Course summary

Our cluster explores the political ideas that have shaped the world we live in; unearths deep structures of power; evaluates current political arrangements; provides new conceptual tools for understanding and orienting ourselves in the world, and develops normative standards for the evaluation of political processes and their outcomes.

York is a world-leading centre for the study of political theory. With many political theorists, York offers unusual breath and richness in the discipline. Our research is pluralistic, combining analytic, critical, historical and feminist approaches.

Areas of outstanding strength include early modern political thought, historical injustice, applied ethics, deliberative democracy, liberal public justification, political representation, republicanism, pragmatism, Open Marxism, postcolonial theory, the politics of expertise, the politics of self-determination and the politics of cultural diversity.
