Reshaping Institutions: Evidence on Aid Impacts Using a Pre-analysis Plan (UC Berkeley)

The Center for Effective Global Action's 2012 Evidence to Action symposium, “The Road from Conflict to Recovery”, brought together academics and policymakers to discuss strategies for promoting recovery in fragile states and conflict-affected communities. In particular, Ted and Katherine Casey discussed the challenges of community driven development in post-war settings.  They presented results from their GoBifo study in Sierra Leone, an intensive program to promote democratic decision-making within villages, in which they found no impact on social norms (i.e. involvement of marginalized groups in community decision making).  They also discussed their use of the pre-analysis plan and the importance of having a registry for social science research to record such plans.
