Holding power to account

This website offers a way of holding power to account by analysing how it is used.  Starting from the position that governance should be acceptable to those who are subject to it, the ways in which individuals, organisations and governments exert power over each other are classified, investigated, and assessed.  

The About button below describes the website’s aims, lists its contents, and suggests ways of using its material.

The Patterns button offers access to a hierarchically-arranged list of pattern descriptions.

The other two buttons give access to the Books and the alphabetical Index to topics.

The blog posts offer detailed and topical examples of holding power to account
