Evaluation of the UN Women’s regional programme “Ending Violence against Women in the Western Balkans and Turkey: Implementing Norms, Changing Minds”

An independent evaluation of the regional programme “Ending Violence against Women in the Western Balkans and Turkey: Implementing Norms, Changing Minds” (February 2017 - January 2020) was conducted from July to December 2019 to provide systematic insights into the implementation process and results achieved. The purpose of the evaluation was to assess the performance of the programme; identify and document lessons learned, good practices and innovations, success stories and challenges; identify strategies for replication and up-scaling; provide actionable recommendations for future programme development and maximize ownership by partners; and assess the value added of UN Women regional programming. The evaluation adhered to the United Nations Evaluation Group (UNEG) norms and standards and ethical code of conduct and UN Women evaluation policy and guidelines, and applied OECD Development Assistance Committee (DAC) evaluation criteria.
