Good governance in organisations has long been a study as well as a practice,
and a number of institutions have invested a great deal of effort building a
methodology for comparative research and analysis on the issue. One of the
most comprehensive and prominent internationally is One World Trust:

“The One World Trust works to
make global governance more
accountable. With its Global
Accountability Project (GAP) the
One World Trust aims in particular
to generate wider commitment
amongst global organisations to
establish and adhere to common
principles

and

values

of
accountability in the relationship
with the people they affect; and to
strengthen the capacity of civil
society to engage in global policy
and decision making processes. The
2007 Global Accountability Report is
the fourth major report published by
the Trust as part of this project.

The Global Accountability Report is
an annual assessment of the
capabilities of 30 of the world’s most
powerful global organisations from
the

intergovernmental,

non-
governmental, and corporate sectors
to be accountable to civil society, affected communities, and the wider public. The Report
uses the four dimensions of the Global Accountability Framework – transparency,
participation, evaluation, and complaint and response mechanisms – as the basis of the
assessment. Over time, the Report will reassess organisations to track changes in
accountability and highlight progress.”

One World Trust’s methodology draws from a variety of sources in order to
score an organisation: interviews and internal documentation from the
organisation, secondary data on the organisation from other sources, and
expert and stakeholder input. There are numerous international and external
verification loops throughout the process that allow for qualitative input to
the quantitative assessment.

The final result is a maximum score of 100 points, with ‘High Performers’
defined as “organisations have the most consistently developed
accountability policies and management systems scoring over 50 percent in at
