Whilst the influences upon the making of social policy are widely recognised, the evaluation of social policy is under-discussed. Evaluation is an important part of the policy process and links to many of the topics in this book. This chapter discusses why there is a need for policy evaluation, methods and techniques of policy evaluation and monitoring, the problems of evaluation, and the commissioning, consumption and evaluation of evaluations. It also covers related issues and concepts such as policy transfer.
