HEIER Director, Dr Tracey Wond has published a book chapter with international partners across Europe
The book, The Institutionalisation of Evaluation explores evaluation practice across 16 European countries, exploring it's acceptance in political, social, educational and other realms of society.
"The role of evaluation in UK Society has fluctuated somewhat as regional development agency structures have altered and political tides have turned. More participatory processes have led to a more development turn in evaluation. We're seeing a resurgence in evaluation, and terms such as impact are becoming commonplace in publicly funded programs, universities as well as being firmly embedded in government departments. The UK's departure from the EU at the time of writing made this chapter particularly interesting but momentus." (Dr Tracey Wond
Dr Wond authored the United Kingdom chapter.
