Diane Bolet

I am a political scientist and comparativist, specialised in voting behaviour, public opinion and far-right politics in Europe. I am an Assistant Professor at Durham University from September 2021 and spend my first year (2021-2022) at the University of Zürich as a research fellow. 


I hold a PhD in Political Science from the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) where I investigated how local context shapes voting preferences for the radical right in European countries.


My thesis won an honourable mention for the Ernst B. Haas Dissertation Prize for the best dissertation on European Politics from the European Politics and Society section of APSA. My first article is published in the European Journal of Political Research. My second article is published in Comparative Political Studies. 

Previously, I earned a distinction Dual MSc degree in European Politics from Sciences Po, Paris and LSE and a Higher Distinction BA in International Politics from King’s College, London.
