Research in the Department
The Department’s research is structured into three active research clusters.
- Global Ethics and Political Theory (GEPT)
- Intelligence, Security and Strategic Studies (ISSS)
- Parties, Participation and Public Opinion (3PO)
These groups aim to promote and support high quality research, acting as a stimulating and supportive research environment for research staff and PhD students working in these areas. The three clusters meet regularly, organise seminars with external speakers and serve as a platform to discuss research in progress by staff and PhD students.
All our staff are actively engaged in publishing high-quality outputs from their research. You will find here a selected list of staff publications, and can find a more comprehensive list of publications on their individual pages.
Staff in the Department engage in wide-ranging, international recognised research on a broad range of topics. These pages include information about current and past externally-funded research projects in the Department.
The Department offers a wide-range of research degrees, both campus based and by Distance Learning, and a vibrant Postgraduate Research (PGR) Student culture.
We will be happy to welcome you if you are interested in undertaking a research degree with us.
