What evaluations do we review?

Our review focuses on evaluations that meet the following criteria:

Evaluative character
The systematic and objective assessment of an on-going or completed project, programme or policy, its design, implementation, and results in relation to specified evaluation criteria.” (OECD/DAC)
“Systematic and objective assessment” are defined in a fairly loose manner, as an organised assessment that includes efforts to reduce bias. 
Evaluation context
International development and humanitarian interventions.
Types of interventions
Interventions explicitly tackling any form of VAWG, as the main or secondary purpose.
Language of the evaluation report
Evaluations completed in 2008 or later.
Publication status
Published and unpublished evaluations.

So far, as of 16 October 2013, our mix of web-search and snowballing via e-mail contacts and the social web has yielded more than 100 evaluation reports that meet our criteria. Our scoping phase ends in late October. If you happen to have an evaluation report that meets the criteria above, please forward it to the review team (click on the link to get to our address), possibly including e-mail addresses of the evaluator and the evaluation commissioners.
