Christine Bell presented the Political Settlements Research Programme, and in particular its ‘Measuring Transformation’ work, at the University of Oxford on 1 and 2 June 2015. The Foundation for Law, Justice and Society through Professor Denis Galligan hosted a two-day workshop on ‘The Science of Constitutions: Measures of Success and Failure’, to explore the factors that determine successful constitution-making. The event was very useful for connecting with what is nascent innovative work on measurement in the constitutional and peace agreement field. During the visit to Oxford University, Christine Bell also met with Professor Richard Caplan who also has innovative measuring research on-going relating to peacebuilding.
