Work In Progress

ISRU Seminar/Lecture Series 2020

The International Studies Research Unit (ISRU) is a forum that focusses on the advancement of research and practice in the field of international studies. It is based in the Cardiff University School of Law and Politics and is an interdisciplinary research unit. The ISRU is open to everyone interested in research on global and international issues. It is an intellectual meeting place for scholars, practitioners, policymakers and civil society groups, and offers the opportunity to transcend disciplinary boundaries. At the centre of ISRU are activities that strengthen research in the field and enable the dialogue between theory and policy. We organise a bi-weekly Work-In-Progress Seminar.
