Comparative Politics Group

The Comparative Politics Group, established in 2010, is a vibrant cluster of political scientists conducting research on some of the most pressing national and international questions in contemporary politics.

The Group provides a forum for empirical research on key political issues. Its staff and PhD student members conduct a variety of research projects (see Research), supported by domestic and international funding agencies. The Group convenes a fortnightly seminar (see Events) at which members present ongoing research and grant applications.

The Group welcomes inquiries from prospective students interested in study at Kent on our PhD in Comparative Politics.

The Group has links to other groups at Kent devoted to research on political attitudes and behaviour:

Conflict Analysis Research Centre
Political Psychology lab
Centre for the Study of Social and Political Movements
