He is research associate of the Martens Centre and associate fellow of the Europe Programme of Chatham House. His research interests lie on the intersection of international relations and comparative politics, with emphasis on the role of political parties in foreign policy, the international sources and impact of populism, and dynamics of contestation and legitimacy in world politics.


Research Project

As a Jean Monnet fellow in 2020-21, Chryssogelos studies the relationship between the emergence of populism and the functioning of global governance. His project understands populism as a discourse of international politics that articulates reaction to globalization as representational claims of the ‘people’ towards elites enmeshed in complex processes of transnational and supranational governance. The implication is that populism is fed not just by a confluence of material and cultural grievances, but also by the disconnect between political communities and the networked mode of global governance that has managed globalization. Addressing legitimacy deficits of global governance may be significant in countering the rise of populism.
