Course summary

The Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) programme comprises a significant piece of research which will enable you to contribute to the academic community through a large written thesis (typically up to 90,000 words). You can complete your PhD in 2 to 4 years (full-time) or up to 6 years (part-time). If you have a limited grounding in the research methods relevant to this subject, we strongly recommend you apply after first completing a relevant one-year MRes.

Overview

This PhD is designed to support interdisciplinary research into security, conflict and human rights. It is broad in its scope, ranging from political theory debates over the nature and demands of ‘justice’ to empirical analysis of conflict and security dilemmas in different parts of the world; and from micro-level studies of violence at the individual or household level to questions of justice and equality in a rapidly changing world.

The research promoted under this area is united by a concern to move beyond disciplinary boundaries in understanding these challenges and a concern with the implications of research for policy and political action to improve the security and livelihoods of the vulnerable and excluded.

The programme brings together research perspectives from disciplines such as political science, sociology and psychology as well as interdisciplinary perspectives such as gender studies and international development.
