Thesis title

'Determining the Impact of Landmine Clearance and Humanitarian Mine Action (HMA): Measuring effective interventions'


In contributing to the field of post conflict recovery, this research will look at methods of evaluating the impact of mine action and look towards creating more effective evaluation tools and frameworks. Specifically it will explore methods of measuring and identifying changes – positive and negative – that have occurred as a result of mine action interventions. It will go on to explore how evidence collected through evaluation can be used more effectively to influence decisions at a policy and programming level.
