Program Description:

The Department of Political Economy is the only political economy department in the UK. We welcome applications for postgraduate research in political economy, economics, and politics. Particular areas of strength in the department include Austrian economics, the politics of emerging economies, political theory, public policy, and health technology. Our research uses a range of methodological approaches and includes European governance, regulation and economic decision-making; political theory, political philosophy, and the history of political thought; democratic theory, elections, and parties; political science, comparative politics, and political sociology; public policy and policy analysis; and international relations and foreign policy analysis. 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.
