Research Groups & Clusters

The Research Clusters hold regular meetings to discuss ongoing research projects of their members, comment on draft funding applications and provide feedback on research papers. They also provide support to individual members in organising wider research events.

We also support closer collaboration of individual colleagues in exploring a particular research agenda or area together through more specialised Research Groups. We are proud of growing Research Groups in Gender and Politics, and Quantitative Research in Politics.

We host the Jean Monnet Centre and lead two cross-faculty interdisciplinary groups:

In addition, we are active participants in several cross-School and cross-faculty research groups:

We also contribute to the work of the University’s Societal Challenge Institutes: the Newcastle University Institute for Social Renewal and the Newcastle Institute for Research on Sustainability.
