Research Fellow of the Centre on Constitutional Change, University of Aberdeen

Malcolm Harvey is a researcher on the ESRC-funded project "Constitutional Futures and Models of Policy-Making" as part of ESRC's commitment to fund academic research into the Scottish constitutional debate. The project seeks to consider what scope would Scotland have to fashion its own social and economic settlement under different constitutional scenarios, given the legal, institutional and economic constraints it would face.
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, submitted to the University of Stirling in 2013, 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.
Malcolm lives in Aberdeenshire with his wife, his daughter and his cat.
