Research and innovation
Our staff and postgraduate researchers engage in innovative research across a wide range of periods and geographical settings spanning the globe. We work closely with partners, institutions, and communities locally, nationally, and around the world to translate our findings into real-world impacts that effect positive change.
Interdisciplinarity is a hallmark of our research, and we are active participants in a range of interdisciplinary centres and institutes across the University.
Our research is clustered into six over-arching themes bringing together a variety of research projects.
The Politics, Diplomacy and International History cluster brings together researchers with a shared interest in international affairs.More on Politics, Diplomacy and International History
