Biography

Described by one BBC journalist as 'a man who watches Westminster', Dr Lilleker is a lecturer and researcher in political communication with particular interests in political party and candidate communication and the link to citizen and voter engagement.

Currently leading or contributing to units covering political communication, communication theory and reception theory with options offered across the final year of the CMC framework.

In addition, Dr Lilleker is Director of the Centre for Public Communication Research and Head of Research within the CMC academic group; Chair of the PSA Political Marketing Specialist Group; Panel Convenor for Political Communication for the ECPR and a member of ECREA.

Research

Dr Lilleker's research concerns both the professionalisation, marketization and strategic development of political communication and the impacts upon citizen engagement.

His research has covered local election campaigning and the impact upon voter choices; and party, candidate and MP's usage of the Internet, from websites to social media, and correlations between usage and gaining support.

He was involved in two FP7 consortiums exploring how social media could be an agent within conflict resolution and is currently leading a project exploring online political engagement in the context of the 2014 European parliamentary election.

In addition to empirical works, he has just completed a manuscript on political cognition which explores how citizens respond to political communication which draws on theories from consumer psychology as well as psephological studies.

Public Engagement & Outreach Activities

  • Invited lecture to the IACB on consumer psychology as part of the Future Fit Communications workshop
  • The main focus is how the average person, with low interest in politics and knowledge of the intricacies of political decision making, weighs up campaign communication to arrive at a decision on polling day. The event will be framed around examples from the UK 2015 General Election Campaign, the May local and mayoral elections and, if it does not take place prior to the event, will look forward to the EU membership referendum.
  • Politics should be about engaging the public, informing them, interesting them, exciting them and involving them. Yet there is widespread disinterest, disengagement and distrust in our political system. This one-day event is designed for sharing ideas about why the public show disinterest and distrust and how we might consider re-engaging the public, encouraging people to get involved in politics. The workshop presents research findings from the Centre for Politics & Media Research which focuses at the local and national level of politics. We will introduce ideas ranging from understanding the political consumer to how to engage and mobilise members of the public using the latest technologies and how to audit communication. The day will comprise five sessions:
  • This half-day workshop explores how people receive communication, and how communication can be designed to have impact on the values, beliefs and attitudes people form and hold.
