About the event

IOB and KUNO welcome you to engage in an open conversation about the findings of the IOB evaluation ‘Trust, Risk and Learn. Evaluation of the humanitarian assistance given by The Netherlands – Funding and Diplomacy 2015-2021’. It will be an opportunity to discuss the findings with the lead authors.

You can find the report on the IOB website, in Dutch and English. Here you will also find a summary, underlying studies and reports, and the Letter to Parliament with the response of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to this evaluation.

The main research question: To what extent does Dutch humanitarian policy contribute to achieving humanitarian goals, and how does it do so?
