1) Objective 

They invite proposals for quantitative field studies in sub-Saharan Africa countries on the topic of democracy, conflict, and polarization. The Democracy, Conflict, & Polarization research area addresses the challenge of polarization across partisan and other identity lines, including both increased affective polarization and polarization in perceptions on core issues like the economy, public safety, inequality and climate change. This research area builds on work by many members of the EGAP network who have studied polarization and its consequences for democratic backsliding, mistrust in public institutions, and poor government response to crises such as the COVID-19 pandemic. Focusing on citizens who differ in partisanship, identity, or policy preferences, potential topics include:

  • Strategies for productive public deliberation and problem solving for public policy;
  • Strategies to reduce partisan animosity and dehumanization in politics;
  • Strategies to counter hateful rhetoric in political campaigns;
  • Strategies to reduce the spread or belief in misinformation;
  • Strategies to reduce actions or norms that support political violence or extremism at the expense of democracy.

2) Eligibility 

CERAP will aim to fund approximately 14 grants of up to USD 3,000 each to teams led by principal investigators based in/from sub-Saharan Africa that will conduct research in a sub-Saharan African country.

3) Location 

Actions must take place in Sub-Saharan Africa.

4) Budget 

Grants may range up to $3,000.
