International Development Law Organization

IDLO 'Implementer Dialogues' in The Hague

Tuesday, October 8, 2019

Since 2014, IDLO and the Knowledge Platform Security & Rule of Law have collaborated to bring together implementing organizations, research institutes and representatives of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands to foster collaboration among actors working on rule of law and justice issues and create opportunities for joint initiatives and partnerships.

The exchanges, held in a flexible and informal format, originally covered research and programming in Indonesia and Mali.

Capitalizing on the success of these experiences, IDLO in partnership with the Knowledge Platform Security & Rule of Law is holding a series of 'Implementer Dialogues' looking at the experiences of implementing organizations with problem-driven iterative adaptation-based approaches to programming. The first of these dialogues is taking place in The Hague on October 8 and will bring together practitioners and policymakers to share and discuss good practices of using analytical tools for program adaptation.

Workshop: Applying tools for adaptive programming and development effectiveness

October 8, 2019 - The Hague

The nature of security and rule of law programming in fragile settings is changing in response to a variety of external and internal drivers, going beyond institutional capacity development to consider empowerment and ways to foster accountability and influence policies through engagement with new sets of actors. To bring about the desired changes, we need to better understand the problems at stake, the environments interventions are embedded in and the assumptions that underpin implementers’ decisions. This is where analytical tools for adaptive programming come into play. This workshop brings together practitioners and policymakers who will share and discuss good practices of using analytical tools for program adaptation.

The Netherlands Institute for Multiparty Democracy and CARE Netherlands are co-leads and key contributors to this workshop.
