Neue WAPS-Ausgabe: The Stateness Index (StIx) – Conceptual Design and Empirical Results


Soeben ist Ausgabe 15 der Würzburger Arbeitspapiere zur Politikwissenschaft und Soziologie (WAPS) erschienen. Theresa Paola Stawski und Hans-Joachim Lauth stellen darin Forschungsdesign und empirische Ergebnisse des neuen Stateness Index (StIx) vor.

Exploring and explaining diversity and patterns of stateness is crucial for understanding causes of efficiency, duration, or the collapse of a state. The new Stateness Index (StIx) contributes to the conceptual and analytical debate on stateness and state fragility. StIx is a tool for measuring stateness and state quality since 1950 that includes country-ranking through aggregated and disaggregated data to advance performance comparison and policy analysis. This article first sums up the main theoretical aspects, followed by descriptive results.
