Jori Korpershoek

I am Jori Korpershoek, a PhD student at the Erasmus School of Economics in Rotterdam. I am a political economy and am primarily interested in how knowledge and information are distributed and used in political systems. My current interests are the rise and fall of local media, decentralization, and citizen's ability to effectively lobby politicians. I am a visiting scholar at Columbia University's Department of Political Science during the Fall of 2023.
