Evidence in Governance and Politics (EGAP) is a network for scholars and practitioners to actively engage in field experiments on the topics of governance, politics, and institutions. EGAP seeks to forge partnerships between researchers and practitioners committed to high quality research on the politics of global development, advancing evidence-based policy making, and improving the quality of experiments in the social sciences.
EGAP is funding leading edge experimental research projects on political accountability in developing countries. This grant round, which is administered through the CPD, is specifically designed to foster knowledge cumulation across studies. Successful applicants engage in closely related projects and adhere to a common set of research standards. The $1.8 million regranting pool supports 4-6 research projects that address a common theme and/or one or more “grouped” applications that link 2-3 individual projects across different research sites.
