Matthew Winters, Associate Professor, Department of Political Science, and Kate Baldwin (Yale University), are working on a research project in Uganda about how the beneficiaries of foreign-funded, NGO-implemented development projects think about governance and accountability. In collaboration with Innovations for Poverty Action Uganda, they collected household survey data in eight communities with Japanese-funded small-scale infrastructure projects in January 2016. The preliminary results of this project are published in The National Interest (http://nationalinterest.org/feature/does-japans-foreign-aid-africa-provide-diplomatic-benefits-18242).
