When Rights Issues and Responsibilities are at Stake: Evaluation in Non-conflict and Conflict-prone Territories

6TH AfrEA CONFERENCE, JANUARY 9 – 13, 2012

ACCRA INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE CENTRE, GHANA



ABSTRACT:

This panel will present lessons from experiences of evaluation in a number of countries with mature to start-up monitoring and evaluation capacity, and spread across both non-conflict and conflict-prone territories. It will be delivered by practitioners whose evaluation works span diverse geographical locations. Drawing from individual contexts of their own countries of origin, panelists will build up the discussion around each individual background, matched up against experiences of practice in different regions.

The discussion will include brief overviews of each study area and individual presentations by panelists representing most of the following countries' evaluation contexts, namely; Afghanistan, Australia, Kenya, Madagascar, New Zealand, Palestine, Philippines, Timor Leste and United Arab Emirates.

More specifically, presentations will address issues related to the following:

a) Varied faces of evaluation in countries with contrasting perspectives on the concept of human rights;

b) Consideration of rights issues and responsibilities in evaluation; and

c) Learning from lessons already learned

The research basis for these presentations are different milieus of practice that combine experiences from field, programs and organizations; evaluation designs; extensive engagement with evaluation stakeholders; and accounts of M&E development in different countries. The challenges of evaluation and the manner by which rights and responsibilities issues were dealt with will be discussed, -all drawing from collective evaluation experiences. Lessons from diverse evaluation contexts, designs, and approaches adopted by the evaluators could provide valuable insights and potentially useful information from which other evaluators may benefit from.
