Does Development Aid Undermine Political Accountability? Leader and Constituent Responses to a Large-Scale Intervention

Raymond Guiteras and Ahmed Mobarak ()

Working Papers from eSocialSciences

Abstract: Comprehensive program evaluation requires capturing indirect effects of an intervention, such as changes in leaders’ efforts and constituents’ attitudes towards leaders. We study political economy responses to a large-scale development program in Bangladesh, in which 346 communities consisting of 16,600 households were randomly assigned subsidies for sanitation investments. [Working Paper No. 489].
