Politics Seminars

Our programme of politics seminars showcase some of the great research in the field of politics and can potentially help you with your learning.

Since 2008, we have organised more than 50 conferences and workshops. In the same period, we have had more than 100 invited speakers at our regular seminar series. 

We also organise the Newcastle Ethics, Legal and Political Philosophy group (NELPP) seminar series and the activities of the Postcolonial Research group.

The Jean Monnet Centre also organises workshops and other events.
