Public seminar 11 June 2018: Conflicts and complex crises - how evaluation contributes to learning

The Evaluation and Research Department (EVAL) of the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs together with the Evaluation Department of the Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation (Norad) held a public seminar dealing with conflicts and complex crises on June 11.

Development assistance organisations – governmental and non-governmental, bilateral and multilateral - are increasingly providing relief and aid in countries affected by conflicts and instability. Humanitarian efforts to help refugees and displaced people are undertaken against the background of complex crises in many fragile states. Considerable efforts are being made to seek durable solutions – e.g. through supporting African regional organisations - and several recent evaluations have investigated some of the opportunities and challenges encountered.

Based on a keynote address and summaries of four recent evaluations, participants were invited to debate these important issues.

The seminar took place on June 11, from 12.00-16.15, at Eigtveds Pakhus, Hall III, Asiatisk Plads 2, Copenhagen.
