Role and engagement of local governments, international development or evaluation in relation to minorities or refugees. These were some of the topics of the Czech Evaluation Society and the Faculty of Tropical AgriSciences Conference with the subtitle Evaluation Dynamics from the Perspective of Different Players, which was held from June 14 to June 15 at the Czech University of Life Sciences Prague.

Among significant participants of the conference were Šimon Pánek (People in Need), Daniel Prokop (PAQ Research), Josef Šlerka (Charles University), Petra Chaloupková (Faculty of Tropical AgriSciences) and others.
Thanks to a wide range of topics and participation of remarkable guests, the event became an unique opportunity to share experiences and network different players in the area of evaluations.
