Policy Evaluation in the EU

Activity: Organizing, contributing or attending an eventOrganizing or contributing to an eventAcademic


The aim of the workshop was to stimulate debate on approaches to policy evaluation in the EU by bring together EU policy researchers with scholars from the evaluation community. We sought to explore conceptual and methodological approaches to engaging in evaluation, and to take critical perspectives on current evaluation practices in the world of policy making and implementation.

The workshop was co-financed by the Centre for European Research in Maastricht (CERiM), FASoS Research Stimulation Fund (RSF), Stichting Universiteitsfond Limburg (SWOL) and the Law Faculty of Maastricht University.

We welcomed 46 participants: a mix of academics, both junior and senior, and various practitioners from the EU institutions and beyond, including from the European Parliament, European Commission's Joint Research Centre, the Regulatory Scrutiny Board and European Court of Auditors.
