CECAN Webinar - Realist Methodology for Complexity-Mindful Evaluations in the Food, Energy, Water and Climate Sectors

You are warmly invited to participate in a CECAN Webinar with Justin Jagosh (PhD) from the University of Liverpool.  Justin Jagosh

"Realist Methodology for Complexity-Mindful Evaluations in the Food, Energy, Water and Climate Sectors".

 14th March 2017 - 16.00 pm

Abstract:

Many approaches to addressing complexity in evaluation design are burgeoning. In part this is in response to the inadequacy of 'complexity-thin' approaches to supporting solutions to entrenched and evolving problems. A second factor is witnessing new complex problems emerging with radical changes in society and sectors. In this context, the realist paradigm serves as a guide to expand complexity-mindedness, which presumably translates into more useful and relevant knowledge products, and a community of realist evaluation specialists dedicated to developing a lens on 'context-mechanism' interactions. This webinar will introduce realist methodological principles, and explain how realism can increase our complexity-mindedness and capacity to gain causal insight.
