The paper "Ethnicity in Time: Politics, History, and the Relationship between Ethnic Diversity and Public Goods Provision" by Prerna Singh and Matthias vom Hau has been awarded the Editorial Best Paper Award by Comparative Political Studies (CPS). The prize is given annually by the CPS editorial board to the best paper published with the journal in the previous year.
This article revisits and seeks to challenge one of the most powerful hypotheses in the political economy scholarship: the supposedly negative relationship between ethnic diversity and public goods provision.
