PRI, together with it’s consortium partners, the Hungarian Helsinki Committee and the Institute of Legal Research of the Faculty of Law of the University of Coimbra, is seeking an evaluator(s) to undertake a comprehensive evaluation of the EU-funded project Promoting non-discriminatory alternatives to imprisonment across Europe, using the OECD DAC evaluation criteria (relevance, efficiency, effectiveness, impact and sustainability), assessing the project results and learning as well as barriers encountered during implementation and any made mid-term adjustments.

Coordinated by PRI, the project examines the current use of non-custodial sentencing measures across European Union member states and includes capacity building and advocacy activities, particularly in the projects’ two focus countries, Hungary and Portugal, with a focus on the impacts of the application and implementation of non-custodial sanctions on minority groups and those left uniquely vulnerable due to specific personal or background characteristics or circumstances.

Drawing on data collected as part of project monitoring as well as additional information collected through direct and secondary sources and feedback from project stakeholders, the evaluator(s) will identify key lessons and recommendations for future programmes. The evaluation of project activities should assess their overall impact in view of their stated goals, looking at the relevance of their design, efficiency and effectiveness of implementation, as well as sustainability of impact in the focus countries and across Europe.
