Langvatn, S.A. & Holst, C. (2022) Expert accountability: What does it mean, why is it challenging—and is it what we need? Constellations 00, 1– 16

When mistakes are made in political life, a standard remedy is to find someone to hold to account. But when experts who take part in governance make mistakes, they are seldom the ones who are held to account. So, is the solution to make these «unaccountable experts» more accountable? Not so quick, we argue. Case: The severe expert mistakes made in the preparation of the impact assessment report for opening the South Eastern Barents Sea for petroleum activity.

Holst, C., & Langvatn, S. A. (2021). Descriptive representation of women in international courts. Journal of Social Philosophy, 00, 1– 18

"Should Blacks Represent Blacks, and Women Represent Women? A Contingent "Yes" (Jane Mansbridge 1999). In a new article, Cathrine Holst and I revisit Mansbridge's article, which presented a systematic framework for evaluating the costs and benefits of such descriptive representation. Mansbridge developed her framework with elected assemblies in mind.

We look at how the calculus changes when the question is descriptive representation of women in international courts. For this type of institution, we argue, some of the costs of descriptive representation become costlier, and some of the benefits become weaker.
