GOVT 595 - Evaluation & Conflict Resolutn
Effective monitoring and evaluation are critical for designing successful development projects, conflict resolution interventions as well as building sustainable peace and avoiding harm in the process. Yet assessing the effects of peace building interventions in volatile contexts can be a challenging endeavor. This course aims to provide an overview of the leading organizational, practical and theoretical approaches to the evaluation of conflict resolution initiatives. The course will approach monitoring and evaluation from a reflective perspective and will introduce theories of change, indicators, monitoring, evaluation design, and various tools for reflective practice. The course will focus on applied research; students will meet with leading practitioners, review evaluation frameworks from development, humanitarian and peace building agencies, and submit case studies of evaluation methodology and practice in the organization or project of their choice.  At the end of the course students will have a better understanding of key elements of project design, monitoring, evaluation and challenges thereof.
