Politics and International Relations (PIR): Research



This 'International Relations Research Group' (IRRG) is open to all staff and research students based at or visting the University of Edinburgh. Crucially, this is a 'read before' event: we try to circulate papers a week in advance of our meetings. If you want to receive our weekly papers, updates about the group, or to present to the group, then contact the convenor, Andy Hom
