We draw together academics and students with an interest in international studies.
The International Studies Research Group brings together University of Worcester academics and students, as well as external scholars.
We encourage interdisciplinary and collaborative research in international studies and provide a forum for new and innovative research. The group is integral to the purpose and activities of the Institute of Humanities, in particular enriching undergraduate teaching and postgraduate research.
