A home to world-leading political scientists and thinkers

DPIR is one of the largest departments working in Politics and International Relations, in the UK and world-wide, and a proud home to world-leading experts in the disciplines of political theory, comparative politics, and international relations.

It is this broad range of expertise—matched with an exceptional depth of specialism, and global range of our case studies—that makes our Department such an exciting place to research and study.

The Department is located in the Manor Road Building, along with the Department of Economics, and the new Social Science Library.
