Mapping of evaluation capacities in the field of extremism prevention as well as the interfaces to violence prevention and civic education | extended data basis from 2023 onwards
Based on the results of the first PrEval project, the PrEval Platform provides a systematic overview of evaluation capacities in the field of extremism prevention as well as at the interfaces to violence prevention and civic education in Germany. It currently contains the results of a nationwide telephone survey of evaluation actors from 2020/2021
Expansion from 2023
In the course of the “PrEval – Zukunftswerkstätten” project, the platform will be updated and expanded: A nationwide survey in the evaluation practice of extremism prevention, democracy promotion and civic education will take place for this purpose until July 2023. Through further regular surveys, the platform is to be successively expanded into a monitoring tool. Furthermore, additional analysis options are to be made available in order to be able to determine whether the diverse expectations of quality management in general and evaluation practice in particular can be met with the current evaluation capacities.
The platform has also been available in English since spring 2023.
Capabilities of the platform
The platform is composed of two main views that cover different levels of functionality: the capacity overview and the analysis overview.
In the capacity overview, institutions active in third-party or self-evaluation can be searched and filtered on an interactive map. In addition to a quick overview of the evaluation landscape, it is also easy to find network partners throughout Germany.
The analysis overview also offers a variety of other analysis and visualization options for both external and self-evaluators. This makes it possible, for example, to understand which approaches and methods are used in the evaluation and also to analyze the various evaluation objects (projects, measures or programs) in more detail.
The Institute for Interdisciplinary Research on Conflict and Violence at Bielefeld University (IKG) is responsible for the PrEval platform. For questions and comments, please feel free to contact the PrEval team at the IKG directly.
