“Cambridge hosts some of the world-leading research clusters at the cutting edge of theory, history and practice in Politics and International Studies. POLIS is an exceptional intellectual home for those whose research aspires to inform theoretical debates with rich insights from the field.”  

Babak Mohammadzadeh (September 2017)

"POLIS offers a tremendous environment for genuine interdisciplinary research and creates an open and friendly atmosphere for students, scholars, and staff. The international character of the research done in the department is reflected in the many nationalities present, which greatly enriches the conversations inside and outside the classroom".  

Mariƫtta van der Tol (September 2017)
