Evaluating Business Respect for Human Rights: A Theory of Change Methodology to Develop Meaningful Indicators

This resource offers an introduction to a new methodology that Shift is currently testing, through Valuing Respect, to evaluate specific human rights interventions through a 'theory of change' lens. It provides a simple framework for companies and their stakeholders to develop and work with indicators in ways that support learning about what is working and why.

The theory of change approach provides a way for companies and their stakeholders to:

  • Develop indicators by identifying what needs to be measured, with reference to the outcome they want to achieve and the means by which they are trying to achieve it.

  • Address information needs by identifying the strengths and weaknesses of the information they already have access to, and any gaps in that information they may need to fill.

  • Improve decision-making and action by organizing and learning from information when they have collected it so as to allocate resources more effectively, improve interventions and achieve better outcomes for people.
