Research

The School of Politics and International Relations' research engages with the most fundamental political questions of our time. Our research activity is organised around the school's centres and institutes. This framework provides an integrative and dynamic environment for staff to pursue individual and collective research projects.

These research projects have led to the regular production of high-quality publications by staff, awards and prizes, and frequent hosting of seminars and conferences.

Our chief research strengths lie in security, social and global justice, contemporary political theory, international history, comparative politics, and British politics.
