Webinar: Developing and Implementing Evaluation Support Tools 

9 July 2024, 11:00-12:30 CEST


This webinar in collaboration with the Global Public Policy Institute (GPPi)andPrEvaloffers space to discuss how to develop effective evaluation support tools to close capacity gaps and enable more widespread, high-quality evaluation in the fields of extremism prevention, democracy promotion and civic education. 

Sophie Ebbecke and Sarah Bressan (GPPi/PrEval) will share results and recommendations on practices, structures, and innovations in evaluating P/CVE and related activities from a new study across 14 countries around the world. 

One of the study’s key findings is that actors in the field oftentimes lack the expertise, knowledge and experience to commission, conduct or support evaluations in this field and translate the findings into learning processes. For an additional report, the research team is therefore currently analyzing good practices for developing effective evaluation capacity support tools. 

In this webinar, they will share emerging findings, examples of innovative capacity building initiatives, and invite participants to share and discuss their experiences with evaluation toolkits, guides, trainings, networks and other support tools to understand how to close persisting capacity gaps. The webinar will also provide the opportunity to listen to Professor Adrian Cherney from the University of Queensland in Australia, who will share his experiences developing toolkits and a recent P/CVE evaluation training in Australia.  

The webinar is part of the research and transfer project PrEval (Evaluation and Quality Assurance in Extremism Prevention, Democracy Promotion and Civic Education: Analysis, Monitoring, Dialogue), which develops formats and structures to strengthen P/CVE evaluation and quality assurance and is funded by the German Ministry of the Interior.
