Cultural safety


A concept originating from nursing sciences and here applied in an innovative way to evaluation, cultural safety refers to an approach aimed at ensuring that the evaluation takes place in a "safe" manner for the stakeholders, and in particular for the minority communities targeted by the intervention under study, i.e. that the evaluation process avoids reproducing mechanisms of domination (aggression, denial of identity, etc.) linked to structural inequalities. To this end, various participatory techniques are used at all stages of the evaluation. Cultural safety is compatible with all types of methods. It contributes to making the evaluation more relevant and useful for stakeholders and will likely increase their self-determination.
