Tuesday 14th March 2017, 16:00 – 17:00
Presenter: Justin Jagosh (PhD), University of Liverpool
Many approaches to addressing complexity in evaluation design are burgeoning. In part this is in response to the inadequacy of ‘complexity-thin’ approaches to supporting solutions to entrenched and evolving problems. A second factor is witnessing new complex problems emerging with radical changes in society and sectors. In this context, the realist paradigm serves as a guide to expand complexity-mindedness, which presumably translates into more useful and relevant knowledge products, and a community of realist evaluation specialists dedicated to developing a lens on ‘context-mechanism’ interactions. This webinar will introduce realist methodological principles, and explain how realism can increase our complexity-mindedness and capacity to gain causal insight.
Justin Jagosh, Ph.D is an independent research consultant and Director of the Centre for Advancement in Realist Evaluation and Synthesis (CARES) at the University of Liverpool. He runs regular training workshops on realist methodology in Liverpool and internationally and has hosted two successful international conferences on Realist Methodology in 2014 and 2016 www.liv.ac.uk/cares . He is a co-investigator on the NIHR-funded RAMESES II study to develop quality and reporting guidelines for realist evaluation and is currently an advisor on a number of projects using realist methodology. Previously he led an extensive realist synthesis to understand the benefits of Community-Based Participatory Research.
