Colombia: Evaluability Study of Decree 2252 of 2017

For this case study, the Public Policy Evaluability Questionnaire designed by Protection International has been applied to Decree 2252 of 20171, a decree enacted by the Colombian government for the prevention and protection of human rights defenders, leaders of social and community organizations and movements, by governors and mayors.

The Decree 2252 of 2017 is brief, which facilitates its analysis as a case study, and addresses a novel and important aspect: the implementation of protection at the local level (by governors and mayors).
It is hoped that this study will contribute to identifying the dimensions and usefulness of the Evaluability Questionnaires for policies and programs for the protection of human rights defenders.

This case study is divided into four sections, which are developed below
I. Evaluability of the design with respect to the diagnosis of the problem.
II. Evaluability of the design with respect to the theory of change, logical framework or narrative of the program.
III. Conclusions
IV. Recommendations for improvement
