Session Abstract (150 words): 

How can we tackle the barriers to participation and inclusion in evaluation? In December 2016, DME for Peace hosted the Breaking Barriers Conference and Workshop in Cape Town. Through the use of human centered design processes, DME for Peace brought together a diverse group of local practitioners, global experts, funders, policy makers, multi-sectoral programmers, academics, and evaluators to confront the barriers to participation and inclusion in peacebuilding evaluation. Through a facilitated series of interactive, design thinking exercises that utilized different approaches to enhance genuine participation in the design, analysis, and solution-generation stages of the workshop, Breaking Barriers developed four human-centered, locally-led, innovative solutions to improving participation and inclusion of evaluation practice in complex environments. This session will dive into the four concepts developed in Cape Town and engage the AEA audience in a discussion around participation and inclusion in evaluation.
