Event Description

Complexity in Project Management and Evaluation

Dates: 16 - 17 September 2010

Location: Bonn

Venue: EADI Headquarters

In recent years there has been a much greater acceptance of the idea that social development does not proceed according to the logical framework: it is complex, messy and emergent. What methods might evaluators use to make greater sense of what has happened and what is happening in development programmes in a way that does greater justice to the complexity of development? How might we escape the simple dualism of asking whether the programme/project is successful or not? How might we take greater account of the role of the evaluator in what they are evaluating?


Dr. Chris Mowles has worked in international development for thirty years and currently combines consultancy practice with directing the innovative doctoral programme at the Complexity Research Group, University of Hertfordshire

Who should attend

Experienced evaluation practitioners and social researchers who are able to bring and speak about examples of their own practice to be discussed during the workshop.

Why you should attend

Participants in the workshop will have an opportunity to explore their current practice with others, and to be exposed to ideas derived from the complexity sciences. We will consider a range of methods, and in particular the importance of reflection and reflexivity in research. This is an experiential, participative workshop rather than skills training as such.
