The doctoral student community in the Department of Politics and International Relations is organising a one-day conference to give research students a space to present and discuss their work.

The conference will be an opportunity to learn more about PhD student projects covering a wide range of topics that span democratic participation and governance, digital democracy, biopolitics, representation, identity politics and more. The event will also create a dialogue, bringing together researchers at their early stages alongside departmental members of staff.
