Erik Mobrand is a student of politics broadly construed. His research seeks to discover ways that informal power relationships distort formal political institutions. He has pursued research on this theme through a number of topics, including governance of rural migrants in East Asian cities, regulation of elections in South Korea, and the political careers of informal leaders in Seoul. Another stream of Mobrand’s work addresses the way the spaces upon which social science reflection is based informs knowledge production. He previously taught at the National University of Singapore.
