Abstract

In a previous issue of this journal (Vol. 3, no. 2) David Farrington introduced-"in the interests of stimulating discussions"-an outline research design for Evaluating a Community Crime Prevention Program. This article takes up the challenge, offers a critique of his "quasi-experimental" approach and insists that such programs are better evaluated using designs based on "scientific realist" principles. The paper also draws attention to benefits of a "theories of change" approach to evaluation, pioneered in the US in conjunction with such comprehensive community initiatives. © 1998 SAGE Publications.
