The European Studies Council Hellenic Studies Program presents:
Dr Chryssogelos, Teaching Fellow in International Relations & Politics, King’s College, London: “The Dissolution of a Political Identity? Explaining the fragmentation of the Greek right (2009-2015).”
Dr Chryssogelos studied in Greece and the Netherlands before obtaining a PhD in political sciences from the European University Institute in Florence. He has taught in the universities of Antwerp and Limerick, and held a postdoctoral fellowship at the Hellenic Observatory of the LSE. Outside of academia, Dr Chryssogelos has extensive experience working for think tanks and policy institutes, including the Clingendael Institute in the Hague, the Martens Centre in Brussels, and the Europe Programme of Chatham House. His research interests are in European politics broadly defined, and Greece.
Dr Chryssogelos is generally interested in the intersection of international and domestic politics, and especially the ways party politics interact with foreign policy and international relations. His publications explore both the role of political parties and partisan actors in outcomes of world politics, and the impact of international factors on developments in domestic political arenas. His empirical focus is on Europe, including the politics and foreign policies of both the EU and European states. Dr Chryssogelos also holds a strong interest in Greek affairs, particularly Greek foreign policy and developments in the Greek party system.
