Summary/Abstract: The article analyses the alternative approaches and related indicators, that can be used for social policy evaluation. The thesis is that values and ideas for needed development of community are concealed behind the choice of method and indicators for evaluation. Therefore the evaluation purpose can be easily changed and instead of being used for policy process improvement it could serve the political completion. In this case the policy evaluation loses its rational character. If there is a politics of evaluation, we need a policy of evaluation.
