Outcome Assessment of DRL Media Freedom Programs in Europe

This U.S. Department of State funded project was an outcome-based evaluation of 8 Human Rights and Democracy Fund (HRDF) programs aimed at fostering freedom of the press in European countries known to have significant restrictions on media freedom. The programs were based in Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, and Russia. The evaluation focused on the program's effectiveness, the quality of the HRDF Media Freedom Programs, the impact of the HRDF media freedom programs, and the fit of the HRDF Media Freedom Programs relative to other U.S. Government funded programs.
