Literature Review Background

The literature review explores what is already known about accountability overall, in the public sector, and in adult literacy in Canada and abroad, examining literature published since 1990.

We recognize that literature reviews may not be the most compelling reading for many people; so we have challenged our literature reviewer to create documents that will inform, educate, and improve the quality of dialogue about accountability among Project stakeholders.

The complete literature review will be available in 2010 on the Reports page.

A selection of important citations listed chronologically, with each citation linked to the online document, is available on the Timelines page. A timeline of documents produced by the provinces and territories is also available.
