Dr. Lawrence McKay is a British Academy Postdoctoral Research Fellow based in the Department of Politics and International Relations (PAIR). His three-year project, running between 2022 and 2025, is titled 'The Revival of the Urban-Rural Divide in Western Europe: A comparative study of the geography of discontent and political representation'. The project will draw together existing and original data from surveys and elections to produce a picture of Europe's evolving political divisions.
