Zachary Young

Title 
Dahl Scholar, 2015-2016

As a Dahl Scholar, Zach Young worked with Professor Alan Gerber exploring the implications of institutional federalism on the transparency of the democratic process. His finding were that federalism can obfuscate accountability for public officials, but also limit jurisdictional mismatches in policy-making.

Currently, Zach attends the Paris Institute of Political Studies as a David-Weill Scholar, where his studies focus on digital policy-making. He is also part-time reporter for Politico Europe, and is the TA for a class on “Digital and Innovative Government.”
