We produce innovative and high-quality research into some of the most pressing challenges in international politics.
Our expertise spans most areas of the world, including Latin America, South East Asia, the Middle East and Northern Africa, Sub-Saharan Africa, Southern Africa, China and the Caucasus.
We have worked with major donors and stakeholders, including DFID, Amnesty International and UNDP, to address the biggest problems facing the world’s most vulnerable peoples. We have made important contributions to academic and policy debates on a number of issues including: fragile and unrecognized states, ethnic conflict, nuclear arms policy, counter-terrorism, social movements and political activism, sustainable development, international trade, human rights, children’s rights, global health, asylum and migration.

Interdisciplinary Global Development Centre
The Interdisciplinary Global Development Centre (IGDC) provides both critical research on global injustices and, at the same time, to help find practical and participatory solutions to pressing problems, wherever possible. A commitment to human rights and social justice informs all our work.
The Conflict, Peace & Security research group produces cutting-edge work on violent conflicts, within and between states, and other global security challenges. We have a large PhD community and we host the popular MA in Post-War Recovery Studies.
