Dr Clare Coombe (she/her) has a PhD in Classics and an MTh in Theology, and she works as a writer and educator. In the past she has been a university lecturer, director of adult learning, and secondary school teacher.

Political Philosophy is an interest that has stemmed from her academic studies, but she is largely an amateur with a passion. Over a career working with young people, she has become particularly interested in getting students to think about politics and becoming active members of society, who are sufficiently politically intelligent and educated to vote thoughtfully, engage with concerns they have for the future of their world, and play a full part in the democratic process.
