Prof Leston-Bandeira to lead project on addressing barriers to political engagement


The Centre for Democratic Politics is pleased to announce that its member Professor Cristina Leston-Bandeira has secured a grant from Research England to explore perceptions and barriers to political engagement amongst seldom-heard communities. This project is co-designed with parliamentary officials from the UK and Welsh parliaments to identify how citizens from seldom-heard groups perceive political engagement and to identify barriers and potential enablers for further engagement. The project will employ qualitative research methods and it is currently recruiting a Research Fellow (deadline for applications: 10 January 2023).
