EGAP is a cross-disciplinary 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 policy making, and improve the quality of empirical research in the social sciences.

We are currently accepting submissions related to new Metaketa rounds. For more information on the request for proposals related to natural resource governance, or to submit an expression of interest for the conflict and security round, please visit the linked pages.
