Abstract:

The development of European Community administrative authority has greatly influenced the development
of an evaluation culture among the southern and central member states of the European Union.
The present case study from Spain provides an example of this diffusion through the use of an empowerment
evaluation approach  to build evaluation capacity within the context of rural development. The study focuses
on the evaluation process over a 10-year period of three local development programs  run by three local
partnerships created in the rural areas of the Madrid region through the European LEADER initiative.
Critical components of empowerment evaluation are discussed, as well as the impact, limitations, difficulties,
and applicability of the approach to rural development in the European Union. Conclusions are presented
concerning evaluation capacity building and the development of an evaluation culture.
