Working group in the DeGEval - Evaluation Society

The Administration Working Group has been in existence since the DeGEval annual conference in Berlin in 2000. Today, the working group has over 200 members and interested parties from a wide range of institutional backgrounds (academic research, consultancy institutes and practitioners from local authorities, federal states, the federal government and the EU) and specialist areas. What they have in common is an interest in questions of evaluation in connection with public administration and politics. We count all those who have indicated or are indicating their interest in participating in the Administration Working Group as members.

Since the working group meeting at the DeGEval annual conference in Linz on September 15, 2022, the team of speakers has consisted of Prof. Dr. Markus Seyfried (University of Applied Sciences for Police and Public Administration NRW), Prof. Dr. Gottfried Konzendorf (Federal Chancellery and German University of Administrative Sciences), Axel Piesker (German Research Institute for Public Administration) and Dr. Renate Reiter (FernUniversitΓ€t in Hagen and Centre for Evaluation and Policy Advice [ZEP]). During the working group meeting, Dr. Renate Reiter was newly elected to the team of speakers.
