Biography

Malcolm Harvey is a teaching fellow in Politics, appointed in September 2016.  He was previously engaged as a research fellow in the department, firstly attached to Professor Michael Keating's project "Constitutional Futures and Models of Policy-Making"; then through the Centre on Constitutional Change; and latterly helping to organise and participate in a seminar series on the "UK in a Changing Europe" programme, each of which were funded by the ESRC as part of their commitment to the changing Scottish and EU constitutional debates.

Malcolm graduated from the University of Stirling in 2006 with a first-class Honours degree in Politics, and received his MScEcon in Terrorism and International Relations from the University of Wales, Aberystwyth in 2008.  His PhD, awarded by the University of Stirling in 2015, considered the constitutional consultations run by the Scottish and Welsh Governments during the 2007-11 Scottish Parliament and Welsh Assembly terms.  

He has taught modules on British Politics and Political Theory at both the University of Stirling and the University of Strathclyde, and lectured on Nationalism at Aberdeen. He now teaches courses on Devolution and Constitutional Change, and on American Politics.

Malcolm lives in Aberdeenshire with his wife, his daughter and his cat.
