Legal Connotations of the Trichotomy Responsibility-Liability-Accountability

Mirela Costache


The objective of this research is to examine in brief the relationship between responsibility, liability and accountability, based on the conceptualization of these concepts and the role that they play in asserting and maintaining the social order. Viewed from the comparative side, the approach will be directed to areas where we find the full assertion of the three concepts, thus the perspective helps in supporting the principled nature, but at the same time complementary of the three concepts.
