In collaboration with the Governance and Local Development (GLD) team and a team of researchers from the University of Bergen, I spent a month in Malawi running a tablet-based survey (N=8,000+) and leading a Malawian team of researchers to collect data from local government institutions. The survey covers various aspects of national and local politics including parsing out the differential effects of patrimonial versus matrimonial tribal structures on popular views of the proper role of women in society, drivers of vote buying, and differential voting behavior across local and national elections. With collaborators, I currently have this working paper under review from this project: Poverty and Clientelism: Do the Poor Embrace Vote Buying?
