Political Culture as Context for Evaluation
Dahler-Larsen, Peter; Schwandt, Thomas A.
New Directions for Evaluation, n135 p75-87 Fall 2012
One way to understand the context of evaluation is in terms of its interaction with political culture. That culture includes citizens' views of the role of government and of evaluation and the history of the polity. This chapter illustrates the relationship of political culture and evaluation by means of two accounts of Danish political culture. The chapter also draws on this analysis to stimulate our thinking on the very idea of how context can be studied.
