James Pamment

Senior Lecturer


James Pamment (PhD Stockholm University, 2011) is Associate Professor and Head of the Department of Strategic Communication at Lund University, Sweden.

My research is about how states influence one another through strategic communication, diplomacy, intelligence, aid and propaganda. Most recently, I lead a small research team that conducts research into countering disinformation. My time is currently divided between adminstrative duties at the department and providing training, process and policy support to governments and international organisations in protection from election interference and countering disinformation and hybrid influence techniques.

Prior to joining the Department of Strategic Communication in 2016, I was a postdoc at the Department of International Development at Oxford University, and at the Moody College of Communication at the University of Texas at Austin. I was also a non-residential research fellow at the University of Southern California Center on Public Diplomacy between 2013 and 2015. Previous to this, I have worked at Karlstad University, Uppsala University, Södertörn University College, and the Department of Journalism, Media & Communication at Stockholm University, where I completed my PhD in 2011.
