Pierre-Marc Daigneault’s primary research interests are public policy analysis, program evaluation, social policy and methodology. His work in the field of program evaluation has touched upon the topics of evaluation quality, evaluation use and participatory evaluation. Daigneault’s postdoctoral research, supervised by Johnson-Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy professor and Canada Research Chair, Daniel Béland, focuses on provincial social assistance regimes. Specifically he is looking at ‘activation’ programs which aim at reconnecting welfare recipients with the labour market through regulations, incentives and human capital development. Daigneault is currently analyzing the Saskatchewan’s Building Independence: Investing in Families initiative in order to test whether this policy change represents a paradigm shift, in addition to exploring its main determinants. Although he is first and foremost a researcher, he has also worked as a consultant for the federal government.
