For A Conference On Parties, Polarization And Policy Demanders

Overview
Scholars associated with the "UCLA School" of political parties have argued that parties are best seen as networks or long coalitions of intense policy demanders. If they are right, what does this entail for diagnosing problems and identifying potentially helpful systemic reforms in American politics and government? This grant will support a conference of researchers prominent in this school of thought as well as leading scholars working outside of it to present and discuss different answers to this question.

for a project to develop measures of women’s economic empowerment  
This project will develop and test methods to measure women’s economic empowerment that can be incorporated into household surveys. Building on existing research, the project will create survey modules that will be placed in the public domain for use by the statistical community. The measurement methods will be used for a large nationwide survey in India. In addition, the project will support the creation of an online platform for a community of researchers, program implementers, and data collectors working on measuring and analyzing determinants and consequences of women’s economic empowerment.
