Nick Falcinella is a PhD student in the department of Politics and International Relations. His research interest is in parties of the centre-left with regard to elections, voting behaviour and electoral trends, populism and ideology and discourse.  

Nick's PhD Thesis is a study of the electoral challenges facing centre-left parties in Australia, the United Kingdom and the United States. It ustilises a synthetic approach to analyse a range of phenomena including the changing sociological character and profile of centre-left voters, possible tensions between materialist and postmaterialist conceptions of politics, and the ideology and discourse of centre-left parties. It also includes an examination of the notions of 'identity politics' and populism and their respective relationships to the centre-left.
