John Greenaway lectures on British Politics and Policy Making; he also has an interest in political parties and ideologies in Western Europe. He teaches a second year unit on Topics in British Politics where students study in-depth three or four developments like the changing nature of Whitehall, the reform of Parliament; electoral reform etc. In the third year he teaches a unit in which students examine how decisions really get made by relating a case-study of their choice to theories of decision-making and the policy process.
He has developed and organised the highly successful Parliamentary Internship scheme whereby students research a policy issue for one of the local MPs.
John graduated in 1968 with a degree in History at Cambridge University. He was awarded a doctorate in Politics at the University of Leeds in an aspect of late-nineteenth century British Politics. His intellectual approach spans the disciplines of History and Politics. In the past he has researched the reform of the British Civil Service as far back as the 1850s. At present he is researching the Politics of Alcohol Control in Britain from 1830-1960.
John is local co-ordinator of Charter 88 in Norwich.
