REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS 

The Evidence in Governance and Politics (EGAP) network is soliciting proposals for field experiments that seek to assess the effects of community policing programs to build citizen trust in and improve the effectiveness of police services. This Metaketa round is funded by the UK's Department for International Development and invites studies that address the central question of how to build trusted and effective police services in contexts where the legitimacy of the state is challenged with two or more experimental treatment conditions. A common arm, to be rolled out in a consistent manner by all supported projects, should implement a community policing program consisting of two components: (1) a community engagement program to solicit information on community problems from citizens and transmit information about police programs to citizens; and (2) a problem-oriented policing program, in which police address problems identified through community engagement programs directly with small, dedicated budgets and/or indirectly with the assistance of other public and private agencies. 

Awards will range from $150,000 to $250,000. Please see the link to the full request for proposals along with links to the submission form and budget template below. 

Please submit all materials in a PDF format to grants@e-gap.org. The deadline for submission is January 4, 2017, 5:00pm Pacific Standard Time.

Metaketa IV: Conflict Summary of EOIs


CALL FOR EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST

The Evidence in Governance and Politics network (EGAP) is requesting expressions of interest (EOIs) for leading edge experimental research projects on how to build trusted and effective public security providers in developing countries. This grant round is specifically designed to foster knowledge accumulation across studies and is supported by funding from the UK Department for International Development. Successful applicants will engage in closely related projects and adhere to a common set of research standards. For this round, EGAP will support 5-7 research projects that address a common theme. This request for short EOIs seeks to identify clusters of research projects with comparable interventions and outcome measures, which will form the basis of the main call. 

Please submit your EOI in a PDF format to grants@e-gap.org. The deadline for submission is October 27, 2016, 11:59pm Pacific Standard Time.
