I'm just back from the latest in a series of workshops conducted by ISST as part of their "Engendering Policy Through Evaluation" project.
Much of the conversation at the workshop was around the notion of "feminist evaluation" and how it should be defined. Is "feminist evaluation" a distinct field of practice with its own precepts, principles, methods and tools? Or is it simply the application of fundamental feminist principles and tools of analysis into the practice of evaluation?
In this context, I am attaching a paper that reflects the second approach and might be of interest to some members of this community.
An intriguing dimension in this particular case is the fact that the programme being reviewed was developed by feminists and strongly embeds feminist principles in its framework, but is located within the government and struggles to deal with gendered institutional structures.
Comments are very welcome.
