About the author

Anthony SalamoneAnthony Salamone is a political scientist specialising in EU and UK politics. At the moment, he studies how EU countries (particularly the UK and its component parts) adapt to the European Union at national and subnational levels and how devolution has changed the politics of the UK. He is also interested in international politics and the links between British and American politics.

Anthony has a first class honours degree in French and German and European Union Studies from the University of Edinburgh. He is currently close to finishing a Master’s degree in Global Politics at the London School of Economics and Political Science. Following this, he will be starting a PhD looking at territorial politics in England in the contexts of UK devolution and European integration.

Anthony is strongly committed to increasing public understanding of the European Union and how it affects peoples’ lives. To that end, he founded and served as the first President of the Edinburgh University European Union Society. He also restarted and is currently the President of the LSE Students’ Union European Society. These organisations foster debate and discussion on EU affairs, providing opportunities for students, teachers, members of the public to engage with each other and to make up their own minds on issues which influence everyone.

Anthony also worked as Assistant Editor of the LSE European Politics and Policy (EUROPP) Blog. He believes in education, civic engagement and publicly accessible knowledge.
