The evidence stems from surveys and lab-in-the- eld experiments that we ran in eight di erent unions (municipalities) with three di erent groups: (i) a random sample of the elderly population (potential bene ciaries), (ii) a random sample of newly selected bene ciaries, and (iii) the local government representatives, who were in charge of the last round of selections. On the one hand, our (pre-registered) analysis suggests that personal relationships are crucial for being selected as a bene ciary, which might indicate corruption. On the other hand, our results strongly suggest that a severe lack of state capacity (e.g., knowledge of the o cial rules and procedures on the part of the politicians) is the most important reason for the very poor targeting performance of the local governments.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:creator>Fischbacher, Urs</dc:creator> <dcterms:issued>2020-06</dcterms:issued> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="https://rightsstatements.org/page/InC/1.0/"/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2020-10-01T07:17:38Z</dcterms:available> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/46"/> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/51145"/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:creator>Asri, Viola</dc:creator> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/43613"/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/46"/> <dc:contributor>Rabbani, Atonu</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Asri, Viola</dc:contributor> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/43613"/> <dc:contributor>Fehrler, Sebastian</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Fischbacher, Urs</dc:contributor> <dcterms:title>Contacts Matter : Local Governance and the Targeting of Social Pensions in Bangladesh</dcterms:title> <dc:contributor>Michaelowa, Katharina</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Michaelowa, Katharina</dc:creator> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/51145/1/Asri_2-10okoggvv9qu79.pdf"/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2020-10-01T07:17:38Z</dc:date> <dc:contributor>Biswas, Kumar</dc:contributor> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/51145/1/Asri_2-10okoggvv9qu79.pdf"/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:creator>Rabbani, Atonu</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Fehrler, Sebastian</dc:creator> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
