His work focuses on the fields of political communication and mobilization, news and journalism, and democratic engagement and governance. He is currently Professor of Political Science at Royal Holloway, University of London. His latest book The Hybrid Media System: Politics and Power was released in 2013.
Chadwick completed his PhD under the supervision of Professor Rodney Barker at the London School of Economics. His thesis later became his first book, Augmenting Democracy: Political Movements and Constitutional Reform During the Rise of Labour, 1900-1924.
Chadwick was the Head of Department in Politics and International Relations at Royal Holloway from 2006-2009. He is also the Founder and Co-Director, with Professor Ben O'Loughlin, of the New Political Communication Unit based at Royal Holloway.
Chadwick has contributed to field-building in this area of communication studies. He edited the Handbook of Internet Politics with Philip N. Howard, and is the founder and editor of Oxford Studies in Digital Politics. He was awarded the American Sociological Association's Best Book Award (Communication and Information Technologies Section) in 2007 for his book Internet Politics: States, Citizens and New Communication Technologies. His most recent book, The Hybrid Media System: Politics and Power, offers a critical analysis of the exercise of power in a media system characterized by a meshing of media types.
In 2014 Chadwick is one of eight Commissioners on the Commission on Civil Society and Democratic Engagement, which has been launched in response to concerns raised regarding the UK Government's proposed Transparency of Lobbying, Non-party Campaigning and Trade Union Administration Bill.
