A shared statement by peacebuilding organizations
International Day of Peace, 21 September 2018
The last year has seen significant global challenges, including an unprecedented level of humanitarian need, rising inequality and exclusion, growing climate change impacts, and increasing threats to our shared security. Nevertheless, the international community has taken important steps in addressing these challenges by implementing the recent bold commitments to foster sustainable peace.
The purpose of this briefing paper is to support evaluators in producing good evaluations by helping to think about values and ethics consciously and carefully. To do this, we’ll first look at the relationship between ethics and evaluation. We will then look at the big picture of what constitutes “good peacebuilding” or peacebuilding “done right.” We will also explore ethical issues involved in who determines the values and criteria by which we judge programs.
