This article reflect on the evaluation of partnerships through an examination of the actual evaluation frameworks designed for a participatory setting. By concentrating particularly on the underlying paradigms of these frameworks, the article first shows how processs evaluation is problematic because its methodology is based on a limiting worldview, when compared to the worldviews expressed by participants in an actual partnership. Second, the article shows that empowerment evaluation is more suitable, because it is based on a paradigm that allows for a broader definition of partnerships.
