‘We’ is actually just a ‘me’, Patrick Regan.
After working in the charity and NGO sector for over 10 years, I set up the Rights Evaluation Studio – a consultancy which pairs a creative approach with rigorous application of research and evaluation standards to effectively evaluate complex projects and programmes.
I have worked in monitoring, evaluation and project management at organisations such as Prostate Cancer UK, the Media Legal Defence Initiative and the European Human Rights Advocacy Centre. My expertise in monitoring and evaluation, paired with my dedication to democracy, rule of law and international human rights has led me to take a strategic and creative approach to human rights evaluation– developing tools and systems which are realistic and help capture outcome and impact data for difficult to measure projects and programmes.
I strongly believe that principles of inclusion, voice, non-discrimination and a rights-based lens to evaluation can help generate useful, insightful and impactful evaluation data.
As well as a strong grounding in monitoring and evaluation, I have also successfully designed many projects and proposals, securing multiple triple-figure grants from trusts, foundations and government donors for international human rights projects.
I have a BA from Cardiff University in Spanish and Latin American Studies and am currently completing an MRes in Social Research, Law and Legal Studies from Birkbeck College, University of London.
