Shorenstein Center Discussion Papers are written by fellows and visiting scholars. They are works of academic writing related to the Center’s core research initiatives, and are published by the Center with the goal of getting new ideas and research into the public eye.
The views expressed in Shorenstein Center Discussion Papers are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily reflect those of Harvard Kennedy School or of Harvard University.
Discussion Papers have not undergone formal review and approval. Such papers are included in this series to elicit feedback and to encourage debate on important issues and public policy challenges.
Discussion Papers are published under the Kennedy School’s Open Access policy. Papers may be downloaded and will remain available to the public for free on our website.
