Stanford University’s Center for Democracy, Development, and the Rule of Law has recently set up a new Program on American Politics in Comparative Perspective. Several leading scholars of American and comparative politics are affiliated with the program, which will identify relevant insights from comparative politics and bring them to bear in discussions about potential reforms in the United States. Topics that the program will explore include electoral systems, budgeting processes, and measures of legislative and administrative effectiveness. This grant will provide general support for the program so that it can develop these lines of inquiry and others that may arise.
