Our Centre for Political Thought exists to promote the critical study of political ideas, concepts and theories, both philosophically and historically. We wish to understand the expression 'political thought' as broadly as possible and to provide a forum for all scholars working in the field.
We aim to encourage scholarly research and publication, engage with scholars across Durham University, and foster collaborations on a regional, national and international level. Inclusion of the undergraduate and postgraduate students from the School of Government and International Affairs (SGIA) is one of our prime objectives.
We are rare among Politics Departments in the UK in containing a high concentration of expertise in British political thought.
