Evaluations are significantly influenced by the cultures of participants, as well as the evaluator. This report provides insights to help evaluators better understand the influence of different cultures, assess their own work and how they work with others, with the goal of creating more useful evaluations for all stakeholders.
This guide offers practical examples of how cross-cultural issues surface in evaluation, and how to address the issues. It is a companion to an earlier report, The Importance of Culture in Evaluation.
