Abstract: Program evaluation occurs in a context where ethical dilemmas are frequent and hardly avoidable. Evaluators must daily deal with different ethical tensions that may influence the quality of their work. By developing an analytical model allowing us to categorize evaluators according to whether they are the corporatist or the altruist type, we proposed to verify if all evaluators demonstrate the same sensitivity when faced with ethical dilemmas. Taking inspiration from a proven research methodology by Morris and Jacobs, we met, through interviews, Canadian evaluators of public policies. We have concluded that the altruist type show a high ethical sensitivity, while the corporatist type show a more moderate ethical sensitivity. We also observed that other factors such as evaluation environment(internal or external) and experience can influence ethical sensitivity.
