Results-oriented Governance in Portugal (2000-2022): Trends from IE-ULisboa research

Different policy instruments support different modes of governance. In Portugal, along the late 25 years, performance assessments (of students, schools, system) have become major tools for the emergence of Results-oriented Governance (RoG). Based on studies from IE-ULisboa’ researchers, the paper suggests 3 major trends related to RoG processes: increase of transnational governance; competition between RoG interpretations; rise of intra-national communicative policy spheres and non-governmental knowledge-based agency. Finally, the paper discus 3 possible developments: radicalization (reinforcement of quasi-market modes of governance); recombination (with other tools); fragmentation (competition between forms of evaluation, namely between performance assessment, informative and multilateral models).
