Research area Evaluation

The efms conducts evaluations of social programmes in the field of integration of migrants on a regular basis. Evaluations concepts and their implementation differ in accordance with the respective research interests of the evaluation clients, the concrete design and the stage of development of the programmes under study. By the means of applying varying methods of social empirical research, evaluations allow for systematic assessments of the concepts, individual components, implementation and effectiveness of social intervention programmes. Evaluations at the efms are primarily conducted on behalf of foundations and public institutions.

The efms is an institutional member of the DeGEval - Gesellschaft für Evaluation (Evaluation Society). Set up in 1997, the DeGEval is an association of persons and institutions working in the field of evaluation. The DeGEVal aims at fostering professionalism of evaluators as well as the consolidation of different perspectives, experience and expectations regarding evaluation by promoting dialogue and information exchange between evaluators. As an institutional member of the DeGEval, the efms follows the DeGEval- Standards for Evaluation. Detailed information on the DeGEval can be found on this page:

Completed evaluations

Anti-prejudice training in Nuremberg

The city of Nuremberg has decided to develop a strategy against prejudice and wants to train so called ambassadors of tolerance. These would intervene in every day life situations against prejudice and discrimination. The city developed a training concept for the qualification of ambassadors of tolerance and tested the concept twice. The efms has been asked to evaluate the training and uses quantitative and qualitative methods to analyse the realisation and effects of the concept.

Muslimische Gemeinden als kommunale Akteure

The Goethe Institute commissioned the efms with the evaluation of the project "Muslim communities as local actors" which aims for an active inclusion of mosques and religious communities into their societal contexts. Next to German language training, the project offers workshops discussing communal topics, which the participants can actively shape, at five project sites.
