Description:

The QoG Institute is an independent research institute within the Department of Political Science at the University of Gothenburg. Overall 30 researchers conduct and promote research on the causes, consequences and nature of Good Governance and the Quality of Government - that is, trustworthy, reliable, impartial, uncorrupted and competent government institutions.

The main objective of our research is to address the theoretical and empirical problem of how political institutions of high quality can be created and maintained. A second objective is to study the effects of Quality of Government on a number of policy areas, such as health, the environment, social policy, and poverty.

The QoG EU EQI Data is the result of a survey of corruption and governance at the regional level within the EU and one of the most complete quantitative estimate of QoG to date. The study was conducted during 2010 as a part of the EU Commission’s tri-annual “Cohesion Report” and during 2013 as part of ANTICORRP. It covers all 28 member states and 172 NUTS 1 and NUTS 2 regions in 2010, while the 2013 study included
