Accountable institutions and behaviour
This supports basic scientific research that advances knowledge and understanding of issues broadly related to attitudes, behaviour and institutions connected to public policy and the provision of public services.
Projects may be single cases or can be done in a comparative context, either over time or cross-sectionally. They may be in the area of individual and group-decision making, appointed or elected political institutions, attitude and preference formation and expression, electoral processes and voting, public administration or public policy. Applied research cannot be funded.Foreign organisations may apply in consortium with US organisations. The proposer must explain why local support is not feasible and why the foreign organisation can carry out the activity more effectively.
