Abstract: The Chapter deals with the contribution of globally used indicator systems, in particular governance, environmental and MDG indicators, to the measurement of the risk of violent conflict. The author argues that instead of specialising on conflict indicators in a narrow sense, one should rather go for a highly public and transparent broad indicator set along the lines of a Sustainable Development Index; the reason being that only a mainstream index can exert media pressure on political actors.
