This is a recording of the M&E Thursday Talk from Thursday, November 30th as Stine Chen, Nele Blommestein, and Lisette Gast led a discussion on “Visualizing stories: How Sprockler was used for a baseline measurement in Pakistan.”
In early 2017 Oxfam Novib, Saferworld and partners used Sprockler to conduct a baseline measurement for their project on access to fair, legitimate and effective Justice in Pakistan. Sprockler is both a methodology and an online tool that is especially designed to monitor projects in complex contexts. With a need for insights into how citizens in three provinces were seeking justice. citizens were asked the central question: “Could you share a story about a time when you, or someone you know, tried to seek justice to settle a case or dispute – or a time when you wanted to seek justice, but didn’t try?” During this webinar, the Sprockler interactive report that visualises those stories was presented.
