Politics and International Relations
The Department of Politics and International Relations is a centre of excellence for research and teaching in politics, international relations and development studies.
We have a longstanding tradition of innovative research and are home to the internationally recognised Centre for the Study of Democracy (CSD) that recently celebrated its 25th anniversary. Our research is concentrated in the following areas:
- Contemporary democratic theory and governance
- Critical international theory
- Identity and political community
- Post-colonial politics, development and emerging powers
- Resilience and sustainability
- Security, violence and international relations.
We regularly invite high profile speakers to our central London location, for our well-established series of seminars, public lectures and conferences.
