Moral Agency in Election Campaigns (ELECT), is a 5-year research project, funded by the European Research Council and led by Dr Jospeh Lacey from the School of Politics and International Relations.

It studies contemporary election campaigns in Germany, Italy, the UK and the US, with a special focus on how candidates, campaign professionals, journalists and citizens perceive campaigns and their role in them. The goals are to determine how the attitudes of these actors shape contemporary campaigns and the consequences of this for democratic norms and political trust.
