Senior Lecturer in Media and Communications, University of Westminster

Doug Specht is a Senior Lecturer at the Communication and Media Research Institute, within the University of Westminster. My research examines how knowledge is constructed and codified through digital and cartographic artefacts, centering on development issues.

I was in El Salvador during the build-up and process of the elections under a Global Challenges Research Fund project to examine democracy and the strengthening of democratic institutions in the developing world (with an Central American focus in this case). This was my third such trip, having also been a part of the last two presidential elections.
