But it is clear that this is an area calling for much more analytic rigor. As the interest in good governance rises, the need to develop suitable tools for evaluating specific governance systems in these terms becomes a higher priority. Macro-level consequences So far, this discussion of effectiveness and performance has concentrated on the evaluation of discrete governance systems treated as mechanisms created to address more or less well-defined problems. But there is another important line of thinking that approaches the issue of performance at a macro-level, focusing on the roles that comprehensive governance systems, or what some call basic structures of governance, play in society as a whole (Milner 2005).
What would have happened regarding the relevant problem in the absence of the creation and implementation of the governance system? Second, governance systems almost always operate in settings characterized by complex causality. Clusters of interactive factors, including governance systems, typically play a role in determining the content of collective outcomes in specific settings (Young 2002a). Thus, a governance system that works well in one setting may fail to solve problems in other settings, and vice versa.
Conversely, governance systems that perform well in terms of various standards of good governance may be treated with a measure of respect, even if they produce mediocre results in terms of solving the problems that led to their creation. Accountability is a matter of the extent to which managers report to the public on their efforts to solve problems and take responsibility for the results when things go wrong. The standard of democracy is met when the system allows for regular opportunities for citizens to express their views on results; it is not a standard pertaining to the nature of the results per se.
