Communication of results and utilization in participatory program evaluation

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This paper explores the linkages between utilization and stakeholder participation in the evaluation process, specifically in the communication of results phase of evaluation. It is argued that key elements of a participatory evaluation process can be linked to meaningful and multiple forms of results utilization through cognitive and political uses of the evaluation process. Data from two small-scale participatory evaluations are used to support this argument.
