About Us

EGAP is a crofsdisciplinary network of researchers and practitioners which is united by a focus on experimental research and is dedicated to generating and disseminating rigorous evidence on topics of governance, politics, and institutions. We seek to forge partnerships between researchers and practitioners committed to understanding the politics of global development, advance evidence-based policymaking, and improve the quality of empirical research in the social sciences. EGAP members are designing and implementing field experiments throughout the world. From impact evaluations of antipoverty projects in developing countries, to get out the vote campaigns for national elections in the U.S., to anticorruption campaigns in Brazil, our work addresses today’s most important questions in the field of government and politics. Results from research are shared with policy makers and development agencies through regular policy fora, biannual meetings, and policy briefs.
