The Centre for Russian and East European Studies (CREES) is one of the world's leading research institutes in its field. CREES is a multi-disciplinary centre with a strong orientation towards the social sciences and history. CREES is an integrated part of the Department of Political Science and International Studies although associate members of CREES are based in many different departments across the university.
While our expertise is firmly grounded in the former states of the USSR and Eastern Europe, we recognise the global importance of this region. This is reflected in CREES' research and teaching interests that cut across Eastern and Western Europe.
The wide-ranging research programme of the Centre includes studies of Russian, Ukrainian and Central European politics, society and culture, post-socialist economic transformation, the history of Russia and the Soviet Union, and security studies.
