Evaluation of the Danish Peace and Stabilisation Fund
The Danish Peace and Stabilisation Fund is a funding mechanism for stabilisation and conflict prevention. It is based on an integrated approach to stabilisation as laid out in the strategies “Peace and Stabilisation, Denmark’s Policy towards Fragile States” and “Denmark’s Integrated Stabilisation Engagement in Fragile and Conflict-affected Areas of the World”.
The purpose of the evaluation was to provide learning for the up-coming and expanded phase of the Fund from 2015-2017. The evaluation focused on the strategic levels and programme levels of the Fund and covered appropriations made under the Fund between 2010 and 2013.
It was found that The PSF has progressively supported enhanced interaction and trust among Danish officials, promoted the inclusion of a greater number of Danish actors in stabilisation activities, developed structures for cross government working such as the Inter-Ministerial Steering Committee and the Whole of Government Secretariat, and fostered common agreement around certain PSF priorities, approaches and activities in support of peace and stabilisation.
