Lattanzio KIBS joins Council of Europe with the assessment on Commissioner's work to promote human rights

The Commissioner for Human Rights is the independent institution established in 1999 by the Council of Europe with the aim of promoting awareness of and respect for human rights in the 46 member states. The institution implements its mandate through dialogue with national authorities, thematic work and advocacy activities.

More details

Lattanzio KIBS supports the Council of Europe with an evaluation to examine the relevance, effectiveness, efficiency, coherence and impact of the Commissioner's work in promoting human rights.

The evaluation is conducted with a mixed-methodological approach involving data collection in the field but also remotely, through tools such as: desk research, surveys, and interviews with informants of interest.

The activities of the evaluation team include:

  • A qualitative benchmarking exercise among four organizations: the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, the EU Fundamental Rights Agency, the UN Special Rapporteur on Human Rights Defenders, and the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights
  • Four Country missions in four selected member States
  • Case studies focusing on the following themes: migration, artificial intelligence, protection of human rights activists, women's rights and gender equality

Project Impact

Lattanzio's KIBS assignment affects the coherence between the goals and work of the Commissioner for the Promotion of Human Rights. The evaluation exercise allows for better targeting of work already underway where it appears necessary to focus more on specific intervention actions.
