Summary
Now more than ever, policy evaluation is an important component of addressing the world's economic crisis. Before it can do so, the discipline must adapt to changing economic and political environments. The contributors address a basic question: What impact do crises have on evaluation and how can evaluation contribute in times of turbulence? Recognizing that evaluation is a discipline in disarray, Evaluation and Turbulent Times examines the ramifications and consequences. The papers in this volume focus on the impacts on evaluation of the shifting economic paradigms, on the World Bank's response to the global economic and social crises, the increasing sophistication of counter-terrorism and how evaluation might address these threats, and how evaluation might re-conceptualize its approaches to humanitarian crises. The contributors explore the role of evaluation in the search for solutions to global instability. They recognize, however, that in order to address unprecendented crises, evaluation itself needs to be evaluated and updated as part of the process of change and reform. This volume is the latest in Transaction's well-respected Comparative Policy Evaluation series
