Evaluation for an Equitable Society

Independence, Partnership, Participation


As in past years, the EES Conference will bring together evaluators from all over Europe and beyond to engage in reflection and debate about the role of evaluation in a changing world. Is the evaluation community equipped to take on the diverse, unprecedented and interconnected challenges of economic disparities, social unrest and governance dysfunctions? These are among the questions to be explored through keynote speeches, paper presentations, panel debates and posters at the Eleventh EES Biennial Conference to take place in Dublin (Ireland) on October 1-3, 2014 (with preconference workshops on September 29-30, 2014. Once again, this will be the evaluation event of the year. We look forward to welcoming you in Dublin.


EES Presidential Message

Dear colleagues and friends,

The forthcoming 11th Biennial Conference in Dublin will again provide your Society with an opportunity to forge closer relationships within the evaluation community and foster a wide ranging debate about the future of evaluation. In this context the annual meeting of the Network of Evaluation Societies in Europe will be held on Conference premises and it will explore ways of building closer cross border linkages among thematic working groups.

Beyond Europe, evaluation associations, networks and initiatives from all corners of the world will be present in Dublin. This will include the International Organization for Cooperation in Evaluation. Accordingly I expect a fulsome exchange of views about the outcomes expected from the 2015 Year of Evaluation.  The Conference will also host sessions focused on the role of parliamentarians in promoting a favourable enabling environment for evaluation in diverse country contexts. Finally our Conference will build bridges of transatlantic cooperation with American evaluators: the Faster Forward Fund (3F) sponsored by Michael Scriven will be launched in Dublin.

All in all, I am confident that the EES 11th Biennial Conference will bring evaluation commissioners, managers and practitioners from Europe and beyond much closer together and that it will mark a milestone on the road towards a more relevant and influential evaluation discipline that serves the public interest and contributes to a better world.

Claudine Voyadzis
President EES

How should the enabling environment for evaluation evolve to meet the challenges of social inclusion and environmental sustainability? Are contemporary evaluation models, practices and priorities fit for purpose?
Presidential Invitation
As the evaluation discipline endeavors to contribute to a more equitable society it will be called upon to assert its independence, reach out to partners and empower disadvantaged groups through participation
Message from Conference Coordinator
We warmly invite your involvement since the EES Conference has always worked as a platform for sharing knowledge, ideas and experience regarding the theory, practice, methods and practices of evaluation in Europe and beyond
