Itad staff and associates will be at this year’s European Evaluation Society (EES) Conference in Maastricht, the Netherlands, presenting and taking part in workshops on a range of topics.
- Mel Punton will share reflections from our realist evaluation of BCURE in a session on ‘Realist Evaluation: Feasibility and Challenges’, and, in conjunction with Sarah Standley-Johansen, will discuss the pros and cons of using process tracing to explain how change happens in micro and macro-level processes.
- Sarah Standley-Johansen will share insights from two unique evaluation partnerships that were effective in supporting critical reflection and uptake of evaluation findings in climate change mitigation.
- Robbie Gregorowski will be looking at measuring, monitoring and evaluating resilience, with examples from our work on the BRACED programme.
- Itad associate Teresa Hanley will look at innovation in evaluation as she discusses our work on DFID UK’s Humanitarian Innovation and Evidence Programme (HIEP), where we are assessing the programme against a theory of change using a mixed-methods approach.
- Florian Schatz will be part of a panel session on Quantitative Comparative Analysis (QCA), where he’ll be looking at the benefits and challenges of applying QCA to the evaluation of empowerment and accountability development programmes.
- Itad associate Charles Michaelis will be discussing using a realist informed approach to evaluate the UK’s climate investments and inform future funding decisions.
We’ll be reflecting on our experiences in a series of blogs following the conference, so watch this space! If you’re at the conference, and are interested in our work, come along and say hello!
