We actively engage in work that enhances both academic understanding and international policy-making through our engagement with various research networks.
The department is celebrating the confirmation of our status as an internationally excellent research-led teaching department.
The Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014 rated 57% of our research as either 'world leading' (4* - 17%) or 'internationally excellent' (3* - 40%).
Our 4* research outputs place us at 23rd position out of 56 departments and units evaluated in REF2014, ahead of many well-established departments, an excellent result.
Our research environment is improving rapidly as is the impact of our research in policymaking and the media. This is the Department's first REF since we were formed just 7 years ago and represents a very solid foundation for the future.
We welcome collaborators, research partners and research students who would like to work with us on these and other issues of International Politics. We offer excellent facilities for visiting scholars and researchers.
