Arthur Lupia is the Hal R. Varian Professor of Political Science at the University of Michigan and a Research Professor at the Institute for Social Research. Arthur Lupia examines how information and institutions affect policy and politics. He studies how people make decisions when they lack information and has applied these insights to topics such as voting and elections, civic competence, legislative-bureaucratic relations, parliamentary governance, and the role of the media and the internet in politics.
