Comparative Politics

We have a vibrant and growing comparative politics group which brings together researchers who study comparative public opinion and elections, political development, issues of identity and political culture, political institutions and political conflict.

Members of the group also have a range of geographic expertise and conduct research on political phenomena in Britain, Continental Europe, the United States, the Middle East, Sub-Saharan Africa and Asia. The principal collective organisation within the comparative politics group is the Centre for Institutions and Political Behaviour, which has an emerging reputation for strength in quantitative research methods and hosts regular internal research workshops and a guest speaker series. However, members of the broader comparative politics group use a variety of qualitative and quantitative methods in their research.
