On July 6-7, 2015, the IILJ at NYU School of Law convened a conference on indicators and the ecology of governance. The conference had three objectives: to take stock of and analyze key ideas from very recent work in the field; to bring together interested scholars and celebrate the launch of several recent books on indicators in global governance; and above all to explore promising directions in current and future research, with a particular focus on the dynamics or ecology of governance in which indicators are one of several competing technologies.
