Anticipated Dates of Project: January 2024
Closing Date: 31st October 2023
STRONG (Sustainable, Target-group oriented, Resilient and Open NGOs with Good governance) Civil Society is a 3-year project implemented by Human Rights House Foundation (HRHF) that aims to strengthen the role that civil society plays in the democratisation processes in Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, and Ukraine. STRONG Civil Society is co-funded by the European Union and the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
As STRONG Civil Society implementation is coming to an end, HRHF seeks to assess the impact of project implementation for the purposes of accountability and organisational learning. The project should be evaluated with a view to point out successes and best practices, as well as identify recommendations and needs of future intervention in this area. In addition, the evaluation should also reflect on the impact of sub-grants on increased cooperation, including cross-border cooperation, between and among project beneficiaries.
Given that the project is implemented under DG NEAR Framework Partnership Agreement for Capacity Development of Civil Society Organisations in the Eastern Partnership, the evaluation should analyse the impact of the project on coordination, synergies, relations and information sharing with other framework partners and the bodies of the European Union such as DG NEAR and EU Delegations. The external evaluation will be an important part of HRHF’s reporting to DG NEAR and will help HRHF plan future interventions in this area.
The evaluator will need the following experience, skills and qualifications:
– Minimum 5 years experience in conducting evaluations and a proven record of conducting evaluations of EU funded projects.
– Experience undertaking evaluations of complex human rights programmes.
– Experience working in civil society and preferably in the human rights field, with strong knowledge of the human rights movement in Eastern Partnership countries and the Russian Federation.
– Fluent in English; Russian is a strong advantage (the evaluation report must be written in English).
