Peer Review of the Evaluation Function of the Council of Europe

2010: Urs Zollinger was appointed as one of two experts to peer review the evaluation function of the Council of Europe.

In May 2010, the Council of Europe decided to organize a peer review of the institutional set-up and functioning of its recently established Evaluation Division. The purpose of the review - headed by the Swiss Foreign Ministry - was to suggest ways to strengthen the Organization’s evaluation function based on initial experience gathered. The expert team reviewed a number of policy documents and met with several key staff and government representatives in Strasbourg. Its recommendations were well received by the Evaluation Division and the top management of the Council of Europe. Contact: Urs Zollinger
