POLSIS Research

The research strategy of the Department of Political Science and International Studies (POLSIS) concentrates upon the development of a vibrant and sustainable research culture, the publication of high-quality research, the targeting of external funding for our research and the development of a funded doctoral programme.

The Department has established itself as a centre of excellence in political science, political economy, sociology, comparative politics, political theory, international studies (e.g. European, Eurasian and Asian politics), international relations theory and security and conflict. Our approach to research is inclusive and we welcome colleagues from across the university to join our research groups.
