I attended a conference a few weeks ago on Experimental and Quasi-Experimental Methods Applied to the Study of Governance in the Developing World. John Gerring, one of the conference organizers, offered this selected bibliography on his BU webpage as a suggested reading list. I keep finding myself going back to this page to download one article or another, and thought it should be more broadly shared.
Some really suberb selections:
- Ben Olken on monitoring corruption in Indonesia
- Experimental evidence on women as policy makers from Chattopadhyay and Duflo
- The new bible on randomized evaluations by Duflo, Glennerster and Kremer
- The now classic experiment where Leonard Wantchekon convinced politicians in Benin to randomize their election strategies in losing districts.
