Abstract [en]

This chapter consists of two parts. First, two accountability dilemmas are identified, key concepts are defined, and a framework for exploring the interplay among democratic governance, audit systems, and accountability is presented. Second, two different but dominant audit systems used in Swedish eldercare are described and analysed in light of this framework, and consequences of auditing and accountability for key actors involved are discussed, as well as possible ways of resolving the two accountability dilemmas. In relation to the volume, this chapter explores conditions, trends, and challenges in today’s audit society and their implications for welfare professions and other key actors. Swedish eldercare is an illustrative case of a phenomenon occurring in most policy sectors.
