Excerpt
Governance is a key determinant for growth, development and poverty alleviation. These recent results are possible thanks to the emergence of the field of governance empirics, where various measures of governance have been put forth. Measuring governance is a major challenge because of its multi-dimensional character, as well as its conceptual and definitional issues. A variety of instruments to assess governance have emerged in recent years, resulting in new sets of measures and databases on governance. The relevant approach to be used varies depending on the key objective at hand, which may range from awareness-raising, defining priorities for action, or empirical research. In some cases, these empirical tools and the various objectives, rather than being mutually exclusive, are linked in complex ways, resulting in complementarities and synergies. This paper introduces an overall general framework for approaching the challenge of governance assessment and provides a systematic overview of the different methodologies and analytical resources available, from opinion polls to public sector in-depth diagnostic surveys.
