The School of Politics, International Studies and Philosophy has a strong international reputation for innovative research, across a wide range of specialist areas, with both Units of Assessment (Politics International Studies and Philosophy) performing strongly in the 2008 RAE. Researchers in the School work within - and, where appropriate, across - the following research subject areas:
In each of these areas, important and pioneering work has been published by members of the School (with leading academic presses and in journals with high international standing), and major projects of research are ongoing in all of these fields. Several of these projects are funded by research councils in the UK and Ireland and by the EU.
