John Parkinson's published work ranges across topics including legitimacy and deliberative democracy; public participation initiatives in the UK National Health Service; the evaluation of referendums as decision making tools; and British democratic institutions. He is Associate Professor of Public Policy at the University of Warwick, where he works on democracy and public policy, especially the application of normative political theory to policy and institutions.
