In mapping the range of scientific allegiances to social justice, I draw on the evaluation field to distinguish nonpartisan, multipartisan, reformist, and critical theory positions. I then go on to ask how positions on social justice are related to methodological choices, consider ways in which we should think of citizens and service users as having scientific knowledge about social work that shapes the justice agenda, and conclude the chapter with an exploration of arguments about insider and outsider status, standpoint theory, and feminist social work science.

Keywords:   Justice, Evaluation, Reformist, Critical science, Citizens, Service users, Insiders, Feminist science, Standpoint theory
