Political Behaviour

The Political Behaviour Group brings together a diverse group of faculty and students from across the LSE to share research on topics related to public opinion, voting and elections, political communication, civic participation, and political psychology. Drawing on varied methodological perspectives and disciplinary traditions, and engaging researchers from other LSE departments (including Media and Communications, Methodology, Psychological and Behavioural Science), the group holds a weekly lunchtime research seminar throughout the academic year and hosts visiting scholars from across the UK and abroad.

Faculty members from the Political Behaviour Group are world leading experts in their field, regularly appear on national and international media, have been awarded numerous competitive research grants and fellowships from national and international funding bodies, and teach across the Government Department's various BSc and MSc programmes.

The political Behaviour Seminar is supported by the Government Department and is open to all members of the LSE community.
