesis attempts is to explain the grant of amnesty as a legally permissible exception ...
  • Accountability for quality of care : monitoring all aspects of quality across a framework adapted for action 

    Hulton, Louise; Matthews, Zoe; Bandali, Sarah; Izge, Abubakar; Daroda, Ramatu; Stones, William (2016-01) - Journal article
    Quality of care is essential to maternal and newborn survival. The multidimensional nature of quality of care means that frameworks are useful for capturing it. The present paper proposes an adaptation to a widely used ...
