Centre for Economy, Development and Law (CED&L), Government Law College, Thrissur, Kerala, is organising a Two Day Workshop on Methodology of Construction of Multidimensional Indices and practical Illustrations.
Register your interest before 12th February 2018, Monday.
The main aim of this workshop will be to introduce the participants to multidimensional indices, their theoretical justification and methodology of construction, as well as to present some practical examples in the field of development and law.
The first part of the workshop will be concerned with the general procedure of construction of multidimensional indices. Beginning from discussing the need for multidimensional indices especially in the area of development and well-being, the workshop will go on to focus on the various stages involved in their construction.
Two general approaches will be examined – the composite index approach with exogenous weights and the statistical approach with endogenous weights.
The second part of the workshop will be devoted to a detailed study of the Rule of Law index proposed by the World Justice Project. The workshop will move on to a close examination of the various dimensions forming the index as well as the indicators chosen for each dimension, and relate it to the general methodology discussed in the first part.
The complete workshop is designed to give insights into the relevance and construction of multidimensional indices.
