Abstract: The study analyses the institutionalization of program evaluations in the second pillar of the Common Agricultural Policy of the EU. This analysis is based on the Institutional Analysis and Development Frame developped by Elinor Ostrom. Main subjects of the study are the practise of evaluation and the utilization of evaluation results in political decision making within the multi-level governance system of the EU. The focus concentrates on the processes of evaluation and policy making on the regional level which are analysed in a case study of the German Bundesland Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.
