Europe is a federation of states that have joined together to solve the most pressing global challenges of the 21st century. Our focus goes beyond the European Union, drawing broadly on historical and socio-cultural theories with a focus on the wider European continent, its cultures, politics and societies.
We specialise in the social and political structures of contemporary Europe and the European Union, bringing international relations theory, globalisation and world systems theory to bear on contemporary problems and understandings. Our graduates work in journalism, media, government, non-government organisations, multinational business, education and training.
