In this exceptional LIEPP event, five leaders and internationally acclaimed scholars in evaluation will reflect on the future of the field. What new methods and approaches should be promoted? How is evaluation different from social science methods applied to social and economic issues – and should it be any different? What are the major institutional and political challenges to the development of evaluation and the promotion of its use in policymaking and within civil society? What should be the role of evaluation in democracy, and what practical tools can it rely on to fulfil this role? These are some of the questions which will be addressed in this roundtable.
