Abstract: To date, the role of evaluation in parliaments has merely been analyzed. This surprises as members of parliament are stakeholders ‘par excellence’, who could have an interest in evaluation. But do they? Via a systematic analysis of written questions and interpellations in Germany and Flanders we investigate MPs attention for evaluations. The following aspects are analyzed, from a comparative perspective: the content of questions on evaluation, the political profile of the MPs posing the questions, the share of questions on evaluation, and the distribution of questions over political parties, policy areas and over time.
