This volume is devoted to the theme of social responsibility, social justice, and evaluation. It examines the evaluation-social justice interface and: -shares a variety of options and examples from different settings, -gives voice to populations whose voices are rarely heard, and -contributes to fulfilling the potential of the significant role evaluation can have in promoting social change. First discussing issues related to evaluation, social responsibility, social justice, and marginalized populations in general, it goes on to address issues concerning populations marginalized due to health, psychological, and physical difficulties; their cultural or ethnic/national status; or the specific geopolitical context of Israel. This is the 146th issue in the New Directions for Evaluation series from Jossey-Bass. It is an official publication of the American Evaluation Association.
