International Relations PhD research programme at Anglia Ruskin University will allow you to explore your own interests in international relations and international politics, supported by the expertise of our staff.
You'll be allocated two supervisors, with additional staff members available if necessary. Our supervisors are experienced in most areas of international relations, with particular strengths in international political theory, security studies, military studies, development, political philosophy, human rights and (counter) terrorism studies. The International Relations degree also links in closely with Criminology at Anglia Ruskin, so that you can benefit from a rich and broad environment for specialised research.
We'll provide you with a rich and stimulating research environment with strong links to research networks in Anglia Ruskin and the wider community, including the University of Cambridge's Centre for Research into Arts, Social Sciences, and Humanities (CRASSH), and links to Citizens Advice Bureau, the National Probation Service, the Crown Court and Crown Prosecution Service, as well as Cambridgeshire Police. We host the Labour History Research Unit (LHRU), which covers aspects of national and international political history, and contribute to many of our Faculty's other research groups, including the Policing Institute for the Eastern Region (PIER) and the StoryLab Research Institute.
