Employing both qualitative and quantitative methodologies, empowerment evaluation is the use of evaluation concepts, techniques, and findings to foster improvement and self-determination. David M Fetterman explores its background and theory and goes on to present the three steps of empowerment evaluation: establishing a mission statement about a programme; taking stock; and charting a course for the future, while using case studies to highlight these steps in practice.
