Two new evaluation projects are currently underway at TEI. A developmental evaluation (DE) of UNICEF’s Peacebuilding Education Advocacy Program (PBEA) is being conducted in Myanmar and in Ethiopia. PBEA is a partnership between UNICEF and the Government of the Netherlands. The PBEA effort recognizes that conflict and national insecurity are significant development challenges; and, that education has the potential to strengthen and build and strengthen the resilience, coping and tolerance capacities of children, parents, teachers and communities; and, to promote equality, equity and social cohesion. Developmental Evaluation was purposefully selected as education advocacy is an innovative approach to peacebuilding. An examination of how developmental evaluation adds to what is known using a more traditional outcome evaluation and case study approach will also be conducted. TEI is also partnering with IMPAQ International (project prime) on a USAID funded project in Bosnia and Herzegovina (MEASURE BiH) to strengthen local M&E capacity and to develop a Center of Excellence in evaluation and applied social science research in the Bosnian region. TEI will be working with IMPAQ International to provide evaluation training and consultation in support of a learning by doing instructional and mentoring approach.
