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 in Political Behaviour at the University of Essex.


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. My third article is recently published in Party Politics.

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.
