ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the possibilities and limitations of transparency in global governance. It is said that transparency is boasted as a tool of accountability, a way to make global institutions more responsive and an instrument to fill globalization's democracy shortfall. Moreover, the paper discusses several cases in which policy makers and activists envision for transparency must be seen as a conduit to regulation, not as regulation itself. It is suggested that understanding transparency mechanisms is important because it represents a promising direction to develop innovative governance tools. However, it is analyzed that transparency may be an overused and poorly understood buzzword. It is stated that beneath the rhetoric lies a valuable tool for transnational accountability.
