This chapter examines the relationship between the politics of policy evaluation in the context of the New Labour government's urban policy. It outlines and assesses conventional models of urban-policy evaluation, and considers urban-policy evaluation under New Labour, focusing particularly on the extent to which evaluation approaches have embraced wider concerns to promote community leadership in urban policy. The chapter argues that the failure to engage communities in the evaluation process represents a significant Achilles' heel for contemporary urban policy and describes alternative evaluation philosophies that have emerged in the USA
