Welcome to the Centre for the Study of Political Ideologies

The Centre for the Study of Political Ideologies (CSPI) is a centre for the interdisciplinary and comparative study of the ways in which ideologies are formed and performed in political practice and lived experience.

The study of political ideologies cuts across many of the conventional boundaries that separate academic disciplines. It is thus also recognised that both the term 'ideology' and the diverse interpretations of ideology play a vital part across many of the humanities as well as social sciences.

CSPI is an interdisciplinary research centre based in both the School of Politics and International Relations and the Department of History at The University of Nottingham.
