Research

My research is largely on various political ideologies, analysing the political impact of ideologies as diverse as New Labour, Italian liberal socialism, French fascism,  both historic and contemporary, and radical environmentalism. There are two main foci for my current research. The first concerns the evolution of French liberal socialism from 1830 to the present; the second is on French radical right wing populism, with a particular focus on the Front National. Recent papers produced on these are:
