Abstract:

In a tight global economy, international development actors face growing pressure to improve evaluation. Evaluators of media interventions in conflict environments face special challenges: collapsed timelines, fluid conditions, and travel constraints. Recognizing this, thirty-four donors, implementers, and academics, all experienced in media initiatives in conflict environments, met in December 2010 in Caux, Switzerland, to improve evaluation of media's impact in ameliorating conflict. This report reviews the state of the art in evaluating media interventions in conflict and outlines the Caux Guiding Principles, established during the workshop. It stresses better evaluation as critical to media's usefulness in conflict prevention and peacebuilding.
