Canadian Policies and ProgramsBook - 1993
There have been substantial developments in the field of program evaluation in Canada in recent years, specifically in the evaluation of justice programs. However, there is very little published material available on program evaluations of justice programs in Canada. Evaluating Justice: Canadian Policies and Programs is intended to address this need and to serve as a supplementary text and reader that provides Canadian materials and cases illustrating basic principles for organizing and doing program evaluation research. Practitioners in private practice and those employed in government as evaluators will find this book a useful source of information about the evaluation of justice programs in this country. The book contains sections on the police, courts and corrections. Each chapter consists of case studies dealing with different substantive matters and justice programs undertaken in different parts of the country. Each chapter presents basic information about the substantive program as well as the approach used in its formal evaluation. Each chapter is written by a Canadian scholar or practitioner.
