Policy Analysis and Evaluation of programs
We have analyzed, evaluated and reported about policies related to Education, the Protection of Minors, Penal Law for Minors, and the National Strategic Plans for Infancy and Adolescence in Spain. The reports were submitted to policy makers, public authorities, judges and attorneys, and explained to minors, parents, teachers, public servants and members of institutional commissions and non-governmental organizations. We have proposed and designed programs to develop those policies, in order to achieve an understanding of the proceedings, effects and consequences of their implementation in the particular reality of the final beneficiaries, the minors.
Q: What are the factors that will lead someone to commission our work?
If you want a professional adviser, an institutional counselor who tells you what’s right for the people involved in the life of the policy, from how it is design (Policy Makers), to how this will affect the people subjected to the policy (the Citizens, also from 0 to 18/21 depending on the country, directly and indirectly), to the ones who will be in charge of how the policy will be implemented first, and if it is not respected, enforced (Public Servants, and Police Forces). Not if you want someone telling you what you want to hear, that will be for a political and more ideological profile. We believe in Institutions
Q: Why are we experts in this field?
These policies were contextualized all over the different stages we have according to the competencies of the governmental institutions, starting at the local level (Town Hall), to the Autonomous one (like Regional State), the National one in Spain, and the Supra-National one (Council of Europe). This experience reflects a rich and varied exposition to the different policy-making bodies and political interests included.
Q: What aspects of this are we most passionate about?
When you understand you are contributing to the common good, and you see the recognition of your effort in a change in policy that otherwise may not be there. When you get politicians to understand these changes need to be made on behalf of the citizens – not of their party or ideology – and they actually take into account them, although they don’t get to vote. When you see how effective can be the management and cross-functional coordination of different institutions and departments.
