International Rule of Law Indicators – A Mixed Method Approach

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

There is a proliferation of indices designed to measure the operation of justice institutions developed for use in diverse international settings. These indicator systems typically draw on information gathered from public and expert surveys, observations, analysis of existing data, and administrative records. Most existing approaches build their measures on one or two of these data types and a number collate information from existing indices. However, each of these sources of information has inherent strengths and weaknesses related to the accuracy of reports, ease of data collection, sensitivity to change, and validity of measures. The Vera/Altus Indicator Project collated information on the rule of law in Chile, India, Nigeria and the U.S. using a set of 60 cross-referenced indicators drawn from multiple and varied data sources. This approach is designed to limit the systematic biases that may occur if measures are drawn from a single source. In this paper we explore the benefits and limitations of a mixed method approach using illustrative examples from each of the study sites.
