Abstract
When it comes to a non-governmental organisation’s trustworthiness, there is an unexplored assumption in the literature that the implementation of accountability measures will increase trust. Vincent Charles Keating and Erla Thrandardottir explain why this ‘accountability solution’ may not in itself increase trust, and that it could actually harm it.
