The programme is shaped by several key
themes which reflects the research expertise of the teaching staff, the high profile and externally funded research projects we are involved in, and our wider community of post-doctoral researchers and PhD students.
We also also have a substantial record of working with external parties including UK government departments, international agencies, non-governmental organizations and specialist bodies addressing areas that reflect our teaching interests in security policy making, polar geopolitics,
contingencies preparation and social media/diplomacy.
Our staff have presented their work to international conferences, specialist workshops hosted by European embassies and government departments, and acted as
consultants for governments around the world.
Our key thematic areas are:
Creativity, Geopolitics and Security
Boundaries, Borders and Mobilities
Communications, Social Media and
Resources, Territory and the Polar Regions
