About our scientific evaluation

As a non-prof­it, inde­pen­dent and non-par­ti­san think tank, d|part con­ducts sci­en­tif­ic mon­i­tor­ing and eval­u­a­tion of exter­nal projects that aim to fos­ter polit­i­cal par­tic­i­pa­tion. We apply a diverse set of meth­ods depend­ing on the design and the objec­tives of our project part­ners. The mon­i­tor­ing and eval­u­a­tion with qual­i­ta­tive or quan­ti­ta­tive meth­ods can take place before, dur­ing or after the project. There­by, we do not only rely on exist­ing data or doc­u­ments, but also devel­op new tools to col­lect data and infor­ma­tion togeth­er with our project part­ners that help to eval­u­ate the project.
