The production and use of indicators in global governance is increasing rapidly. Users include public international development agencies such as the World Bank and the United Nations, national governmental aid agencies such as the US government’s Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC), global businesses and investors; bodies concerned with assessing or enforcing compliance with existing legal standards such as human rights treaty monitoring bodies, advocacy groups including many NGOs, and various scientific or expert communities, especially in the field of political science. Examples of prominent indicators and their producers or promulgators include: Doing Business Indicators produced by the International Finance Corporation (a member of the World Bank Group); Governance Indicators, including The Control of Corruption and Rule of Law, under the imprimatur
of the World Bank; the Millennium Development Goals indicators under UN
auspices; the Corruption Perceptions Index created by Transparency International; the Human Development Index (HDI) produced by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP); the Trafficking in Persons indicators produced by the US State Department; and various indicators produced by consultancies specializing in advising investors on political risks. The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights has explored possibilities of developing indicators for several core human rights.
