University of Stirling

International Politics research at the University of Stirling focuses on the role and influence of international organisations, networks, ideas, and policy agendas, with a particular focus is on human rights and human security. Researchers are at the forefront of critical academic and policymaker debates on the global governance of human rights, including the analysis of the gendered institutions, networks, and practices that influence foreign policy, peace, and security, the actors and organisations fostering conflict and cooperation in Middle East politics, and the normative foundations and limits of a human right to freedom of religion.
