Abstract:

Latin America is one of the most culturally diverse regions: indigenous exclusion and discrimination have recently been made visible and public responses have emerged to address its effects, while indigenous worldviews inspire new development paradigms. Emerging counter-hegemonic worldviews, however, not necessarily tackle underlying power structures such as gender power relations. Despite the fact that ethical and efficiency arguments increasingly support the need to overcome gender inequalities, women’s rights and demands have stepped back in the public agenda. At the organizational level, gender gaps also remain and inhibit effective performance toward gender transformations. The above suggests the need for reflection and self-criticism about current evaluation models, and how they reproduce - by action or omission – existing structures and power relations. Based on experiences in multicultural contexts in Bolivia andGuatemala, this panel will offer reflections, strategies and lessons learned on how to deal with power issues in evaluation.
