About Us

Vision & Mission

Our purpose is to provide high-quality and valuable research and evaluation services to support our partners in achieving a positive impact through their work. Human-rights inspired values are at the core of what we do, whether we are working with civil society, regional, or international organisations. We believe that all of our partners have a key role in promoting these values through their respective missions. Therefore, through our high standards of academic rigour applied to the research and evaluation of policies, programmes and projects, we are able to ensure that our clients can carry out work promoting human rights, the rule of law, and democracy in beneficiary communities within Europe and in other regions around the world. As trusted advisors with a strong commitment to independence and integrity, we increase our partners’ accountability and understanding in the implementation of their work.

Student placement schemes

We believe in providing opportunities for the next generation of researchers and evaluators. Our internship programme allows talented students with an interest in international affairs to develop skills that will serve them in careers in research, academia, and international organisations. Past interns now work at prestigious organisations, such as the French Senate, Banco de España, Oxford Economics, and other international consultancy firms and Civil Society Organisations in Austria, France, United Kingdom or Spain.

As part of our team, our interns take an active role in our work. They participate in our research and evaluation assignments by supporting data collection and analysis and collaborating with our partners and clients.

Corporate social responsibility
