Workshop Global Governance by Indicators. Measuring Governance and Stateness

Dates:
  • Thu 13 Nov 2014 09.00 - 18.00
  • Fri 14 Nov 2014 09.00 - 18.00
  Add to Calendar 2014-11-13 9:00 2014-11-14 18:00 Europe/Paris Workshop Global Governance by Indicators. Measuring Governance and Stateness

The workshop will bring together scholars and policy-makers to promote mutual understanding and learning about the role of indicators in evaluating the quality of governance and stateness. The workshop will address three fundamental questions:
i. What do governance and stateness indicators measure?
ii. How are particular metrics created and further developed over time?
iii. How do they impact on decision- and policy-making?

First, the workshop aims to debate the meaning and measurement of 'governance' and 'stateness'. The discussion will try to map the impact of several normative quests on the manner in which indicators have been developed over time.

Second, the workshop will approach the technicality of 'measuring the unmeasurable', exploring the methodological and conceptual uncertainties faced by some of the most important metrics of governance and stateness.

And third, the workshop will debate the implications and use of governance indicators as the basis for political action and instruments capable of influencing policy-making.
