Workshop Report: Framing Ethics in Impact Evaluation: Where Are We? Which Route Should We Take?

Authors: Barnett, C. & Munslow, T.

The workshop set out to explore the landscape of ethical practice as it currently exists, with a particular focus on the concerns of practitioners presently involved in implementing impact evaluations. The workshop focused especially on exploring the potential for a broader ethics model, where ethical values and principles inform every part of the evaluation process – both within the evaluation itself, as well as in relation to society.

Furthermore, consideration was given to how evaluation fits within the knowledge system that informs international development – and by implication, the extent to which evaluation could/should perform a role in better understanding and critiquing what constitutes ‘good’ (ethical) development.
