Abstract

Global Governance 23 (2017), 183–203 Forging Soft Accountability in Unlikely Settings: A Conceptual Analysis of Mutual Accountability in the Context of South-South Cooperation Taekyoon Kim and Sojin Lim This study sets out to introduce the concept of soft accountability as a new approach to understanding mutual accountability in unlikely settings of development cooperation through South-South cooperation. In doing so, this study analyzes three defining components of accountability (responsi- bility, answerability, and enforceability) and identifies the actors and modalities of mutual accountability in four different situations of South- South cooperation mechanisms. The main finding in this conceptual analy- sis contains establishing an institutional and sustainable development platform for the mutual accountability of South-South cooperation by not only reflecting the distinctive nature of South-South cooperation, but also focusing on responsibility first to reduce buck-passing among actors and to sustain its continuous management.
