Our paper, Measuring the Rule of Law: A Comparison of Indicators, is part of a broader literature on the phenomenon of rule of law indicators (Skanning 2010; Merkel 2012; Møller and Skaaning 2014; Rothstein 2014) and our findings are in many ways consistent with those of earlier scholars. Yet we also believe that a continuing conversation on indicators is critical in an era defined by what Merry (2016) calls the “Seductions of Quantification.”
