J‑PAL Southeast Asia
J-PAL Southeast Asia, which is based at the University of Indonesia, supports researchers undertaking randomized evaluations in the region; trains and builds the capacity of local researchers to conduct randomized evaluations; and disseminates research results and collaborates with policymakers to integrate findings into current and future development policies and programs.
J-PAL Southeast Asia Executive Director Lina Marliani shares examples from J-PAL affiliated researchers’ work to highlight how randomized evaluations can be used to inform open governance programs.
Executive Director Rachel Glennerster shares lessons learned for moving from effective research to action from J-PAL’s nearly two decades of work, including the example of Generasi from Indonesia.
Researchers conducted a randomized evaluation with the Indonesian government that compared self-targeting to automatic screening in the context of a conditional cash transfer program. Requiring households to apply for a cash transfer program in Indonesia discouraged rich households from seeking out benefits and identified a relatively poorer group of beneficiaries.
When resources are constrained, how can governments ensure that they are delivering social protection programs in the most cost-effective way? Researchers partnered with the Indonesian government to design and test how identification cards affected program outcomes. View a recording of Bambang Widianto and Rema Hanna discussing this research partnership and its policy implications.
There are 48 ongoing and completed randomized evaluations in 10 countries in Southeast Asia.
