Politics and International Relations (PIR): Research


International Relations

Welcome to the 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.

The research group meets weekly during the semester. Members share research papers a week in advance, and then have the opportunity to present their work and receive feedback in an intensive (but friendly) hour-long meeting. If you wish to know more about the group, or join the group, please contact the convener, Andrea Birdsall.

Meetings take place in Room 2.15 of the Chrystal Macmillan Building, 15A George Square, Edinburgh, EH8 9LD.

We generally meet every Monday at 1.00-2.00pm in term-time.
