With the international community providing billions of dollars each year to promote democratic institutions/cultures in transitional and developing countries, rigorous evaluations have become essential for determining the effectiveness, as well as the future direction, of democracy assistance programs. Krishna Kumar provides a unique, practical guide to the on-the-ground tasks of evaluating and monitoring these programs, from planning to implementation to preparing and presenting evaluation reports. Kumar assesses virtually all of the evaluation and monitoring approaches currently in play, pointing out the strengths and weaknesses of each and suggesting alternative approaches where appropriate. Packed with valuable insights, his book will serve as an essential tool for those who are involved in democracy assistance programming and evaluation, fund it, or simply want to learn more about it.

About the Author:

Krishna Kumar is senior evaluation adviser in the Office of Foreign Assistance Resources, US Department of State. His recent publications include Promoting Independent Media: Strategies for Democracy Assistance and the coedited Promoting Democracy in Postconflict Societies.

Review:

"A valuable guideline for practitioners who need to evaluate democracy assistance and for scholars who need to study the details of democracy promotion.... Kumar skillfully constructs a toolbox for democracy promotion evaluators. (Nelli Babayan, Democratization)

[Kumar] provides us with a very thorough and easily understood handbook on the evaluation of democracy programs, which is richly illustrated with case studies that are presented with sufficient detail to help readers understand the specific political, economic and often emergency contexts within which each evaluation was designed and implemented. In fact the very thorough way in which each stage of the evaluation process is discussed also makes this a very useful introductory text for evaluators working in other sectors. (Michael Bamberger, American Journal of Evaluation)

Timely and important.... Dr. Kumar's clear and thoughtful explanations of how monitoring and evaluation practices can be applied to the democracy and governance sector are an invaluable resource. (Lorne W. Craner, International Republican Institute)
