International Relations

The International Relations (IR) community at the Department of Political Science is a vibrant and active research community. It is comprised of a number of research centres and groups. These contribute to different academic debates in the field of IR. They combine an interest in advancing theory and methodological innovation with in-depth empirical work on issues such as international and regional governance, security and conflict, small states, diplomacy, international institutions, or climate change.

United Nations Flags

The members of the IR groups and centres are internationally leading researchers on international security, global risk and military studies, as well as on international political economy, international organisations and foreign policy analysis. The group’s members have a global reputation for innovative and pathbreaking research.

The IR research groups and centres contribute to the academic environment at the department through lectures and seminars with leading experts, conveying the latest knowledge and research along with methodological takes on IR. Together with teaching and supervision at both bachelor’s and master’s level, the IR community is an active contributor to the ongoing research-led dialogue between students and researchers at the department.
