Evaluation of the Strengthening Human Rights and Peace Research and Education in ASEAN/Southeast Asia (SHAPE-SEA) programme
"The Strengthening Human Rights and Peace Research and Education in ASEAN/Southeast Asia" (SHAPE-SEA) contributes to a culture of peace and human rights in Southeast Asia through research, education, informed policy advocacy and capacity building of academics, researchers and students in the region. Established by two University networks, SHAPE-SEA implements activities relating to research, publication, capacity building and outreach, and education on human rights and peace, in Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam and Timor-Leste.
The Embassy of Sweden in Bangkok engaged FCG Sweden to evaluate the SHAPE-SEA programme. The Embassy has supported the programme since its inception in 2015. The purpose of the evaluation was to evaluate SHAPE-SEA’s effectiveness, relevance, impact and efficiency, and provide input towards the design of a second phase of the programme and to give the Embassy and Sida’s Unit for Research Cooperation information for an upcoming assessment and preparation of a potential new phase of the contribution.
