Research period: 3rd February 2020 to 31st January 2022
Community work, Participation and Empowerment (COPE) focuses on the problem of anti-Muslim hatred in Europe and aims at fostering a better understanding and improved dialogue between non-Muslim and Muslim communities in the project regions. The main objectives are increased social cohesion, prevention of and awareness about anti-Muslim hatred, empowerment of victims and groups at risk of anti-Muslim hatred and sustainable learnings about how to raise the level of social cohesion.
The aim of the impact analysis is to evaluate measurable impact as well as the perceptions of project beneficiaries of both process and outcome. The impact analysis will run concurrently with the project monitoring and evaluation done by the project team.
The University of applied science-FH Campus Wien will perform a formative and summative impact analysis with focus on the perceptions of the beneficiaries. The findings will be assessed at the end of the implementing cycle, with attention to relevance, coherence, efficiency, effectiveness, impact and sustainability (DAC Criteria).
Data will be collected by participatory fieldwork, supported by structured interviews, focus groups and semi-structured interviews. Additionally to the final impact analysis there will be an interim report after the first year of the project, so that findings can be implemented in the second half of the project.
