The Governance Assessment Portal is a virtual resource center for indicators, assessment frameworks and country studies. Here you can find data, articles, tools, statistics and case studies on measuring democratic governance. Get in contact with international experts and initiatives. Learn how to develop an index to monitor performance of parliament, public administration, sectors and services, where to find surveys for evaluating corruption, how to conduct a baseline for democracy, when to advocate for evidence based policy reform on local governance and decentralization in your country, and more. The GAP is always on the lookout for new strategies and techniques for evidence-based advocacy and how to develop and utilize data on governance in campaigning. Christopher Wilson has researched human rights jurisprudence regarding transnational corporations, investigated corporate activity for the Norwegian Pension Fund’s Council on Ethics, coordinated NGO training in new media for the Global Forum on Freedom of Expression, and now works as an information consultant for the UNDP, where he is designing a social media strategy and online community for activists who use democracy assessments to drive democratic reform in their countries. Current interest is in the use of popular media and new technologies for activism at the national and subnational level, especially the co-option of cute kitten technologies.
