Nouvelle publication - Evaluation: Seeking Truth or Power

02/18/2011

Pearl Eliadis, Jan-Eric Furubo & Steve Jacob (eds), Evaluation: Seeking Truth or Power, New Brunswick, N.J.: Transaction Publishers, 2011, 240 pages. 

Ce livre étudie les relations de pouvoir qui peuvent surgir dans le cadre d’une démarche d’évaluation. Les auteurs cherchent à comprendre dans quelle mesure les évaluateurs recherchent le pouvoir pour leurs propres intérêts en s’appuyant sur le postulat que « si vous êtes en possession d’un attribut qui procure du pouvoir, pourquoi ne pas l’utiliser? ».
