Our research environment
Much of our research is interdisciplinary and often focused on policy development or contemporary problem-orientation. Some of the key themes, which link staff across the departments, include:
- Conflict and security
- Environment and sustainability
- Poverty and social justice
- Childhood and youth
- Health and wellbeing
- Technology and the knowledge economy
Each of our departments has a set of core research clusters, groups or themes uniting the 160 academic staff within the Faculty.
- Politics, Languages & International Studies
- Social & Policy Sciences
In addition to our departmental research and interdisciplinary research projects, our Faculty also coordinate a range of Research Sandpits. These intense processes stimulate new research proposals across a diverse range of academic disciplines.
