Visual impressions

June 29, 2010

The conference “Evaluation Revisited: improving the quality of evaluative practice by embracing complexity” focused on how evaluative practice can be improved, given the need to view much of development as a process of societal transformation and, therefore, complex. Current evaluation practice has not yet embraced the full implications of assessing ‘the complex’ and existing approaches often fall woefully short. During the conference, participants explored concrete evaluation practices that reconcile an understanding of complex societal change processes with quality standards, including rigorous, ethical concerns, appropriateness and feasibility. Here is a visual impression of the two days.
