EGAP 2010 Call for Members [Application Deadline 3 March 2010]

The Experiments in Governance and Politics Network (EGAP) is pleased to announce a call for up to 12 new members.

The group: EGAP is a network of scholars and practitioners who are engaged in the implementation or analysis of field and lab based experimental research on questions related to governance and politics in international development. The network is housed at the Center for Democracy, Development, and the Rule of Law at Stanford, supported by the Hewlett foundations, and includes over thirty members from twenty five universities and international organizations.

Meetings and Activities: The network meets twice a year to discuss new and ongoing research in this field. The first meeting was held in Yale in April 2009 (http://webdev.yale.edu/egap/ ) and the second in Columbia in October 2009 (http://www.csds.columbia.edu/egap2009/ ). The next meeting will be held in Trinity College Dublin in May 2010. This call for members is timed to allow new members to participate in the Dublin meetings. Other activities include establishing a peer review service for new experimental designs and a set of standards and protocols for work in this field.

Application Process: The application process is open to researchers and practitioners who are engaged in the implementation, management, or analysis of experimental research on issues related to the interests of the network in the field of governance, politics, and international development. Applicants from researchers and evaluation officers from international organizations that are applying these methods to understand the effects of their interventions are especially encouraged.
