This is in addition to two letters of recommendation, and a brief personal statement outlining interest and areas of specialism being considered, as well as a complete CV.

As global inequality marches on we are forced to confront the following question: ‘Is an alternative to the current global distribution of power and resources possible’ We have seen the rise of left and right wing forms of populism as a response to processes of global change. But there may be other responses which we are yet to imagine.

The Politics programme will provide you with the critical research tools with which you can address these issues and questions. The specialism in Radical Political Theory will orient your thinking to the possibility of a new and alternative future – grounded in a firm knowledge of our shared past.
