Diversity & Inclusion in the Department of Political Economy

The Department of Political Economy supports and promotes diversity and inclusion. We foster an inclusive environment in which staff and students are treated with dignity and respect. We are committed to ensuring that all students and staff are treated equitably and are not accorded less favourable treatment because of age, marital/civil partnership status, sex, disability, race, colour, ethnic or national origin, sexual orientation, family circumstances, religious or political beliefs and transgender status. We are also committed to enhancing the work-life balance of all staff in relation to caring responsibilities and other issues affecting well-being. We want our students to be part of an inclusive, welcoming and supportive campus community.
