About me

James_Strong__9337 - CopyI am a Lecturer in British Politics at Queen Mary University of London and member of the Mile End Institute. My research looks at the domestic politics of British foreign policy, including how public opinion, media debate and parliamentary politicking shape the context for decison making.

I previously spent four years as a Fellow in Foreign Policy Analysis and International Relations at the London School of Economics and Political Science, where I completed my PhD in 2012. Prior to joining the IR Department faculty I spent one year as Executive Officer to LSE Director Professor Craig Calhoun.

My first book, Public Opinion, Legitimacy and Tony Blair’s War in Iraq, was published by Routledge in 2017.

This year I am serving as course convenor for the second year undergraduate module in British Politics.

I have previously taught international politics and foreign policy analysis to research students, taught graduate students and undergraduates. I’m quite good at it, at least if you’re willing to believe my students.

My full CV is available here.

You can contact me via my Queen Mary staff page.
