Website GlobalSpotlight Spotlight Initiative

Global initiative to end violence against women and girls

Launched in 2017 with a seed investment by the European Union, the Spotlight Initiative is a multi-year, global partnership between the European Union and the United Nations to end violence against women and girls globally by 2030. With a focus on specific forms of violence, the Spotlight Initiative aims to promote a comprehensive, rights-based approach to drive transformative change across 6 interconnected outcome areas (or pillars). The Spotlight Initiative is providing targeted support and investment across five regions (Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, Latin America, and the Pacific) through country and regional programmes.

Several years into its implementation, the Spotlight Initiative has the opportunity to contribute to existing evidence and capture important learning on ending violence against women and girls.

To capture this, and assess the impact of the Initiative’s contributions, we are looking to partner with an experienced women’s rights and/or feminist research/evaluation entity to conduct a thematic evaluation of Spotlight Initiative’s contribution to three interconnected areas: feminist movement building, meaningful engagement with civil society, and the integration of the rights-based principle of “leaving no one behind”. The thematic assessment will also consider how Spotlight programmes have adapted to the COVID-19 context, surfacing important learning on implementing programming in the context of a global health pandemic.

Coalitions, consortiums, organizations, and others, with extensive expertise in conducting feminist research, leading gender and human rights responsive evaluations, and assessing comprehensive programming on ending violence against women and girls through a critical, intersectional lens are encouraged to apply.

Additional information on the evaluation, and how to apply, can be found here in the public request for proposals.
