16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence- November 25-December 10, 2007
"DEMANDING IMPLEMENTATION-CHALLENGING OBSTACLES: END VIOLENCE AGAINST
Today we kick off discussion around the fourth thinking point within
this year's 16 Days of Activism Theme
**Thinking point 4: Evaluating the Impact and effectiveness of work to
prevent violence against women- identifying the successes and the gaps**
In order to help facilitate the next few days of discussion on this
issue I am sending for your consideration the following points:
- Do you think that it is possible to measure the impact of the work
done to end violence against women nationally, regionally and globally?
-What methods has your organization or network developed to help measure
the impact of your work to end violence against women?
-What are some of the challenges you encounter in evaluating your work?
-What resources are needed to make evaluation more efficient? Who are
the sources of these resources? (e.g other human rights groups, states,
donors, regional bodies)
- Do you feel that the movement to end violence against women can be
strengthened by dedicating more time to evaluating our own progress?
- What role can we play to support each other in evaluating the impact
of our work to end violence against women?
I look forward to a dynamic and interactive discussion from you all over
the next few days!
