Dr Fraser McMillan

  • Research Associate (Politics)


I am currently a postdoctoral Research Associate at the School, having joined in March 2018 as a John Smith Centre Research Associate. I assumed my current role in May 2019, working on a Leverhulme Trust-funded project which investigates the impact of Corporate Social Responsibility on firms' political lobbying efforts. Outside this project, my primary research interest is the role of political parties' campaign promises in democratic linkage. I completed my PhD at the University of Strathclyde in 2019, where I also taught on various undergraduate courses from 2014-18.
