The Réseau francophone de l'évaluation announces the launch of its call for proposals for its International Francophone Evaluation Forum 2019 (FIFE). Proposals for forums, presentations and stories, workshops and posters are welcome until June 30, 2019.
The FIFE2019 will take place in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso from November 12 to 15, 2019. This event brings together nearly 300 participants, from thirty countries. It offers fifty hours of work and formal debates between participants and speakers: parliamentarians, members of governments, administrative officials, technical and financial partners, civil society, academics and evaluators
The FIFE2019 will take place in a world in deep transformation and affected by multiple crises, in particular economic, humanitarian, migratory and geostrategic, consequences of a reconfiguration of the stakes and a repositioning of the actors. It is also held five years after the adoption by the United Nations General Assembly of the new sustainable development program 2015-2030, described as a Universal Agenda supposed to lead humanity's efforts towards an inclusive development model more respectful of the planet. In this context, where decision-making is more than ever a crucial issue, evaluation as a tool for assessing and producing supposedly enlightening knowledge is not immune to questions about its determinants and issues. Whether strongly institutionalized or in the process of being institutionalized, evaluation raises multiple questions, one of which is often underlying: evaluation for whose benefit and values? Dealing with such an issue requires an examination of the interests of each of the stakeholders involved in the evaluation, on what points are these interests convergent or divergent and in whose name are these interests borne? The FIFE2019 includes six sub-themes.
