Vorlesungsreihe im Sommersemester 2017

The Coordination Unit 
"Sustainable Development in International Cooperation"
of the University of Bonn 


the German Institute for Development Evaluation (DEval)

invite you to the lecture series

"Evaluation and Evidence Based Policy Making in Germany"



The lecture series „Evaluation and Evidence Based Policy Making in Germany“ is organized by the Coordination Unit „Sustainable Development in International Cooperation“ of the University of Bonn (Koordinierungsstelle für Nachhaltige Entwicklung in der internationalen Zusammenarbeit der Universität Bonn) and the German Institute for Development Evaluation (Deutsches Evaluierungsinstitut der Entwicklungszusammenarbeit / DEval). In the lecture series, evaluation experts will analyze and discuss the methods and role of evaluation in the context of German public policy.


The Coordination Unit was originally funded by the Ministry of Innovation, Science and Research of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia (MIWF NRW). The goals of the Coordination Unit are to foster networks and synergies with stakeholders from Bonn and North Rhine-Westphalia in the field of sustainable development, to promote the topic of sustainable development in teaching and research at the University of Bonn, to pool and strengthen activities in the field of sustainable development at the University of Bonn and to support and coordinate cooperation with universities and research institutions in developing and emerging countries.


The German Institute for Development Evaluation supports the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and its implementing organizations, as well as non-governmental bodies in their efforts to design development projects on the basis of evidence, to present project results in a more transparent way and to learn from evaluations the lessons needed for future improvements to policy in this field. The goal of DEval is to independently evaluate the performance of German development cooperation interventions. 



The detailed program of the lecture series „Evaluation and Evidence Based Policy Making in Germany“ is available here.
