CECAN Webinar  - The Pluralistic Evaluation Framework for Policy Evaluation

20th November 13:00 - 14:00 GMT

Presenter: Richard Gunton

You are warmly invited to join us for the following CECAN Webinar...

 

Webinar Overview:

In a democratic system, how can we show that a policy has improved a complex situation in a way that represents good use of public funds? “Improve” and “good” are very general words, calling for pluralistic evaluation. That is, to do justice to the complexity of a situation, evaluations should account for (a) the different kinds of systems that a policy may impact simultaneously, (b) the values of different stakeholders, and (c) the different ways in which any stakeholder may value changes to a situation. A comprehensive evaluation ought to account for the wide range of interests that may be held by diverse stakeholders concerning the multiple components of a situation of interest.

CECAN Webinar  - Handling subjective views and bringing rigour to contribution analysis: Bayesian Belief Networks and evaluating likelihoods in action

16th October 13:00 - 14:00 BST

You are warmly invited to join us for the following CECAN Webinar...

Webinar Overview:

Simon Henderson and Stuart Astill will give a talk showing how influence maps analysed using Bayesian Belief Networks can be used to add rigour to contribution analysis (and other evaluative judgements) in situations where subjective views rather than objective outcome data is the main source of knowledge. They will look at how a well-planned approach can structure and aggregate subjective views using influence mapping, Bayesian Belief Networks (BBNs) and conceptions around evaluating likelihoods.
