Third-Party Funded Projects

Team members of CEWS successfully raised funding for and carried out 47 projects both, domestically and internationally.

Here you will find a list of ongoing projects at CEWS. The project archive lists projects that CEWS has already completed.

We compiled further information on international projects and evaluation studies.

Evaluations, which are by definition systematic valuations of programs and measures with objectified procedures and evidence focused criteria, are commonly utilized instruments for quality assurance in the field of gender equality policies.

Evaluations in the field of gender equality, like other charged political issues, are also set amidst the conflicts of various ambitions, interests and rivalries, quality assurance and the distribution of resources. These unique conditions are echoed and reflected by CEWS, both in the center's work in general, and in carrying out evaluation studies.
