On May 20, 2014, Mike Beke presented at the Bulgarian Association for Policy Evaluation (BAPE) in Sofia the work of Blomeyer & Sanz. The round table debate titled ‘Policy Evaluation in Europe: Market and Trends’ was organised by Vitosha Research and the Center for the Study of Democracy and was attended by public and private sector stakeholders, academia and civil society. Apart from presenting our work, we expressed our views on European policy evaluation. We highlighted the importance of evaluation in guiding EU decision-makers to review past performance and prepare future initiatives. The efforts of BAPE to strengthen the evaluation community in Bulgaria and promote the tools to policy makers is a welcoming development.
