Existing governance indicators might suffer from "methodological nationalism", in that they focus exclusively on governance at the national level. The Governance Report dashboards provide empirical counterparts to a perspective that considers governance a multi-level and multi-actor phenomenon. The dashboards presented here try to compensate for the neglect of behaviour in the international arena and governance at the subnational level in existing measurements of governance. The Transnational Governance Dashboard consists of estimates of the more or less cooperative stance of countries in the international arena, focusing on international commitments as a manifestation of "responsible sovereignty" and on contributions to the production of global public goods. The City Governance Dashboard presents a set of indicators of social capital, inequality, impartiality, corruption, and public good provision for "global cities". The chapter provides a non-technical introduction to the methods and data that inform these two dashboards and highlights some of the patterns that emerge.

Keywords:   governance indicators, dashboards, responsible sovereignty, global public goods, social capital, inequality, impartiality, corruption, public good provision, global cities
