Steve Jacob (Université Laval, Canada)

Steve Jacob est professeur titulaire et directeur du Centre d’analyse des politiques publiques (CAPP) et du laboratoire de recherche sur la performance et l’évaluation de l’action publique (PerfEval). Il enseigne la science politique à l’Université Laval à Québec et dans plusieurs universités étrangères. Il mène des recherches sur les processus de modernisation de l’administration, l’éthique publique et les dispositifs d’évaluation et de gestion de la performance. 

 

Résumé :

Les témoignages des évaluateurs font régulièrement état de problèmes éthiques qui surgissent au cours d’un mandat d’évaluation et qui peuvent en compromettre l’issue. S’interroger sur l’éthique, c’est réfléchir aux limites de l’évaluation en tant que profession émergente. Concrètement, cela soulève la question de la « bonne conduite » à adopter et de l’intégrité qui peuvent être tributaires de la personnalité de l’évaluateur, de la nature des organisations ou du contexte particulier dans lequel se déroule l’évaluation.
