In this paper, we offer an account of the meta-evaluation of a special administrative arrangement, the Dutch Closed Criminal Cases Evaluation Commission (Dutch acronym: CEAS). The CEAS is a provisional evaluation institution meant to investigate alleged missteps during criminal investigation and prosecution, which may have caused the conviction of an innocent person

We developed a tailor-made approach to reconstruct the commission's 'evaluation logic'; this is illustrated by reconstructing the activities of a selection committee and two investigative subcommittees of the CEAS. Subsequently, we applied a set of criteria to assess among others the timeliness, independence and transparency of the commission's work. We offer a number of conclusions and recommendations, particularly with regard to future (meta-)evaluation research.
