Ongoing Projects

We provide descriptives on how people who have been deported approach decision-making using data from US deportees in Guatemala.

We test the effects of Colombia’s Reintegration Route with a unique survey of excombatants, focus groups, and interviews.

We test competing theories of vigilantism using observational and experimental data from 18,000 households in Guatemala.
