Conceptualising and Measuring the Success and Failure of Political Settlements
September 3, 2015 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
A Global Justice Academy Lab Event
The Political Settlements Research Programme (of which the GJA is a lead partner) (www.politicalsettlements.org), and the Edinburgh Centre for Constitutional Law are housing a round table, on 3 September 2015, 2.00pm, Lorimer Room, School of Law, Old College, South Bridge, Edinburgh.
Conceptualising and Measuring the Success and Failure of Political Settlements: Constitutions and Peace Agreements
This round table will examine how we might understand and measure ‘success and failure’ in implementing constitutions and peace agreements. Are these documents susceptible to measurement, what are the appropriate indicators or evidence that could be used, and how feasible is to gather this evidence (in what form does it exist)? The round table will comprise input from three academics actively involved in trying to design projects of measurement for constitutions and peace-agreements.
Each of the speakers will speak to why measurement might be important, what measurements might be useful, and set out innovative attempts to measure, and the conceptual and practical difficulties they are thinking through in these attempts.
The roundtable is a part of an on-going ‘Evidence, Indicators and Measurement lab’, hosted by the GJA which aims to network those with research projects which examine the process of measuring.
