Department of Government and International Relations
Welcome to the Department of Government and International Relations at the University of Sydney. We are a comprehensive political science department, with particular expertise in International Relations, International Security, Comparative Politics, Australian Politics, Public Policy, Media Politics, Environmental Politics and Political Theory. The Department was one of only four Politics departments ranked a 5 in the 2015 Excellence in Research Australia (the top ranking). Our aim is to:
Produce world class research which continually advances the intellectual boundaries of the discipline and develops our understanding of real world political phenomena.
Deliver high quality teaching and research programs at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, which are both intellectually and vocationally relevant.
Develop mutually beneficial links with our many professional, research and educational communities.
Establish the Department as the premier political science department in Australia, and one of the leading political science departments in the region and the world.
We are also engaged in a variety of interdisciplinary projects, including human rights, democratization, public policy, environment and climate change, immigration policy and law, electoral integrity, China studies and the Religion, State and Society Research Network.
The UK needs a long-term project of nation-building, not continuation with the neoliberal policy settings of the last 40 years, writes Associate Professor John Mikler for the Sheffield Political Economy Research Institute blog.
