Details of these studies are available in the Annual Evaluation Reviews for the corresponding years 1 and the IAs are available at the IA website 2. The overview tables use the following classifications and symbols: Classification: The studies are listed in order of Policy Area, ABB activity 3 (heading and number) and the year in which the study was finalised, thereby indicating the analyses available for each activity. Some evaluations concern more than one ABB activity within a given Policy Area. If they concern two ABB activities, they are listed under both. If they cover more than two ABB activities, they are listed as cross-cutting for the Policy Area. Legend: Evaluations (interim and ex post) are indicated with normal script. Prospective studies such as IA and ex ante evaluations are indicated with italic script. Evaluation-related studies are marked with an asterisk (*). Activities without budget lines are indicated as AWBL, cf. footnote The ABB (Activity Based Budgeting) classification is that used in the 2009-budget, cf. Activities without budget lines (AWBL) are included if they concern operational activities or if they have been subject to evaluation or IA. The ABB activities on administration and policy coordination are only included if they have been subject to an evaluation or IA. Compared to last year, one ABB activity in the policy area External Relations has been renamed, cf. footnote 4 on page
