Politics & International Relations
My research interests lie in the area of European Union Politics, especially political parties, elections and the European Parliament. I have published in journals suchas 'Representation', 'The Political Quarterly', and the 'Australian Journal of Political Science', as well as in a monograph for Routledge.I am presently researching the policies of political parties that prefer to be identified as 'Euro-realist' as opposed to 'Euro-sceptic', especially those affiliated to the European Conservatives and Reformists (ECR) - my analysis will be published in a new book for Manchester University Press (2020).I am academic director of 'Jean Monnet at Lancaster', a EC-funded project aiming to promote EU studies at Lancaster University and its wider community.
