The evaluators have conducted an extensive, independent evaluation of the GPPS II programme. National pilot projects were visited in all the countries where GPPS is operating, intensive briefings were held with the key program staff both in New York headquarters and Brussels, as well as in the field, and the project documentation and written products were reviewed. Despite its limited budget (€6,000,000 over four years), the programme has developed and implemented innovative parliamentary development projects at the national, regional, and global levels. These outcomes compare favourably with other democratic development programs disposing of larger operational budgets. The keys to success are innovative ideas, dedicated staff, and the supportive collaboration of the major programme donor. Like other multi-component programmes, some elements stand out as exceptional successes, while others have faced challenges. We have provided our honest assessment of both strengths and weaknesses. Overall, we judge GPPS II as a considerable success that warrants continuation in a new phase. The Executive Summary contains a very brief digest of the overall evaluation. Each chapter of this document, covering the national, regional, and global activities, contains a more detailed summary of that aspect of the evaluation.
