The recent International Development Evaluation Association (IDEAS) Global Assembly culminated in the approval of a Prague Declaration that endorsed exploration of the feasibility of an International Evaluation Academy initiative. Such an Academy would complement the efforts of evaluation associations and act as a platform for innovation, creativity, and collaboration in pursuit of evaluation professionalism, influence and transformative impact. Set up as a non-profit voluntary association, the core assets of the Academy would be its Fellows who would be expected to commit to the Academy’s mission, values, and guiding principles. They would drive the choice of its programs and help deliver their activities. Since views about this proposal and its potential policy directions vary, your views about the justification of setting up an International Evaluation Academy and its key design parameters are sought.
