The discussed paper aims to put forward an effective approach to measuring the performance of international construction joint ventures (ICJVs) by using analytic network process (ANP), and the research was conducted under a scenario that there is no consensus on the definition, measures, and variables of the performance of ICJVs. This discussion aims to talk over related issues focusing on the definition and adopted assessment criteria of ICJVs and the technical point of using ANP.
