Tara Grillos

Please join me in congratulating Tara Grillos, assistant professor of political science, whose co-authored article “Governance reform, decentralization, and teamwork in public service delivery: Evidence from the Honduran health sector” received the Haldane Prize for Best Article from the public administration section of the American Political Science Association.

Using an incentivized behavioral game, the authors assessed the effectiveness of teamwork among civil servants in decentralized and comparable centrally administered municipal health systems in Honduras. The findings showed that “teams from decentralized municipalities are less effective at working together and that this is driven by the adverse effects of the reform among existing staff.”

Congratulations, Professor Grillos!
