Impact assesments

Organizational impact assessment in specific fields has been one of the most difficult areas of measurement, according to practitioners.

Currently, the community of human rights practitioners is comprised of two basic groups: those who have begun to develop quite sophisticated models of impact assessment and those who still cling to the belief that measurement is fundamentally at odds with the culture of human rights activism.

The Measurement & Human Rights Program seeks to reach out to everyone, especially those who occupy a middle ground, believing that measurement is a valuable endeavor and yet lacking the resources to realize their measurement goals.
