2015 (English)In: American Evaluation Association conference, Chicago, Nov 9-14, 2015, 2015Conference paper, Published paper (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

The variety of how evaluations are put to use has attracted the interest of many scholars. Suggestions are made that usage might be instrumental, for enlightenment, legitimation or something else. In this paper-session the impact of a specific evaluation applying program-theory will be in focus. The evaluation concerned a statutory Swedish program. Aimed at reducing homelessness, an investment of 5 million Euro engaged 23 innovative projects nationwide. Homelessness is a wicked social problem exhibiting great resistance to current solutions while engaging numerous actors, organizations and agencies simultaneously and at various levels within public and civil domains. How does this affect the evaluation of programs and projects aspiring to combat homelessness? And in what way(s) can we speak about evaluation utilization? Findings show that impact takes place in an iterative process where serendipities play an important role.
