Research centres & groups

 

The Department of European & International Studies currently hosts five research groups. 

Our aim is to produce world leading research in the fields of European studies, European politics and international political economy that contributes not only to scholarship but also has a wider impact in the public and political spheres

Our research groups

The Comparative Politics Group is an inter-departmental research group with member from across the Faculty of Social Sciences & Public Policy.

Group members from the Department of European & International Studies are currently working on a range of subjects that directly address the challenges and potential crises facing the EU and individual European states.

More about the Comparative Politics Research Group

This interdisciplinary research group in the Department of European and International Studies (EIS) re-examines key concepts in Europe through a shared lens of critical theory.

It critically evaluates the nature and role of transformations in empire, nation, and class in Europe. Using a social historical perspective, we explore movements, processes of identity formation and political change in Europe during moments of crisis.

More about the Critical European Studies Research Group

The main focus of the International Political Economy research group is on examining the contemporary global crisis, both in its more structural dimension captured by the current debate on the retreat of globalisation, and in some of its more specific processes. These include the long aftermath of the global financial crisis and the legitimacy of institutions concerned with global governance.
