It is now widely acknowledged that programme evaluation benefits from the use of multiple methods, and mixed methods approaches are increasingly integrated in evaluation design. In this session, we will explore the use of mixed methods in programme evaluation, with a particular focus on social policy interventions. We will discuss conceptual foundations of mixed methods approaches, its use in programme evaluation and applications of mixed methods approaches in programme evaluation in low- and middle-income countries.
