Summary and conclusions of IOB studies
Humanitarian assistance: more room for local actors
Our evaluation of six years of humanitarian policy shows that the Netherlands makes good choices. But, the role of local partners should be strengthened.
Tax system support to developing countries
IOB has evaluated the Dutch Government’s policy on strengthening developing countries’ tax systems for the period 2012-2020. The evaluation focused on the policies and activities leading up to and included in the Action Agenda on Policy Coherence for Development (PCD Agenda).
Evaluation of Counterterrorism Policy and Operations
In counterterrorism, security responses alone are insufficient. With this evaluation we aim to support future policy development, so that the Netherlands is more responsive to the changing threats of terrorism and violent extremism in a dynamic global context.
