About the author (2010)

Matthew Flinders was awarded the Political Studies Association's Richard Rose
Prize 2004.
Judges' Citation
'Dr Flinders has focussed on a set of topics of central
relevance to British Government and politics: the
institutions and mechanisms of accountability and
responsibility. In doing so he has addressed an
interesting and important question in a fresh way. He
has combined a strong sense of the historical
evolution of the conventions of British government
since the mid-nineteenth century; shown how the
contemporary practice of British government has
diverged from the assumptions underlying these now
obsolete conventions; and identified multiple
mechanisms that have been invoked in attempts to fill
the gap left by parliamentary non-accountability. Flinders' publications show the ability to use relevant
concepts to clarify and organize information without
losing sight of ambiguities and complexities.'
