Global Review of Programme Work Methods of the Raoul Wallenberg Institute of Human Rights and Humanitarian Law
The Raoul Wallenberg Institute of Human Rights and Humanitarian Law (RWI) is an independent academic institution, with a mission to contribute to a wider understanding of and respect for human rights and international humanitarian law. Sida is the largest donor to RWI, contributing to approximately 82 percent of its total budget in 2016. Sida and RWI have cooperated since the early 1990s, presently covering bilateral and regional programmes in Asia, Africa, the Middle East and Eastern Europe.
To further support the cooperation between Sida and RWI, this assignment was a review of RWI’s Sida-financed programmes in order to strengthen learning, at both RWI and Sida, with regard to work methods used in RWI’s international programmes.
The objectives of the review were to:
- Establish the relevance of the work methods used by RWI, and how effective they are for achieving intended institutional human rights capacity development results of sustainable nature, identifying areas of particularly strong performance as well as those in need of being enhanced.
- Provide recommendations, on the basis of lessons drawn from the above findings, in terms of suggestions for relevant improvements of work methods for future positive results achievement in the areas assessed and for improving learning within RWI of positive as well as negative experiences of work methods used.
The assignment was carried out in autumn of 2017.
