Sociology, Politics and International Studies

The School of Sociology, Politics and International Studies is an interdisciplinary scholarly environment, producing leading research that is international in its focus and relevant to the changing circumstances of an increasingly interconnected world. The programmes we offer are PhD in Politics, PhD in Sociology and PhD in East Asian Studies. We are committed to rigorous conceptual and empirical research that is politically and socially relevant and problem-orientated. We aim to advance theory, knowledge and methods at the interface between sociology, politics and international relations. The questions addressed recognise that political structures are related in complex ways to the social conditions that underlie them; likewise, social conditions are affected in complex ways by political structures. Our aim is not just to monitor the global condition but to contribute to ways that might improve it.
