I have taught across a very broad range of topics in policy, politics and political theory, from leading the large Introduction to Politics first year courses, to specialist courses in democratic theory, and theories and traditions in public policy. At Maastricht I will be working on several courses including, to start with, ‘Europe: a critical reflection’.
I currently supervise:
- Ronald van Crombrugge at KU Leuven, whose PhD research is on regulating referendums for deliberative ends.
I have also supervised or advised numerous other students including:
- Dr Bahadir Celiktemur, Participation of people with disabilities in deliberative democracy (Warwick, 2017)
- Dr Lucy Ryland (née Hatton), Democratic legitimacy and the European Citizens’ Initiative: a recipe for disappointment and disaffection? (Warwick, 2016)
- Dr Seraina Pedrini, Mapping Deliberative Capacity: culture, sites, and styles (Bern, 2012)
- Dr Ashwini Swain, Macro implications of micro-participation : participatory management of electricity distribution in Eastern India (York 2012)
- Dr Tom Flynn, How deliberation changes the way people reason (York 2010)
- Dr Fiona Aspinal, Public and patient participation strategies in the NHS (York 2008)
- Professor Dave Ockwell, Knowledge claims and environmental policy (York 2007)
If you are thinking of doing a research degree, have a look at my Research page, download some papers, and have a think about linkages between my work and yours. If you are still keen, or have any questions, do please get in touch to discuss. I am always keen to hear from prospective research students.
