Title: EU Enlargement and Power Asymmetries: Conditionality and the Commission's Role in Regionalisation in Central and Eastern
Europe
Abstract
Studies of EU conditionality assume a power asymmetry between the Commission and the CEECs over the adoption of the acquis, and at the macro level of democratisation and marketisation, rather than tracking clear causal relationships in policies. The article employs regional policy and regionalisation in the Central and Eastern European countries to challenge the 'conditionality model' and demonstrate its limitations. The research draws on interviews conducted with officials in the Commission and in Central and Eastern European countries delegations in Brussels to illustrate actor perceptions, and tracks policy differences within the Commission over time, to demonstrate and explain the weak impact of the Commission on regional policy and regionalisation in the Central and Eastern European countries. Inherent in the assumption that a power asymmetry characterises the enlargement process is the implication that it facilitates institutional convergence. The diverse pattern of regionalisation in the Central and Eastern European countries demonstrates the limitations to this notion of EU conditionality. Three key factors explain the divergence. Firstly, EU enlargement conditionality for the Central and Eastern European countries in the area of regional policy was implemented in a context of a spill-over of policy contestation within the Commission, where divisions over the regional policy reforms in 1988 and 1993 still resonated. Secondly, regional policy is a thin area of the acquis with sparse and ambiguous regulations. Thirdly, it is also an area under EU law where the national governments have a great deal of power to decide the institutional framework and means of implementation. Thus, whatever the competing policy preferences of the Commission, it lacked a repertoire of legal instruments to enforce a particular institutional design on the candidates, even if one existed. While the preferences of parts of the Commission for decentralisation informed the early stage of the enlargement process and strongly influ

Title: Strategic/Interim Evaluation of EU IPA Pre- Accession Assistance to Albania : Evaluation Report ; Project No.
2010/231987 - Version 2
Abstract
The objective of this project is to carry out an interim evaluation of assistance provided to Albania under the EU Instrument for Pre-Accession (IPA) which has been the main EU assistance programme in the country since 2007. The scope of this evaluation is confined to IPA Component I (Transition Assistance and Institution Building, IPA-TAIB) over the period 2007-2009. There are two specific objectives for the evaluation, these are: (i) To assess the intervention logic used, to date, in the planning, programming and management of IPA assistance in Albania and to assess the feasibility of adopting a sectoral approach to the planning of future interventions; (ii) To make an overall judgement on the performance of programming and implementation of IPA assistance in Albania.[Author vide copyright]

Abstract
The main objectives of the evaluation are: (i) to be accountable and to provide the relevant external co-operation services of the EC and the wider public with an overall independent assessment of the EC’s past and current co-operation relations with Nepal; and (ii) to identify key lessons in order to improve the current and future strategies and programmes of the EC.The evaluation covers aid delivery over the period 2002-2010 and mainly corresponds to the 2002-2006 strategic cycle (Country Strategy Paper) and the first National Indicative Plan of the 2007-2013 cycle. The evaluation is forward-looking and has paid specific attention to the following areas of co-operation: Support to Nepal’s poverty reduction strategy, particularly in (i) Education, (ii) Rural Development, (iii) Renewable Energy and the Environment, (iv) Peace Building and Consolidation of Democracy, and (v) Trade facilitation and integration in the international economy.[Author vide copyright]

Title: Capitalisation study of the EIDHR Programme in Angola : Capitalisation Study of EIDHR Projects programme in Angola ; The
European’s Union Lot No. 7 Programme
Abstract
This is the report of a Capitalization study carried out by a three person team of consultants on behalf of Governance~20 Consortium. Its objective is to provide the European Union Delegation in Angola with anoverview of past and ongoing EIDHR activities and to provide recommendations for the formulation of future strategy. The report is based on a 23 day in-country mission carried out from 16 February to 13 March 2010, together with an analysis of EU policy documents and project documents, and other relevant background material. The EIDHR has funded over 40 projects between 2003 and 2010, although the team was only provided with a sample of 28 projects and the statistical information here is based on this project sample. The team received a briefing and debriefing at the EU Delegation in Luanda at the start and end of the mission and was able to conduct a full analysis of the applications, narrative reports and logical framework analyses of the 28 projects selected. The team was unable to analyze evaluation tables showing the scores against which projects had been approved or not approved, for reasons of confidentiality. Most other information relied upon was gathered through interviews in the field and two workshops.[Author vide copyright]

Programme
Abstract
The European Commission (EC) contracted a consortium led by SOFRECO pursuant to Request for Offer N° 2009/226296, to conduct an evaluation and formulate recommendations on EIDHR support to Human Rights Defenders. The evaluation was carried out from January to March 2010, and covered the 11 projects that were funded under the EIDHR. The global objective of the evaluation was to provide the EC with an assessment of the quality of the actions financed under the EIDHR in support of HRDs from October 2008 to February 2010, with recommendations on how to improve this support in order to better respond to future needs for protection of HRDs. The specific objectives required the Expert to:- provide an evaluation of the first phase of implementation of the Programme;- make recommendations on how to improve EIDHR support to HRDs; and analyse the added value of the actions financed under the EIDHR in support of HRDs.The evaluation was a quantitative and qualitative analysis of the relevance, efficiency, effectiveness, impact and sustainability of the Programme. The Evaluation was structured and conducted around an inquiry framework comprised of a number of evaluation questions, to which the Expert sought relevant, accurate and concise responses.[Author vide copyright]
