Thursday 5th December 2019, 16:00 – 17:00 GMT
Presenter: Justin Jagosh, Director for the Centre for Advancement in Realist Evaluation and Synthesis (CARES)
A demi-regularity, also known as a demi-reg, is a semi-predictable outcome pattern. The demi-reg concept has relevance to fundamental principles in realist evaluation (Pawson and Tilley, 1997) including the context-mechanism-outcome (CMO) configuration and middle-range theorizing. In this webinar, the demi-reg concept will be examined using source material and illustrated using examples. Although the use of the concept is not a pre-requisite for conducting a realist evaluation, it has significant value for understanding and engaging with the analytical characteristics of a realist methodological process.
- To understand the origins and definition of the demi-regularity concept;
- To understand how the concept of demi-regularity relates to realist evaluation;
- To illustrate the use of demi-regularity in realist analysis.
