The A. shows how processes of policy evaluation are alienating both for communities and for researchers alike. This is related to the socioinstitutional contexts within which evaluation takes place, and to the utilisation of evaluative models which conceive of the process as socially neutral. The A. suggests that a more fruitful way to produce sensitised evaluative methods is to change the social relations of research production. This involves the development of an emancipatory research paradigm
