About

The Department of Political Economy is the only political economy department in the UK. We welcome applications for postgraduate research in politics, economics and political economy. Particular areas of strength in the department include public policy, health technology, Austrian economics, political theory, and the politics of emerging economies.

Our research uses a range of methodological approaches and includes political science, comparative politics, and political sociology; public policy and policy analysis; international relations and foreign policy analysis; European governance, regulation and economic decision-making; political theory, political philosophy, and the history of political thought; democratic theory, elections, and parties. Forthcoming appointments will strengthen and expand these areas of expertise. Admission to the PhD programme is highly selective, and requires a good match between PhD topic and supervisor capabilities.
