Gagnon, Jean-Paul (2007) Accountability, transparency, impartiality, and other ethical issues : improving democracy reduces violence. In Proceedings of Peace and Conflict Resolution Conference 2007, Tomorrow People Organization, Sarajevo, Bosnia-Herzegovina.
Violence is detrimental to the stability of any democracy. If people are too scared to vote, or if they lack confidence in their government to bring peace, how will their voices be heard? By discussing how accountability, transparency, and ethics dissuade social confusion, improve democracy, and lessen occurrences of violence, perhaps one can increase the success in the instance of stabilizing a new democracy or reinvigorating an old one. Theoretically resulting in more peaceful governmental transitions; accountability, transparency, and ethics in democracy are a must to build social trust, improve democracy, and reduce violence.
