Research Overview

My research is chiefly concerned with UK Politics, with particular reference to the relationship between ideas and practice; the Conservative Party; and think tanks. I am currently working on books concerning British Foreign Policy (with Simon Mabon and Robert Smith), and the coalition government (with Pete Dorey).
