Our academics are engaged in research across the fields of political science, political theory, public policy, international relations, and modern history.

Our aim is to stimulate innovative research that has the potential to transform academic and public debates. As a small multidisciplinary department, most of our research falls between the humanities and the political and social sciences, but we also produce a substantial body of interdisciplinary work, particularly in the history of ideas, radical movements and activism, in gender politics, international history, international politics, government and governance, and politics, art and politics, religion and politics, media studies and history, digital humanities, etc. All department staff are research-active. This is reflected in the REF 2014 results, where the department finished 8th for research intensity in the Unit of Assessment D27 ‘Area Studies’.
