Evaluation of IPS Communication Foundation’s work within freedom of expression in Turkey
The evaluation rationale is to provide input to the preparation of a potential new phase of partnership between Sida and IPS. The current agreement period between Sida and IPS is coming to an end during 2022 and IPS will send a new proposal to the Embassy during the second half of 2022. As noted above there has been no previous external Sida-led evaluation of the work of IPS, and therefore an evaluation should be done at this point in time, and before entering into a potential new agreement with IPS. The evaluation will also provide input into the operationalization of the Strategy for Sweden’s reform cooperation with the Western Balkans and Turkey for 2021– 2027, which is on-going and where further support within the area of freedom of expression is foreseen.
