Evaluations and audits

The Internal Oversight Service of UNESCO carried out an evaluation of the normative action of UNESCO’s Culture Sector during 2013. It focused in particular on evaluating the effectiveness of the Culture Sector’s normative action, putting the accent on its impact on legislation, policies and strategies of the Parties to UNESCO’s cultural conventions, and on the implementation of those conventions at the national level.

An audit of the working methods of the six culture conventions was also conducted in parallel.
