BeschreibungThis study traces the fascinating history of the Policy and Operations Evaluation Department (IOB) of the Directorate-General for Development Cooperation and, from 1996, of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. In 1977 Jan Pronk, the Minister for Development Cooperation, established an independent review unit that would provide him with timely, reliable information on the quality of Dutch development assistance projects, to counter both the often overly positive reports from his own staff, and the attacks on Dutch development assistance policy in parliament and the media. A quarter century later it is difficult to imagine foreign assistance without an evaluation department. Yet, the IOB's course has been far from smooth. The authors describe the challenges to its independence and tackle the question of the effects of the department's many reports.
