Flexible platforms for our cutting edge research

Our constantly evolving Research Clusters provide focal points for collaboration in different areas of social, legal and political research. Through them our researchers can share ideas, develop projects, gain peer support, access broader networks and organise seminars and conferences.

Staff members can belong to multiple clusters, as can collaborators from across the University and beyond.

Clusters provide the framework for delivering postgraduate research supervision and support, with students fully integrated into projects.
