Craig works full-time for the ECMI as a junior researcher, primarily focusing on the role of national minorities in regional development and on minority language media across Europe. This includes a focus on the socioeconomic aspects of linguistic minorities such as Celtic language speakers in the British Isles. In addition, a second research pole is focused around the policy of Universal Basic Income and how redistributive policies would affect national minorities. This is covered from an EU-wide perspective but also focuses on arguments of justice and empowerment. His recent ECMI publications can be viewed here.

Alongside his research, Craig’s organisational responsibilities at the ECMI concern the International Conference “Minorities and Self-Determination - 100th Anniversary of the Post-World War I Plebiscites, the ECMI Summer School, plus editorial responsibility for a new expert interview series on the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on minority language media. He was previously the lead coordinator of the ECMI Spring School.

A graduate of MA / MSc European Studies at Europa Universität Flensburg and the University of Southern Denmark, Craig is now enrolled as a PhD candidate at the Europa Universität Flensburg. His previous studies include a BA Business Management from the University of Brighton, UK.
