About the workshop

The context for this workshop is the idea that different cultural values have an influence on the notion and practice of evaluation in diverse contexts.  In practice, the workshop aims to support evaluators who undertake evaluations in multi-cultural settings or in cultural contexts other than their own.  It provides a framework for understanding cultural value differences and an opportunity for discussion about the implications of this framework for evaluation practice.  The workshop proposes a set of approaches, skills and tools that may be useful.
