"Global Significance of Country-Led Indicators"
Fourth Annual Indicators Conference of the Justice Systems Workshop
September 30 - October 1, 2011
Harvard Kennedy School - Cambridge, Massachusetts
The Justice Systems Workshop brings together government officials and civil society leaders from countries around the world to design indicators of safety and justice and to use them in service of justice sector reform locally, nationally, and globally. The Workshop began in 2008 with participants from Jamaica, Nigeria, and Sierra Leone. In 2009 participants from Papua New Guinea joined the Workshop, and in 2010 we welcomed new participants from Bangladesh.
Each year the Program in Criminal Justice Policy and Management convenes a conference on indicators of safety and justice. The participants in the Justice Systems Workshop together with experts and officials working on other indicator projects in the justice sector.
Our focus for the 2011 conference was a review of the results of a second round of indicator development from teams in Jamaica, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Papua New Guinea, and Bangladesh. Also assessed was the emerging discipline of indicator development, focusing on the challenges of moving from prototype to indicator to impact.
There were panel discussions of the interaction between international norms and domestic priorities in indicator development projects, and also on how development institutions can both scale up and scroll down from the measures being developed.
