Stimulating cutting edge research

(Director of Research)
Our diversity and the disciplinary mix of political science, political theory, policy analysis, social anthropology, political sociology and others make for a very stimulating environment for students to develop their own research projects.
The integration of our research community is further enhanced through the International Relations & European Politics (IREP) postgraduate group.
