CECAN Webinar: The Pluralistic Evaluation Framework for Policy Evaluation

Richard Gunton


On 20th November, Richard Gunton presented a CECAN Webinar on the Pluralistic Evaluation Framework, a high-level approach to policy design, appraisal and evaluation based on a comprehensive theory of valuing. This framework for policy design and evaluation identifies 15 aspects spanning mathematical, ecological, cognitive, communal and ideological themes. Each of these aspects are assessed from the perspective of stakeholders,  systems affected and values. Coastal Realignment Policy and Defra’s 25-Year Plan were used to demonstrate the application of the framework.
