As in past years, the EES Conference will bring together evaluators from all over Europe and beyond to engage in reflection and debate about the role of evaluation in a changing world. Is the evaluation community equipped to take on the diverse, unprecedented and interconnected challenges of economic disparities, social unrest and governance dysfunctions? These are among the questions to be explored through keynote speeches, paper presentations, panel debates and posters at the Eleventh EES Biennial Conference to take place in Dublin (Ireland) on October 1-3, 2014 (with preconference workshops on September 29-30, 2014. Once again, this will be the evaluation event of the year. We look forward to welcoming you in Dublin.
