Governance by Indicators

This chapter discusses the effects and operation of indicators that are used to guide and measure the work of humanitarian relief agencies in their on-the-ground operations in Haiti. It examines two major sets of standards that were used as a form of self-regulation by several groups of major international non-governmental organizations (NGOs) — such as the Sphere indicators — that are used by primary donors to guide certain decisions. This chapter also introduces the Sphere Handbook, which contains some regulatory silences.

Keywords:   effects and operation, humanitarian relief agencies, non-governmental organizations, Sphere indicators, Sphere Handbook, regulatory silences
