DPIR centres for research
The Department is home to the Oxford Centre for International Studies and Oxford Centre for the Study of Social Justice. Forums for research production and engagement in their respective subject area, they forge connections within Oxford and building bridges with experts around the world.
The Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism (RISJ) is also part of the Department. Based at 13 Norham Gardens in Oxford, the institute is dedicated to exploring the future of journalism worldwide through debate, engagement, and research.
Our specialist networks
DPIR academics, researchers and students automatically join one of our three vibrant research networks. These networks reflect the Department's three pillars of research—in Comparative Politics and Government, Political Theory, and International Relations—and welcome Associates, Visitors, and College Staff working on these themes to join them. There is also the Oxford-Sciences Po (OxPo) Network, a joint venture between Sciences Po in Paris and the University of Oxford's Oxford Centre for European History, Departments of Politics and International Relations, Social Policy and Intervention, and Sociology providing a meeting point for scholars at both institutions with the objective of fostering and stimulating joint scientific projects.
Oxford's politics community
DPIR is part of a wider network of Oxford departments and colleges working in Politics and International Studies. Each hosts its own research centres and programmes that support specific in-depth research, engagement and impact in a way that is agile and responsive to real-world challenges.
