For Establishing An Action Research And Learning Exchange On Transparency And Accountability

Overview
This planning grant would explore the establishment of a transparency and accountability action research and learning exchange at the School of International Service. The exchange is envisioned to bring practitioners together with researchers to deepen understanding about what works, where, and how, in the application of tools designed to make governments more responsive to citizens. Research often lags behind practice in this field, and the exchange seeks to ensure that the research agenda is driven by practitioners’ needs, while encouraging dialogue among experts across sectors.

for support to develop gender-sensitive macroeconomic models for policy analysis  
This supplement grant will support American University to undertake qualitative and quantitative fieldwork in South Korea as part of the Care Work and the Economy project. Overall, the project seeks to incorporate the care economy and gender-disaggregated activities explicitly into macroeconomic models. This additional funding will allow an interdisciplinary research team to more accurately measure the aggregate care economy and examine the nature of care provision using a mixed methods approach.
for support to develop gender-sensitive macroeconomic models for policy analysis  
This grant will support American University to lead a working group composed of scholars from multiple disciplines to help produce new research that incorporates the care economy and gender-disaggregated activities into macroeconomic models. The project will include three work streams: (a) production of macroeconomic models that incorporate paid and unpaid care of children, the sick, and the elderly; (b) measurement of the aggregate care economy; and (c) production of empirical research that integrates an understanding of care as an element of the economy.
