I’ve just had an article published in the journal PR Review. It’s the first article of my ongoing PhD on communication evaluation in intergovernmental organizations and NGOs. Below is the Abstract or if you are really keen you can download the full article below.


Evaluation of international and non-governmental organizations’ communication activities: A 15 year systematic review

The purpose of this paper is to understand how intergovernmental organizations and international non-governmental organizations have evaluated their communication activities and adhered to principles of evaluation methodology from 1995–2010 based on a systematic review of available evaluation reports (N = 46) and guidelines (N = 9). Most evaluations were compliant with principle 1 (defining communication objectives), principle 2 (combining evaluation methods), principle 4 (focusing on outcomes) and principle 5 (evaluating for continued improvement). Compliance was least with principle 3 (using a rigorous design) and principle 6 (linking to organizational goals). Evaluation was found not to be integrated, adopted widely or rigorously in these organizations.
