Abstract : In this paper, we point out that explainability is useful but not sufficient to ensure the legitimacy of algorithmic decision systems. We argue that the key requirements for high stakes decision systems should be justifiability and contestability. We highlight the conceptual differences between explanations and justifications and suggest different ways to operationalize justifiability and contestability.
