External Evaluation - 2022

This evaluation was commissioned by the Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs (FDFA) and looks at the relevance, effectiveness efficiency and sustainability of the Geneva Centre for Security Policy (GCSP), the Geneva International Centre for Humanitarian Demining (GICHD), and the Geneva Centre for Security Sector Governance (DCAF).


"DCAF is praised as the centre of excellence on SSG/R related matters, for its unique breadth and width of engagement. No other SSG/R organisation can be credited with DCAF’s complementary levels of intervention in the field and at policy level, its gender expertise, focus on knowledge, convening power and neutrality."
