Research is important to us

As old paradigms and models continue to expose their limitations, there has never been a greater need for a new understanding of how the international arena works.

Graduates have gone on to work for leading organisations

Graduates are currently employed within leading international and regional organisations such as the United Nations, NATO, the European Union and the League of Arab States. Graduates have also entered multinational defence organisations and global security operations, as well as various positions within the media.
