Primary supervisor: Professor Helen Drake

Research is at the heart of the Institute for Diplomacy and International Governance (IDIG). If you are interested in addressing complex, international issues and developing your professional research skills, then pursuing a PhD in IDIG could be for you. IDIG’s academics offer research expertise and experience in numerous aspects of the study of diplomacy and international governance. They are extremely well-networked with professionals outside of academia in their respective fields. In some cases, the Institute can provide joint supervisory arrangements with colleagues from other Loughborough University London institutes and from research teams based at Loughborough University’s East Midlands campus, for example the School of Social Sciences and Humanities. Our aim is to create a vibrant, supportive, enthusiastic and forward-thinking research community where our academics and research students work closely together to examine solutions to real-world problems of diplomacy and international governance. Our London campus facilitates easy access to decision-makers and practitioners of all kinds, as well as to the rich academic sources the capital has to offer.

Loughborough University is a top-ten rated university in England for research intensity (REF2014). In choosing Loughborough for your research, you’ll work alongside academics who are leaders in their field. You will benefit from comprehensive support and guidance from our Doctoral College, including tailored careers advice, to help you succeed in your research and future career.

Full Project Detail:

We want to recruit an excellent PhD student in the subject area of diplomacy and/or international governance. The successful candidate will join the Institute for Diplomacy and International Governance which has a reputation for research of academic excellence and real-world interest. This is a field of study that lends itself to interdisciplinary, innovative and applied research. We are looking for candidates who wish to join us either to further our current projects which span digital diplomacy, post-Brexit and bilateral diplomacy, diplomacy for peace and security, the politics of diplomacy, and experimentalist governance; or to bring something new in these fields. We would like to hear from candidates whose background – academic and/or professional – offers potential for international collaboration, and who wish to join a dynamic and diverse campus- Loughborough London -  that is research-intensive with an entrepreneurial emphasis.  If you have a great idea for a PhD in this area, then we'd love to hear it: do get in touch.
