I'm a (part-time) Senior Professor in Politics and Education, in the School of Social Sciences at London Metropolitan University.
I also have a Jean Monnet (ad personam) Chair in Citizenship Education in Europe, and am a Fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences (UK).
I used to be the Director of Institute for Policy Studies in Education (IPSE) at London Metropolitan, from 2000 to 2009, and I also established the Children's Identity and Citizenship in Europe Academic Network for the European Commission in 1998, and directed this till 2008.
I retired from full-time employment in the summer of 2009, since when I’ve been conducting a personal research study of how young people in Europe construct their political identities – locally, in their own state, as Europeans, and globally. I continue to be interested in researching and promoting policies for social justice and equity in education.

the progress of my current major project, on how young people in Europe construct their political identities - with respect to their town, region, country/nation, Europe and beyond. This has covered 30 counties so far, 105 different places - see the map to the left - and small group discussions with over 2000 young people between 11 and 20 – and it’s planned to grow further.
