Event Details

In July 2021, IDEAS plans to present its latest volume on discussions held at and follow-up of what was discussed at its Global Assembly in Prague in October 2019: Transformational Evaluation for the Global Crises of Our Times. The COVID-19 pandemic has demonstrated the enormous challenges humanity is facing. It has been facilitated by other crises as climate change, biodiversity loss, economic exploitation, and increased inequity and inequality. The Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development and the Paris Agreement on Climate Change call for transformational change of our societies, our economies and our interaction with the environment. Evaluation is tasked to bring rigorous evidence to support transformation at all levels, from local to global. This book explores how the future of the evaluation profession can take shape in 18 chapters from authors from all over the world, from North and South, East and West, and from Indigenous and Decolonized voices to integrative perspectives for a truly sustainable future.

The book will be made available for download on the IDEAS website (ideas-global.org). The book is published as open access, which means that it can be freely downloaded, although its contents are copyright protected through the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License (CC BY NC-ND 4.0). IDEAS will also aim for a printed version of the book that can be ordered from Amazon, at a later stage. A virtual presentation of the new book will be done through a webinar hosted by IDEAS President, Ada Ocampo. The programme of the webinar will take shape in June and will be published in time, including possibilities to register for the webinar. Please visit our website for updates on the book!

Please Save the Date: July 22nd from 10.00 a.m. EDT (to be confirmed). We will keep you informed.

The book will be devoted to the first President of IDEAS, Dr. Sulley Gariba.
