The School's Research Clusters are: Children, Youth and Families (the Child and Youth Research Centre Gender, Empowerment and Globalisation Governance and Sustainable Development Power, Conflict and Ideologies Applications within these areas, and/or which combine a Sociological with Political Science/Theory approach, would be particularly welcome, although, others should not feel precluded from applying. In choosing a research topic, it is particularly important to identify a potential supervisor with appropriate research interests.
