Evaluating Political Party Programming

Evaluating Political Party Programming

Supporting the emergence of an open, democratic political system in the new Republic of South Sudan is a key challenge for the international community, and the role of political parties will be essential in this process. Integrity has recently completed an evaluation of the International Republican Institute’s (IRI) seven-year programme to support the development of a political party system in South Sudan and their work with the National Assembly and the electoral system.

The evaluation team travelled to Juba, Rumbek and Yambio in October 2011 where they conducted focus groups and interviews with a large number of political stakeholders and recipients of IRI support. The evaluation employed both quantitative and qualitative tools and included an assessment of the progress made by IRI programming and a detailed contextual analysis of the evolution of the political system. The findings of the evaluation will inform the future direction and content of IRI’s programme in South Sudan.
