We seek to produce world-leading research that develops new empirical knowledge, employs innovative theory, and addresses vital policy issues
Two core values characterise research in Politics at King’s, a commitment to the College mission of advancing knowledge ‘in the service of society’, and a celebration of diversity and interdisciplinarity. King’s already supports inter-departmental research activities through research centres and groups focused on particular issues and themes such as energy, cyber-security, global biopolitics
, defence studies, military health research, and radicalisation and political violence
. Interdisciplinarity is also to be found in the Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence
on european law and governance.
Politics at King’s expands and anchors these activities in an enhanced framework for collaboration. The Politics at King’s research network grows out of departments with their thriving research cultures, building new links and fostering new forms of cooperation between staff and students from different departments, institutes and centres.
Our goal is to:
- Facilitate joint-authorship of publications with colleagues from different departments.
- Strengthen new multi-disciplinary, inter-departmental and cross-departmental projects on methods, approaches and key questions.
- Improve the environment for our world-leading researchers, who contribute a wealth of expertise and diverse approaches to their joint projects.
- Develop impact through engagement and knowledge exchange with external partners, governmental bodies, international organisations, and think tanks.
- Provide better advice for governments, international bodies and businesses seeking expert guidance; this includes contributing advice to public and judicial enquiries.
- Promote public understanding through advancing the wider dissemination of research findings in this area.
