Dr Chrysa Lamprinakou
Teaching Fellow in British Politics
Dr Chrysa Lamprinakou is a Teaching Fellow in British Politics. She was previously an Associate Lecturer at Brunel University. She holds PhD and MRes degrees in Politics from Brunel University, an MA degree in Communications Policy Studies from City University and a BA (Hons) degree in Politics from the University of Essex. Her research contributed to theory building in political parties by offering an alternative integrated approach to the study of political communication and marketing. More specifically, drawing upon the classic approaches of party organisation and political communication and marketing, she developed a conceptual framework of party campaigning in order to bridge the gap between these two literatures on party activity politics. Chrysa is a specialist on British and Greek political parties. Her main research interests include political parties, election campaigns and electoral behaviour, political communication and marketing.
Chrysa has worked on various research projects, including an ESRC funded project on constituency campaigning (2010), a McDougall Trust funded project on Electoral system change across Europe (2011-2012), a European Commission funded project on the impact of Voter Advice Application in UK local elections (2011). She has recently carried out a study on the ‘Yes to Fairer Votes’ AV Referendum campaign with Dr Alan Renwick at the University of Reading on behalf of the Electoral Reform Society.
