NEW – March 31, 2020: Publication of “Evaluating the Impact of Human Rights Training: Guidance on developing indicators”

We are pleased to inform you that Equitas and the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) have jointly published “Evaluating the Impact of Human Rights Training: Guidance on developing indicators”. This publication is designed to complement “Evaluating Human Rights Training Activities: A Handbook for Human Rights Educators”, jointly published in 2011 by the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) and Equitas.

This guidance tool aims at enhancing the competencies of human rights educators to develop appropriate indicators for measuring the results of their human rights education (HRE) programming and projects. This tool provides practical guidance on how to develop indicators in the context of evaluation of HRE programmes and includes a significant section on developing result statements for HRE programmes.

The guidance tool is organized as follows:

Part 1 – Human rights education, begins by exploring HRE in the global context. An effective approach to HRE and its contribution to social change in line with human rights is also addressed.

Part 2 – Impact of human rights education work, examines empowerment through HRE and goes on to explore how to articulate “good” short, medium and longer-term results that capture what we can reasonably achieve through our HRE work. Defining good results is key to developing effective indicators.

Part 3 – Indicators for human rights education, provides a step-by-step process for developing effective indicators for measuring the results of HRE.

Part 4 – Examples of human rights education indicators, presents an array of illustrative examples of indicators for measuring results of HRE that can be adapted for different contexts of HRE work.

The guidance tool can be downloaded here.
