International Studies Research Unit
The International Studies Research Unit addresses core contemporary questions in the theory and practice of world politics and global governance from an interdisciplinary perspective. It strategically links senior and junior scholars working on international political issues and seeks an active dialogue with international policymakers. The Unit also provides a stimulating and supportive research environment for our PhD and postdoctoral community working in this area. The Unit has developed particular expertise in the sub-fields of International Political Theory, International Political Sociology, International Organizations, and International Security. It collaborates with universities across the globe, is active in several associations and maintains relations with a range of key international organizations. The Unit hosts a lecture series that provides the platform for cutting edge research and an engagement with policymakers. The Unit also runs an international visiting fellow programme.
