Thematic Impact Evaluation for Conciliation Resources
Conciliation Resources is an independent international organisation working with people in conflict to prevent violence, resolve conflicts and promote peaceful societies. Conciliation Resources believes that building sustainable peace takes time. Conciliation Resources provides practical support to help people affected by violent conflict achieve lasting peace. Conciliation Resources requires an external consultant(s) to facilitate a strategic thematic impact evaluation focused on community-led peace structures.
The impact evaluation will use a comparative case-based design to understand, compare and document the impact of community-led peace structures over a 5-year timeframe (March 2013 to March 2018)in three contexts: Liberia, Central African Republic and Kenya. The impact evaluation will be a highly participatory process that will create opportunities for learning exchanges between Conciliation Resources programme teams, partners and members of the community-led peace structures.
The external evaluator(s) will travel to Liberia, Central African Republic and Kenya for the data collection phase of the evaluation in May/June 2018. Once the results of the evaluation have been analysed and documented, the evaluator(s) will facilitate a learning workshop and impact evaluation training for Conciliation Resources staff in London (June/July 2018).
For more information on the evaluation design, evaluation questions and proposed work plan, please refer to the Terms of Reference attached.
