International Relations Research Cluster
The International Relations research cluster welcomes staff and research students from across the Politics and International Relations Subject to attend and present at our meetings.
We meet several times each semester with the aim of sustaining a supportive research environment among staff and students. We share work ahead of meetings – such as article manuscripts, book proposals, and grant applications – and offer critical but constructive feedback all while learning more about each others' research.
In recent years work presented at the cluster has been published in leading international relations journals such as International Studies Quarterly, International Theory, International Relations, International Political Sociology, and others.
Papers published based on our activities include:
