After graduating from Nottingham University and the University of Sussex, with undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in Politics and Social Research Methods respectively, Alan Wager recently completed an ESRC-funded doctoral thesis examining cross-party co-operation in Britain, between 1945 and 2000. Through this time, he taught British Politics at Queen Mary, University of London, and was a researcher on projects at the LSE and the University of Manchester. He produced cross-national and comparative book chapters on the Liberal Democrats and UKIP within their European party-family context, as well as on the use of leadership and statecraft theory to understand the history of Conservative leadership. He also produced peer reviewed and non-peer reviewed journal articles for British Politics, Political Studies Review and the Conservative History Journal. Alan has written blog posts on aspects of his research for The New Statesman, The Huffington Post, The Conversation and LSE Public Policy.
