  1. Theory based evaluation for complex systems and Realist qualitative analysis

    21st July, 2015 to 23rd July, 2015

    Many policies and programs are implemented in large systems, or expect to make changes at multiple levels of a system. Many approaches to program theory either assume that the program itself is simple, or ignore the implications of context for whether and how programs work. The first day of this program will compare various approaches to 'systems', 'complexity' and 'context', including introducing realist perspectives. Participants will explore the implications for program design and for commissioning and conducting evaluations, and in particular, the many uses of theory for dealing with complexity.
