Monitoring, evaluation and learning in peacebuilding

The Platform commissioned a paper to critically appraise the state of the art of the use of social media and “citizen media” (especially mobile phone and internet technologies) and their reflection in recent monitoring and evaluation activities of peacebuilding efforts. The paper screens the existing evidence as to specific case application and lessons learned, and discusses opportunities and challenges of the use of social media and mobile phone technologies as a monitoring and evaluation tool for peacebuilders. The paper will become available in November 2012.
