USA, as well as categorically addressing countries which have remained neglected in the international debate, including: the Netherlands, Germany and Italy as continental European countries and Japan and Latin America. This focus brings to the fore the double function which evaluation has typically acquired in the context of public sector reforms: its twofold mission, is, on the one hand, to create transparency - promoting internal tools and procedures in public administration - and on the other, to produce external evaluative information analyses and research on the processes and results of public sector forums. So, evaluation is experiencing a new (third) wave, which is explicitly shown in this book.
