ABOUT THE PROJECT

International Organisations and the Rise of a Global Metrological Field

METRO for short, focuses on the rise of quantification as a key tool in the production of knowledge for transnational governance.


Although much literature on the field of the social production of metrics has examined the measurement tools themselves, we know less about the actors and institutions that construct and use these tools.
