The global scene for evaluation has changed in last decade, and certainly in Europe with the emergence of strong demands for evaluations from the European Union and where evaluation is now an institutional part of public sector governance. This volume examines twenty-one countries and three international organizations - the European Union, the World Bank, and Development Assistance Evaluation-that heavily influence the global direction of evaluation. It is a historical overview of supply and demand in relation to evaluation; shifts in institutional settings, professionalism in the field, descriptions of evaluation in the Executive Ministerial and Legislative Parliamentary branches of government, and observations on where the national systems are at present and where they may be going.
