In partnership with the Berggruen Institute. 

About this event

It is our pleasure to invite you to an international conference that looks at the newly developed Berggruen Governance Index (BGI) in the context of wide range of indicator and global data systems, from Varieties of Democracy to the Quality of Government, and from the World Value Survey to indicators developed by the World Bank and other international organizations.

The BGI is the centerpiece of a multi-year project jointly run by the Berggruen Institute and UCLA’s Luskin School of Public Affairs.  It examines the relationship between quality of democracy, state capacity, and quality of life in over 140 countries over an extended period. We have invited an international group of academics and experts from leading indicator projects and data systems to explore opportunities for future research and cooperation.

The executive summary of the Index is here, and a fuller report can be accessed here.
