Research expertise includes political theory, public policy, the politics of devolution, and International Relations, including international law, global ethics, security and piracy.

Our long established reputation for scholarship in the area of socio-legal studies is focused on the newly established Centre for Law and Society and the Journal of Law and Society which we host. It is enriched by extensive collaboration with other Schools in the University and beyond. We also work closely with a number of centres including the The British Idealism and Collingwood Centre and the Wales Governance Centre, as well as external partners like the Welsh Centre for International Affairs.
