SCHAPIRO, Mario G.. Developmental Discretion and Democratic Accountability: a typology of mismatches. Rev. direito GV [online]. 2016, vol.12, n.2, pp.311-344. ISSN 2317-6172.

This paper aims at presenting a “law in context” type of analysis, informed by the tensions established between development and democracy. Bearing in mind this institutional context, this article tackles typical problems of public law, which are the power and its control. The objective of this research is conceiving an analytical framework of possible inadequacies presented by accountability tools. This typology focuses on two types of possible problems: quantitative and qualitative ones. The argument developed is not empirical, but a heuristic one. In other words, it is driven to construct ideal types of accountability mismatches that can affect the relationship between executive discretion and democratic controls.

Palavras-chave : Discretion; accountability; law; development; democracy.
