CECAN Webinar: Demi-Regs and the Characteristics of Realist Evaluation

Justin Jagosh Webinar


On 5th December 2019, Justin Jagosh, Director of the Centre for Advancement in Realist Evaluation and Synthesis (CARES), hosted our CECAN Webinar: 'Demi-Regs and the Characteristics of Realist Evaluation'. 

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.

Attended by around 50 participants, the webinar examined the demi-reg concept 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.
