Evaluation of the Steering Committee on Anti-Discrimination, Diversity and Inclusion


Council of Europe

As part of its 2022-2023 work programme, the Directorate of Internal Oversight (DIO) included an evaluation of the intergovernmental work of the Council of Europe on anti-discrimination, diversity and inclusion: the Steering Committee on Anti-discrimination, Diversity and Inclusion (CDADI).

The evaluation aimed to assess to what extent CDADI has assisted Council of Europe member states in providing concerted and effective responses to common challenges to prevent and fight discrimination on the grounds covered by its mandate and in ensuring their implementation. It had two primary objectives: to learn from past CDADI work how and what CDADI can do better, and to learn from CDADI how intergovernmental work can best contribute to the Council of Europe’s mission. The evaluation covered the period from the creation of CDADI in 2019 to the end of 2023, while also examining the effectiveness and impact, over the last decade, of the sub-programme CDADI is part of.
