3 CONCLUSIONS In this chapter we have argued that impartiality provides a coherent, encompassing, universal and measurable conception of QoG. This leaves two very broad sets of questions on the table. The first concerns the consequences of impartiality. After all, the new research agenda on good governance and QoG has mostly been driven by a desire to understand what government institutions lead to preferable outcomes, such as peace, prosperity and general human well-being. Can QoG as impartiality live up to these expectations?
Indd 26 27/06/2012 13:20 Defining and measuring quality of government 27 Impartiality, in short, as an obligation of justice, may be said to mean being exclusively influenced by the considerations which it is supposed ought to influence the particular case in hand, and resisting the solicitations of any motives which prompt to conduct different from what those considerations would dictate. (Mill 1861 , p. 154) It should be underlined that the argument is not that impartiality is equivalent to “objectivity”.
Usually more attention is paid to the internal qualities of the laws themselves – such as the need for the law to be clear, understandable, general, internally consistent, prospective, stable, and so on – rather than to define the core principles that a political system must abide by in order to be in accordance with the rule of law. Searching for these core principles, one may instead turn to conceptions developed within political science. Weingast (1997, p. 245) defines the rule of law as “a set of stable political rules and rights applied impartially to all citizens”.
