School of Politics and International Relations

International Collaborations

We collaborate with research groups in Europe, the Americas, Africa and Asia-Pacific. These are strengthened through our research centres and are further enhanced by the University's campuses in China and Malaysia.

The University's campuses in China and Malaysia

The School of International Studies at the University of Nottingham's Ningbo campus is an inter-disciplinary department that uses a range of methodological techniques, primarily historical and qualitative narratives.

Specific areas of strength that overlap with our school at Nottingham include China, Conflict and Security Analysis and Political Economy.

The University of Nottingham Malaysia's School of Politics, History and International Relations shares many research interests with the Nottingham school. These include Politics, Terrorism and Extremism in South East Asia, the role of the emerging economies – Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa, known as BRICS, fiscal policy and civil service reform.

Tri-campus research centres

These centres are open to membership from all the University's campuses, and foster collaborations between the UK, China and Malaysia.


Project collaborations

Many of our projects involve overseas collaborators:

Monitoring the implementation of China's Overseas NGO Law

China’s Overseas NGO Law

This Ford Foundation funded study led by Dr Andreas Fulda assesses how the recent China NGO law has affected parties in Europe. The research, to be conducted between October 2017 and December 2018 will assess the effect this law has had on European organisations and their Chinese partners. Against this backdrop, we have collaborations with the Institute of Development Studies in Germany, the Rights Practice and will work closely with the stakeholders in Berlin and Brussels.

Alleviating poverty in the wake of Typhoon Yolanda

Typhoon Yolanda

This ESRC funded study led by Dr Pauline Eadie, explores the impact of Typhoon Yolanda which hit the Philippines in November 2013. The project assesses what causes people to enter or escape from poverty and how we can develop ways of getting people out of extreme poverty in ways that can be applied in other disaster situations. The research began in March 2015 and involves collaborators at the University of the Philippines in Diliman and our sister campus in Ningbo, China. The project website contains more information.
