Accountability and Ethics

Accountability and Ethics

(p.416) 7 Accountability and Ethics
International Prosecutors

Frédéric Mégret

Oxford University Press

This chapter conceptualizes and analyses the understudied question of accountability and ethics of international prosecutors. Ethics refer to the set of standards and principles that characterize ‘right conduct’ in the exercise of a profession. Accountability can be seen as both a process (and the procedures that go with it), or an end-state, a quality (that of being accountable). The core of accountability is that one can be called upon to answer for one's behaviour and decisions. How one is made to answer in the context of international prosecutions is the object of the chapter.
