In the Education 2030 Framework for Action, Civil Society Organizations play essential roles. They need to be engaged and involved at all stages, from planning through to monitoring and evaluation, with their participation institutionalized and guaranteed.
CSOs can:·(…) document and share evidence from practice, from citizens’ assessments and from research to inform structured policy dialogue, holding governments accountable for delivery, tracking progress, undertaking evidence-based advocacy, scrutinizing spending and ensuring transparency in education governance and budgeting ( par. 80)
The purpose of the analysis of the national reports of the Second Phase of the World Programme was, in fact, to focus on the quality of the Reports and not on the content. More points are attributed for the submission of the Report and the accessibility to the information, the methodical answering and completeness of the answers.
Furthermore, the accent was put on verifiability and transparency of the examples of innovation. The reason behind this division is because, once more, theaim of this analysis is to evaluate States’ Reports based on completeness and transparency. Importance was given to verifiable examples and cases of good practice that could be found online, more than the actual application or results of the same.
