Programme Evaluation - International Commission against Impunity in Guatemala (CICIG)

United Nations mandate in Guatemala 15/07/2015 - 15/11/2015

In the second half of 2015, ISSAT supported UNDP to complete an evaluation of the UN-Sponsored International Commission against Impunity in Guatemala (CICIG).  This is the first evaluation of CICIG in eight years of operations, and comes at a time where the role of CICIG has become very influential in Guatemala. The evaluation team was led by a female ISSAT Roster member and supported by two other evaluators. A two-week mission to Guatemala was completed in August. In the process, 117 persons from the government, international community and local civil society were interviewed. In total, 40% of the persons interviewed were women; this included representatives from Indigenous (Mayan) NGOs and government agencies dealing with violence against women. Feedback from the mandators (UNDP and a group of 15 government donors) regarding the deliveries have been very positive to date.
