Our research activity is guided by a focus on key elements: International Relations, Global Development and Security; Conflict and Climate Change; Culture, Politics, and Society.
All researchers across the School identify with one or more of the themes. This enables the collective identification of themes within the School and aims to generate further collaboration and interdisciplinary focus in our research activities. In addition, the themes provide a basis for internal and external recognition of the main questions and topics that our research addresses.
