Evidence in Governance and Politics (EGAP) is a research, evaluation, and learning network with worldwide reach that promotes rigorous knowledge accumulation, innovation, and evidence-based policy in various governance domains, including accountability, political participation, mitigation of societal conflict, and reducing inequality. It does so by fostering academic-practitioner collaborations, developing tools and methods for analytical rigor, and training academics and practitioners alike, with an intensive focus in the Global South.
EGAP members are designing and implementing field experiments throughout the world. From impact evaluations of anti-poverty projects in Liberia, to get out the vote campaigns for national elections in the US, to anti-corruption 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, thematic and plenary meetings, academic practitioner events, and policy briefs.
