|CONSTRUCTING A PARTICIPATORY APPROACH FOR THE EVALUATION OF SOCIAL POLICIES AND PROGRAMES
|SILVA, Maria Ozanira da Silva e
|This article discusses the evaluation of social policies and programs in the perspective of Evaluation Research. It tries to develop a methodology that has a participatory content. Thus, the evaluation of social policies and programs is considered in its full potential for the construction of knowledge. It is seen as a development of the processes of public policies that involves different subjects, who have different interests and rationalities. In the construction of a concept of a Participatory Evaluation Research, the article takes into account its technical, political and academic functions. Therefore, it reaffirms two dimensions of Evaluation Research: a technical and a political one. The commitment of the evaluator-researcher to the critique of reality in the search for its transformation is the reference for the development of a participatory approach in Evaluation Research. So, the paper presents an introduction that describes the origins of what is considered as a participatory approach for evaluation of social policies and programs, followed by some chapters that develop reflections about evaluation as a part of the process of public policies; presents a concept of evaluation research in order to consider, in the following chapters, the specificities in the construction of a participatory concept and approach in evaluation research
