International Relations Research Group

We are a research group within Politics and International Relations, but we like to think interdisciplinarily. We welcome research students and staff from across the School of Social & Political Science, and from beyond, as members, and invite them to attend, participate and present at our meetings. Below is a listing of our upcoming events.
