PPE Research Fellow Panel: Governance, Secrecy, and Social Networks

April 16, 2025 @ 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm America/New York Timezone
GLC Multipurpose Room (Graduate Life Center)
Michael Moehler

At this panel discussion, current PPE Research Fellows Ariel Ahram, Clara Suong, and Xu Lin will discuss their work on governance, secrecy, and social networks.

Dr. Ahram’s work explores the role of non-state actors and social institutions in governance, using the Iraq as a test site. Dr. Suong’s work, using a combination of formal and empirical methods, focuses on government secrecy about politics and its implications. Dr. Lin’s work analyzes how real-life network structures shape social interaction, with the goal of developing a unified modeling framework.
