Detailbild zu :  Governing by numbers: Key indicators and the politics of expectations, Workshop, October 5-7, 2017, Halle
Politics in the 20th century created a whole array of indicators, such as gross domestic product (GDP) or unemployment indicators, that became crucial for the structuration of entire policy fields. Politics in the 21st century, inspired by the new public management discourse, complemented this trend by developing not only more indicators but also by inventing new forms of regulation and new ways of modelling political expectations about the future.

In this workshop we seek to advance our knowledge about the use of indicators in politics by focusing especially on institutionalization processes of key indicators and particularly on the relevance of key indicators to a `politics of expectations .
