Pamela Campa receives one of the Christiaan Huygens Reproduction and Replication Prizes
The Christiaan Huygens Reproduction and Replication Prize is awarded by the Institute for Replication to three teams of researchers to honor their replication and reproduction work. This year, Pamela Campa (SITE), Manuel Bagues (University of Warwick) and Giulian Etingin-Frati (University of Zurich) have received the prize for their work titled "Gender Differences in Cooperation in the U.S. Congress? An Extension of Gagliarducci and Paserman” (2022).
The research paper explores the dynamics of gender differences in cooperation within the U.S. Congress. By meticulously reproducing and extending the work of Gagliarducci and Paserman, Campa's team has provided valuable insights that contribute to a better understanding of the nuances of legislative cooperation, how gender and ideology both play a role in it, and how ideological differences along gender and party lines change over time.
Pamela Campa expressed her gratitude for the recognition. She said, "We are very grateful to the Institute for Replication for this prize but also for the important work that they are doing. They are incentivizing and facilitating replication and reproduction of research work, which is crucial for advancing scientific knowledge. I learned a lot from reproducing the paper from Gagliarducci and Paserman (2020) on the dynamics of cooperation in legislation and how gender and ideology interplay to shape those dynamic. Perhaps even more importantly, reproducing someone else’s work made me also more aware of how I can make my own research work as transparent as possible."
