GORDON RAPOPORT, Sara. Transparency and accountability of civil organizations in Mexico. Rev. Mex. Sociol [online]. 2011, vol.73, n.2, pp.199-229. ISSN 2594-0651.

The purpose of this text is to explore certain factors and conditions that help or hinder accountability by civil society organizations and to examine the ways in which this accountability is practiced. The article examines the relationship between external variables -legal framework and access to funding- and internal variables -size, professionalization- and accountability. It analyzes information from a questionnaire applied to organizations affiliated to the Mexican Center for Philanthropy (Cemefi) which operates in Mexico City.

Keywords : accountability; civil society organizations; professionalization.
