Developing Assessment Methodology for the Effectiveness of Probation Services

Evolvexe Consulting has completed development of a special questionnaire which will enable state or non-state actors to assess the effectiveness of probation services in their respective countries. The questionnaire was primarily developed for civil society organizations in Armenia with funding provided by the Eurasia Partnership Foundation. The methodology contains a questionnaire evaluating a number of essential areas necessary for the effectiveness of probation services including infrastructure, human resources, caseload, staff evaluation, level of communication with probationers, data management and gender balance. Within the framework of the activity, Evolvexe Consulting co-founder and probation expert, Teimuraz Magradze led a workshop for Armenian civil society representatives on this matter.
