Professor of Politics, Complexity and Policy
Professor Geyer's research interests have evolved in several directions. His background is international political economy with a regional expertise on the European Union. For the past 15 years his main focus has been on applying complexity theory to public policy and using it as a framework for moving beyond the boundaries of evidence based policy making and the current fixation with the audit/targeting culture in UK policy.
Robert's other core area of research is in EU social and health policy with a particular emphasis on drug advertising and regulation policy. Other areas of interest are in international political economy, Scandinavian social democracy, and European politics in general.
