We offer research supervision for MPhil and PhD dissertations on a variety of areas within European & International Studies. Specialisations include European and national identities; Europeanisation; European and national political thought; EU foreign and security policy; democratization and state-building; modern social theory; contemporary European and world history; globalisation; international political economy; migration; social movements; the politics of culture; lobbying and legislative decision-making; energy policy and EU-Asia relations.
Every research student is assigned a primary and secondary supervisor. Their progress is monitored through regular meetings of a review panel. European & International Studies mounts regular research seminars and occasional conferences with invited outside speakers. In addition, the European & International Studies Research Students' Workshop allows research students to report on their work in progress and receive feedback from staff members and fellow students.
The School of Arts & Humanities runs a compulsory research training course for all new MPhil/PhD students. Additional research training, where necessary, is agreed between the students and supervisors.
