Reference: Accountability key to gender gap, Bangkok Post, September 20, 2008

It is said that the best way to defend yourself is to go on the offensive and so the United Nations Development Fund for Women has chosen to describe their failure to stay on track with respect to their development goals as an "accountability crisis" because sovereign nations have not done what they had promised the Fund they would do. The blame is thus neatly and righteously deflected. Nobody plays the blame game better than the bureaucrats at the United Nations.
