01/12/2017 - 30/01/2018

Target country


Following the adoption in July 2016 of a joint commitment on EU support to security sector reform and the Council’s endorsement in November 2016, DCAF-ISSAT has been requested by the European Commission and the EEAS to share its expertise on Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) for SSR and support the process of drafting a guidance note for both Commission and EEAS projects, programmes and missions.
This assignment of ten non-consecutive days will identify similarities and differences in the way M&E is conducted in the EU external action on SSR, under Commission-managed external financial instruments and under CSDP respectively.
The assignment will result in a comparative document providing recommendations to bring CSDP and COM M&E frameworks closer. A presentation to EU member state representatives will also be conducted.
