Event Details

IDEAS is proud to present its much awaited and timely book on “Evaluation in Contexts of Fragility, Conflict and Violence”. With the Covid-19 pandemic this book is relevant all across the globe, but it could be specifically targeted to the two billion people living in countries where development outcomes are affected by multiples layers of fragility. This book presents an interesting argument that ‘evaluation’ – like development aid itself – can unintentionally exacerbate tensions in ways that can negatively affect people and institutions if care is not taken in designing and approaching it with conflict sensitivity.

This book presents real time case examples and practical guidance from evaluation professionals of various organisations and regions, showing a diversity of perspectives and experiences on sensitive issues when measuring change in unpredictable, complex, and violent situations. Mitigating these challenges can entail significant effort, and can sometimes require redefining the direction, purpose, or scope of the evaluation. Read more about it in this book of its own kind.

Hur Hassnain provided overall leadership and management in writing and developing the book. The book’s co-authors were Anupam Anand, Inga-Lill Aronsson (IDEAS board member), Sarah Davies, Gabrielle Duffy, Lauren Kelly, Wanda Krause, Keiko Kuji-Shikatani, Marco Lorenzoni, Rhiannon McHugh, Emma Rotondo, Wendy Rowe, Simona Somma, Melinda Sutherland and Serge Eric Yakeu (IDEAS Vice-President).
