John Hogan, Politics Lecturer and DIT Collge of Business Research Fellow

I have consulted with and advised the Irish, Czech, and UK governments, and the EU Parliament and Commission, on matters to do with lobbying regulation and transparency and accountability.

My research focuses on how policy paradigms can help us understand policy development and change, and improve policy measures to ensure transparency in democracies.

I have published extensively in international political science journals on comparative public policy. I have written and edited a number of books on policy paradigms, global lobbying regulations, Irish politics and society and research methodologies.  I am a reviewer for some of the leading political science journals in the world.

I am a regular panel convener, chair, discussant and participant at the APSA, MPSA and PSA and ECPR conferences.  I am also director of the Comparative Public Policy section of the Midwest Political Science Association.

An IRCHSS Research Fellow for the duration of both my MA and PhD (1999-2001; 2002-2005), I conducted postdoctoral research in the Department of Political Science, Trinity College Dublin.  I have won over half a million euros in research funding.

Formerly a DIT Teaching Fellow, I lecturer on Irish politics and international political economy. I am also a founding director of the DIT Research Centre for Business, Society & Sustainability.  In 2016 I was made a DIT research fellow.

I welcome inquiries from potential research students (research masters or Ph.D) particularly in the areas of policy studies and lobbying regulation policy.
