Evaluation and Society

The Evaluation and Society series presents authored manuscripts and edited volumes that advance our understanding of how evaluation theory and practice can contribute – meaningfully and consequentially -- to the quality and improvement of both developed and developing societies. Volumes in the series will explore new and refined evaluation approaches and methodologies, research on evaluation’s claims, and theoretical engagements with issues that bear on the productive and ethical use of evaluation in society. The series will particularly promote transdisciplinary, international, and progressive perspectives on evaluation, as well as applied social research.

The series is aimed at a broad readership of evaluation practitioners, scholars, and graduate students in evaluation and applied social research who are interested in critically examining the links between evaluation and society across a wide range of disciplines and interest areas, including education, public health, psychology, sociology, economic development, public policy, management, and public administration.
