About Mattias Agerberg


PhD candidate at the Political Science department since the fall of 2015.

My dissertation project focuses on the relationship between democracy and good governance. The aim is to form a better understanding of how corruption affects democratic behavior and under what conditions democratic institutions can help curb corruption.

Other research interests include: Gender and corruption, institutions, quantitative methodology and political psychology.
