The Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research (SIEPR) is pleased to announce a two-year Postdoctoral Fellowship with their new initiative on Transparency, Accountability, and Citizen Engagement in West Africa (TRACE). The fellow will be based at Stanford University, and work with the principal investigators, Pascaline Dupas (Economics) and Jeremy Weinstein (Political Science), as well as with other Stanford affiliated researchers.

TRACE is a new initiative within SIEPR that aims at furthering our understanding of what interventions can strengthen the ability of citizens to obtain high quality governance and services. The initiative will focus on Francophone West Africa, a region that has to date received much less scholarly attention than other parts of the African continent, but where a number of open government and other transparency and accountability initiatives have been or are being put in place. The initiative will yield concrete suggestions on how existing knowledge can be leveraged to design new interventions and will suggest studies to close existing knowledge gaps. The initiative is funded through a grant from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation’s Global Development and Population Program.
