This report presents the findings of a review of evaluation reports related to ILO interventions in the domain of social protection (social security) in the period 2012–2018. It aims to contribute to organizational learning, to provide guidance to ILO constituents on future work related to social protection (social security), and to strengthen the capacity of the Office to make evidence-based decisions from the findings generated during the analysis of the evaluation reports. Through the systematic analysis of results, lessons learned and good practices of selected evaluation reports, this synthesis review identifies what works, for whom, and why, in the context of ILO’s work on social protection (social security).
