Evidence Summit Pilot: Policy Experiment, Hosted by Evidence in Governance and Politics (EGAP)

Special Event | May 17 | 10 a.m.-2:30 p.m. | Martin Luther King Jr. Student Union, Pauley Ballroom

 Evidence in Governance & Politics (EGAP)

EGAP has just completed a set of six pre-coordinated and randomized field experiments on information and accountability in developing countries. We will be hosting an event in Washington, D.C. in the early part of the summer to disseminate the results of these six experiments to policymakers. The event will contain an experimental component to help us better understand how policymakers absorb and process the findings of academic research.

In preparation for this event, we will be conducting a pilot experiment at UC Berkeley. We would love for you to attend! The pilot will be a chance to learn new things about social science and political accountability, make friends, connect with EGAP, and do us a huge favor in helping fine-tune our design.

Note, you do not need to be a political scientist to attend the event! Just someone who is interested in politics, development, current affairs, and subsidized lunches, and who has a few hours to spare following the end of the semester.

Feel free to pass this invitation along to others who you think may also be eager to come along. The more the merrier! The event will last from 10:00am to 2:30pm, on Wednesday, May 17, and will be held in the Pauley Ballroom in the Martin Luther King Jr. Student Union. We will be providing a free lunch as well as coffee throughout the day.
