Abstract: NPM- flavoured accountability regimes in many instances stifle innovation rather than foster it. Today, New Public Governance (NPG) creates new challenges for indicator-based accountability systems. NPG raises questions on how to reform indicator-based accountability to make it work in complex multi- actor settings. What is the use of performance indicators when dealing with unruly problems? How to stimulate innovation without calling accountabil- ity in itself into question? This chapter proposes some prospective directions based on a critical analysis of indicator-based accountability.
