Throughout the article, the relation between the governance indicators and the Human Development Level (HDL) is investigated. The analysis is conducted by using Panel Data Regression Method. The valid annual data of World Governance Index between the years 2002–2012 for 33 member and candidate countries of European Union (EU) is collected from World Bank’s official website. To measure HDL, data of Human Development Index (HDI) belonging to 2002-2012 term is gathered from United Nations Development Programme’s official website. The analysis concluded that, at least three of the governance indicators as Government Effectiveness, Regulatory Quality and Rule of Law have significant positive coefficients in the panel data regression model. It means that better governance performance for any country provides better performance at the HDL. It is evaluated that the results of the research may provide useful instrument both for public policy designers and for academics.
