La Declaración del Milenio de las Naciones Unidas incluye el objetivo de garantizar la sostenibilidad del medio ambiente, lo que refleja su importancia actual como elemento clave de las políticas de desarrollo impulsadas desde los organismos internacionales. Este trabajo analiza la evolución reciente de un grupo de países con respecto a la incorporación de los principios del desarrollo sostenible en sus políticas nacionales. Para ello, se construye un indicador compuesto a partir de una serie de indicadores parciales seleccionados por los expertos de la ONU para el seguimiento de los Objetivos de Desarrollo del Milenio (ODM).

    ABSTRACT: The open method of co-ordination (OMC) intends to enhance EU Member States'performance on social inclusion. In this context a set of commonly agreed performance indicators plays an important role. While the communicative power of a synthetic indicator has been recognized, several objections have been raised against such a construction. In this article, we argue that a set of separate indicators can in principle be combined into a meaningful synthetic performance index without giving up on the notion of subsidiarity, and without fundamentally impairing the peer pressure incentives that constitute an important rationale for OMC. We complement the presentation of the conceptual framework with a number of empirical applications, thereby indicating how the basic method may be instrumental for policy benchmarking practice.

    ABSTRACT: This paper provides a review of the evolution, development and future research directions on the use of weights restrictions and value judgements in Data Envelopment Analysis. The paper argues that the incorporation of value judgements in DEA was motivated by applications of the method in real life organisations. The application driven development of the methods has led to a number of different approaches in the literature which have inevitably different uses and interpretations. The paper concentrates on the implications of weights restrictions on the efficiency, targets and peer comparators of inefficient Decision Making Units. The paper concludes with future research directions in the area of value judgements and weights restrictions.
