Politics research

History Department iconWe have an excellent record in both teaching and research as demonstrated by our excellent records at Internal Subject Reviews and earlier QAA inspections. Futhermore, our dynamic team of staff will be entered as a Politics unit in the Research Excellence Framework (REF).

We are able to explore such a wide range of national and international topics and issues because our staff are research-active with a variety of specialisations:

  • Area politics, including the UK, Europe, Latin America, Middle East, Africa, Russia and the Balkans;
  • Gender politics;
  • Human rights;
  • International relations;
  • Political communications;
  • Nationalism;
  • Environmental politics;
  • Terrorism and political violence;
  • Political ideas.
