Practitioners, policy makers, academicians working in the field of human rights and everyone interested in result measurement of Human Rights programmes
During the last two years, a group of twenty international practitioners in the field of human rights has cooperated on gaining insight in how the results of their work can best be assessed. During two workshops, organised by Aim for Human Rights, ICCO and Context, international cooperation, their combined knowledge, experience and determination led to the production of a practical guide that addresses some of the core questions around the measurement of human rights programmes. In a systemic way the guide focuses on some conceptual issues, on the measurement of the relevance of human rights programmes, on organisational aspects and on the measurement of the results.
In this afternoon meeting the practical guide will be presented to Ms. Maryem van den Heuvel, head of the Human Rights department of the ministry of Foreign Affairs. Ms. Martha Meijer, director of Aim for Human rights will elaborate more on the subject of human rights measurement. Mr. Livingstone Sewanyana, director of FHRI Uganda, will go into the trajectory from the point of view of the participants to the trajectory and he will about his perspective on the importance of measuring human rights programmes.
