Current priorities

Support DPIR

The Department of Politics and International Relations produces cutting-edge research in comparative politics, international relations and political theory. It consistently ranks as one of the top departments in the world and is responsible for the PPE and History & Politics curriculum as well as training one of the largest groups of political scientists in the world.   

The work of its academics spans issues such as peace, conflict and security, race, gender and free speech, as well as justice, freedom and democracy. It shapes and informs policies at the local, national and international level, and supports major agencies like the UN, NATO, and WTO.    

To continue our work, we need your help. Please, consider donating towards our graduate scholarship or teaching fund, so that we may continue to attract and develop talented new political scientists and provide unparalleled teaching to both our graduate and undergraduate students.
