Dr Nigel Fletcher

Research Director

Dr Nigel Fletcher is the co-founder of the Centre for Opposition Studies, who was its Executive Director from 2010-2016. Whilst studying for a PhD at King's College London he was struck by the lack of dedicated research on Opposition as an institution, and this led him in 2008 to establish the Opposition Studies Forum, which in 2010 became the Centre for Opposition Studies.

He graduated in Politics from Queen Mary, University of London, where he was awarded the Professor Lord Smith Prize for his dissertation on the Conservative Party in Opposition. He was Special Adviser on Education policy in the Conservative Research Department from 2004 to 2008, serving shadow ministers including David Willetts, David Cameron and Michael Gove. He was a Councillor in the Royal Borough of Greenwich from 2005-2014, where he served as Deputy Leader of the Opposition.
