A Human rights based approach for evaluating disability issues: Evaluation of an action plan for the inclusion of persons with disabilities in German development cooperation 

01-19-2018 05:59

Participants in the think session at the Evaluation 2017 conference applied a human rights-based approach to evaluations in the field of disability inclusion. They explored the requirements for creating consistency between the topic of the evaluation (i.e., inclusion of persons with disabilities) and its design and methodology. Based on inclusiveness as core principle, one central question was how to enable participation of persons with disabilities throughout the entire evaluation to inform both design and process of the evaluation. Participants had the opportunity to share their experiences and ideas with respect to the inclusion of persons with disabilities in evaluation practice. They also identified and reflected on opportunities and challenges of such efforts. To trigger reflection and thinking, an initial input provided participants with insights from the evaluation of the “Action Plan for the Inclusion of Persons with Disabilities,” a policy implemented by the German Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development.
