Its widespread popularity is based on the need to provide evidence of the effectiveness of policies and programmes. This book sees evaluation as an inherently political activity, as much about forms of governance as scientific practice. Using a wide range of examples from neighbourhood renewal, health and social care and other aspects of social policy, it relates practical issues in evaluation design to their political contexts.With contributions from leading academics and evaluation practitioners, the book considers key issues in the politics of evaluation including: governance and evaluation- participatory evaluation- partnerships and evaluation- and learning from evaluation.The politics of evaluation is important reading for academics, social researchers, policy makers, service providers and professionals across the public services as well as professional evaluators.

It will be a valuable resource for students on a range of social science and professional courses and those concerned with recent developments in social research methodology.
