The Kvinna till Kvinna Foundation has promoted women’s rights since 1993. Today, we are one of the world’s leading women’s rights organisations. We operate in conflict-affected areas in the Middle East, Africa, Europe and the South Caucasus, where we support more than 150 brave partner organisations. Together, we work to strengthen women’s influence and power, end violence against women and promote human rights.
The objective of Kvinna till Kvinna’s global policy and advocacy work is to leverage the substantial programme work that Kvinna till Kvinna carries out in 20 conflict affected countries. Kvinna till Kvinna aims to inform and influence the Women, Peace and Security agenda and policies on women’s rights, peace and security based on the experiences of our partner organisations. We also aim to support our 150 partner organisations to strategically use international policies, agreements and conventions to create change and improve women’s rights at the regional, national and local level. Kvinna till Kvinna aims to strengthen the global capacity for women’s participation and influence in peacebuilding. The programme is intended to focus our advocacy on where our added value is the greatest and our impact can be most meaningful.
The programme that is to be evaluated is the Sida-funded programme “Gendered Aspects of Peace and Security”, that has been ongoing since September 2019 and is ending December 2021.
The consultant/s is to evaluate the influence of Kvinna till Kvinna’s international advocacy, through our engagement in international advocacy forums regarding WPS and women’s rights and through support to partner organisations. As the programme period is limited, the evaluation of the impact of the programme will be limited in scope in relation to long-term advocacy outcomes.
The evaluation will also assess internal policy and advocacy processes within Kvinna till Kvinna in regard to learning and policy development. Furthermore, the evaluation will provide Kvinna till Kvinna with input to forthcoming advocacy programmes.
The evaluation is expected to provide answers to ascertain results on outcome and impact level as well as assess the effectiveness and relevance of this advocacy programme.
The assignment will be conducted through (digital) interviews with approximately 10-12 relevant stakeholders from partner organisations, Kvinna till Kvinna staff and international stakeholders (EU, UN, Ministry of Foreign Affairs etc.) In order to complement the interviews, a desk study of available material regarding the programme is necessary.
The methodology of the assignment is up to the consult to decide and for Kvinna till Kvinna to approve, however the assignment will ensure that the methodology approach includes an understanding of feminist approach, based on key values of: transparency, intersectionality, inclusiveness, sensitivity and a right-based approach.
