Ever found yourself 6 months into the evaluation process, with an evaluation commissioner stating, “Find us evidence for us to shut this project down” and yourself as the evaluator wondering … “what just happened”?…..
In recent times, the word ‘capture’ has become synonymous with the South African political economy. For the purposes of this article, I have borrowed the term ‘capture’ to illustrate how South African politicians and or any other commissioners of evaluation capture evaluations. The theoretical explanation of ‘capture’ was defined by Sutch (2015:2) stated as “the actions of individuals or groups both in the public and private sectors, influencing the formation of laws, regulations, decrees and other government policies to their own personal advantage”.
Africa Centre for Evidence would like to extend an invitation to the official launch of the Centre.
Date: 09 October 2017
Time : 16h00 – 18h00
Venue: School of Tourism and Hospitality; University of Johannesburg; Bunting Road Campus
