The section “International Relations” has particular strengths in International Relations Theory, International Political Economy, European Studies, and Peace & Conflict Studies, as well as the study of foreign policy, international security and statecraft more broadly. Its area specialists cover Europe, the USA, the Middle East, Africa and East Asia. Many of its individual researchers contribute to more than one of these subjects, and they are active in interdisciplinary Hot Spots and research collaborations within Nijmegen School of Management and beyond.
The section prides itself on the linkage between its research and teaching at all levels. It (co)organizes the MA specialisations in International Relations, Global Political Economy, European Union Politics and Governance, and in Conflict, Power & Politics.
