The 2022 Berggruen Governance Index (BGI) provides an improved conceptualization of governance which sees public goods provision resulting from the interplay of democratic accountability and state capacity. The BGI sees state capacity as the crucial link mediating between democratic accountability and public goods provision. It analyzes the relationship between the various components that contribute to performance, i.e., mechanisms of accountability, the state’s capacity to generate resources and enlist other actors, and the ability to provide public goods. The 2022 BGI report builds up from the indexes used in prior years which assessed basically on the impact of the qualities of governance, democracy, and life. The 2022 BGI report is limited to dataset for 2000-2019 of 134 countries for which reliable index scores for the three dimensions and their sub-dimensions can be extracted considering the multiyear lag in the data on tax revenue, health, education, public goods indicators on productive capacity, and environmental protection (2022 BGI).
