We cover a broad area of expertise, from local policy to global governance, political theory to empirical studies, constructivism to rational choice approaches.

Major research focuses include:
- sub-state and supranational dimensions of politics and public policy
- the impact of devolution in the UK and elsewhere, and the constitution and governance of the European Union
- international politics: changing relations, the new security agenda, transatlantic relations, political economy, migration politics and global governance
- nationalism, democratic transition, civil society and institution-building
- health, welfare, environment, competition, migrations and citizenship, and equal opportunities policies
