Profile Description

The School of Politics and International Relations has a long tradition of high-quality research among its staff and students. The School's vibrant research culture attracts students from all over the world who conduct research at the forefront of our discipline. The School is unique in offering programmes in both Canterbury and Brussels, the home of European politics.

Our research programmes provide a combination of formal research training and individual supervision within a supportive environment, with regular interaction between staff and students. The School runs a weekly Graduate Research Training Seminar, where students are encouraged to present their work and receive feedback from peers and staff.

Students enjoy regular meetings with a supervisor and supervisory team, and are also given opportunities to collaborate with other members of staff through the staff research seminar and the activities of the School's research centres. Students are encouraged to participate in the annual postgraduate research conference, during which various staff members discuss the work of research students, and outside speakers offer plenary lectures. Research students will also be able to benefit from the skills training offered by the University's Graduate School.


Research expertise

Our research interests span a broad spectrum of the discipline, with particular strengths in the fields of conflict analysis and resolution, political theory and European politics. The strength of the School's research culture is reflected in the numerous books and articles published and in the existence of three University-recognised research centres: the Conflict Analysis Research Centre (CARC), the Global Europe Centre (GEC) and the Centre for Critical Thought (CCT).

The breadth of expertise within the School enables us to provide research supervision on a wide range of topics across the area of Politics and International Relations. You can view the profiles of our academic staff members here.
