Research is at the heart of the Institute for Diplomacy and International Governance. We are always keen to hear from students who want to develop their own research proposal so if you're interested in addressing complex issues involving modern diplomacy, international security, international business and trade, global communication and information management then pursuing a PhD could be for you.
Active research underpins our ability to deliver an outstanding teaching experience at the forefront of our discipline. You will have the opportunity to work with leading researchers and practitioners of diplomacy and related disciplines in order to gain first-hand experience of real-life problem solving.
Brexit Diplomacy
Diplomacy is at the heart of many key issues facing the UK today, particularly the developments and repercussions of Britain's exit from the EU, which is often referred to in shorthand as Brexit. Over the coming years, you will have the opportunity to become experts in this critical topic, as it unfolds around you in London.
The Director of the Institute for Diplomacy and International Governance, Professor Helen Drake is leading a team of researchers to examine the politics, diplomacy and governance of Brexit. These findings are embedded into the teaching of our programmes, enabling you to discover the opportunities and challenges surrounding Brexit and their effect on the UK, the rest of the EU and Europe more broadly.
The Institute currently leads research into the following areas. These are not exclusive and we encourage potential candidates to contact us for discussion before submitting an application:
• The European Union (including its institutions; member state domestic politics; EU-Russia relations; the EU as a foreign policy actor; the politics, diplomacy and governance of Brexit; the UK as a global actor post-Brexit; Brexit and its effect on the UK, the rest of the EU and Europe more broadly)
• The UK and transatlantic relations, especially their security dimensions
• London and other global cities
• Political representation and participation of minority and marginalised communities, particularly Roma across central and eastern Europe, but also LGBTIQ communities
