My research interests range from political communication and governance to international affairs, globalisation and new media. Bringing together elements from different social science disciplines has been a passion since my student days. However, the particular issue of the challenges facing democracy in the 21st century is at the core of my research. I am currently exploring emerging forms of civic engagement within a context of globalisation, extremism, individualism and consumerism. The ultimate aim of my quest is to establish ways of mobilising and empowering citizens within the context of pressing global challenges.
