Executive Workshop
Evidence Based Policy on Human Rights

measuring impact, assessing progress

22 May 2009
(by invitation only)

The collaboration between the Measurement and Human Rights (MHR) Program at Carr Center for Human Rights Policy - Harvard Kennedy School and EGAP/Campus State of Mexico at Tec de Monterrey focuses on developing evidence based human rights policies addressing the challenge of how we can measure progress, impact and success in promoting human rights.

The workshop will help government and civil society executives think conceptually about evidence based policy on human rights. Through a combination of presentations, case studies, and group discussions, participants will examine the rationale behind measurements and gain valuable insight into its critical aspects.


Executive level management from government (local and federal) and civil society organizations, as well as academics and international organizations working in the area of human rights and policy making.


  • Promote actions towards the implementation of evidence based policies in the area of human rights

  • Support a closer collaboration among policy makers, civil society and academia exploring complementarities and synergies

Workshop Methods:

Participants will build skills through group interaction in case study discussions, simulations, and team exercises. The personal relationships forged during these highly interactive programs enable lifelong professional opportunities and friendships.

Participants should register in time, providing required information
