TBG undertook the end-of-programme evaluation of the Support to the realization of human rights and access to justice in Kenya from 2012-2015. The evaluation aimed to assess achievements made in influencing good governance, access to justice, and human rights in Kenya by three commissions including The Kenya National Commission on Human Rights (KNCHR), The National Gender and Equality Commission (NGEC), and The Commission on Administrative Justice (CAJ). During the evaluation, TBG analyzed the relevance, effectiveness, efficiency, impact, and sustainability of the seven results outlined for the programme. The results included: (i) Article 59 Commissions’ capacity strengthened in order to implement their mandates more effectively; (ii) the capacity of government staff strengthened to apply a human rights-based approach (HRBA) and related principles; (iii) the capacity of state actors to understand government obligation with regards to economic, social, and cultural rights enhanced; (iv) strengthened framework on access to justice at national and county level applying HRBA approach; (v) the transitional justice processes strengthened to effectively redress historical injustices; (vi) the capacity of state and non-state actors enhanced to deliver on their human rights obligations; and, (vii) the electoral processes monitored with respect to abuse of state resources, engagement and participation of women, youth and other marginalized communities. The evaluation aimed to identify achievements made, identify areas for improvement, and provide recommendations for the next phase of human rights and access to justice programming in Kenya.
